Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Confirmed Objective Response (OR) by Independent External Review (IER) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to progressive disease or death, assessed every 6 weeks (up to 90 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of participants with confirmed objective response will be based on assessment of confirmed complete response (CR) or confirmed partial response (PR) according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). Confirmed responses are those that persist on repeat imaging study at least 4 weeks after initial documentation of response. CR is defined as disappearance of all target lesions. PR is those with at least 30 percent decrease in the sum of longest dimensions of target lesions taking as a reference baseline sum longest dimensions. IER will be done to re-examine all Investigator assessed outcomes.

  • Percentage of Participants With Confirmed Objective Response (OR) by Investigators' Assessment [ Time Frame: Baseline up to progressive disease or death, assessed every 6 weeks (up to 90 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of participants with objective response based assessment of confirmed CR or confirmed PR according to RECIST. Confirmed responses are those that persist on repeat imaging study at least 4 weeks after initial documentation of response. The CR is defined as disappearance of all target lesions. The PR is those with at least 30 percent decrease in the sum of longest dimensions of target lesions taking as a reference baseline sum longest dimensions.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Duration of Response (DR) by Independent Expert Review (IER) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to progressive disease or death, assessed every 6 weeks (up to 90 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of Response is considered as time in months from the first documentation of objective tumor response to objective tumor progression or death due to any cause. Duration of tumor response was calculated as: (the date of the first documentation of objective tumor progression or death due to cancer minus the date of the first CR or PR that will be subsequently confirmed plus 1) divided by 30.44. DR will be calculated for the subgroup of participants with a confirmed objective tumor response. IER will be done to re-examine all Investigator assessed outcomes and to provide an independent assessment of response and progression date.

  • Duration of Response (DR) by Investigators' Assessment [ Time Frame: Baseline up to progressive disease or death, assessed every 6 weeks (up to 90 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of Response is considered as time in months from the first documentation of objective tumor response to objective tumor progression or death due to any cause. Duration of tumor response is calculated as: (the date of the first documentation of objective tumor progression or death due to cancer minus the date of the first CR or PR that will be subsequently confirmed plus 1) divided by 30.44. The DR will be calculated for the subgroup of participants with a confirmed objective tumor response.

  • Progression-Free Survival (PFS) by Independent Expert Review (IER) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to progressive disease or death, assessed every 6 weeks (up to 90 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PFS is defined as the time in months from start of study treatment to first documentation of objective tumor progression or death due to any cause whichever comes first. PFS is calculated as (first event date minus the date of first dose of study medication plus 1) divided by 30.44. Tumor progression will be determined from radiological image (where data meet the criteria for progressive disease [PD]). IER will be done to re-examine all Investigator assessed outcomes and to provide an independent assessment of response and progression date.

  • Progression-Free Survival (PFS) by Investigators' Assessment [ Time Frame: Baseline up to progressive disease or death, assessed every 6 weeks (up to 90 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PFS is defined as the time in months from start of study treatment to first documentation of objective tumor progression or death due to any cause whichever comes first. PFS is calculated as (first event date minus the date of first dose of study medication plus 1) divided by 30.44. Tumor progression will be determined from radiological image (where data meet the criteria for progressive disease [PD]). IER will be done to re-examine all Investigator assessed outcomes and to provide an independent assessment of response and progression date.

  • Number of Participants With Changes in Tumor Volume [ Time Frame: Baseline up to progressive disease or death, assessed every 6 weeks (up to 90 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Three dimensional analysis will be used to measure changes in tumor volume.

  • Number of Participants With Changes in Tumoral Radiological Density [ Time Frame: Baseline up to progressive disease or death, assessed every 6 weeks (up to 90 weeks) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Three dimensional analysis will be used to measure changes in tumoral radiological density.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 30 days after last dose of study drug ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An adverse event is any untoward medical event that occurs in a participant administered an investigational product, and it does not necessarily indicate only events with clear causal relationship with the relevant investigational product.

Detailed Description:

This is an open-label (all people know the identity of the intervention), prospective (study following participants forward in time), multi-center (when more than 1 hospital or medical school team work on a medical research study) study evaluating the effectiveness and safety of trabectedin in 3 subpopulations of breast cancer participants: Group A: triple negative profile for estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor and human estrogen receptor, Group B: human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 overexpressing tumors (HER-2+) and Group C: familial breast cancer gene 1 (BRCA1) or breast cancer gene 2 (BRCA2) mutation carrier. Participants will receive trabectedin 1.3 milligram per square meter (mg/m^2) intravenous infusion (a fluid or a medicine delivered into a vein by way of a needle) over 3-hour every 3 weeks, on Day 1 of each cycle. Each cycle length will be 3 weeks. Treatment will be continued until disease progression, unmanageable toxicity, participant refusal or treatment delay no longer than 3 weeks due to toxicity. Efficacy will be primarily evaluated by percentage of participants with confirmed objective response by independent external review and Investigators assessment. Participants' safety will be monitored throughout the study.
