A Study to Evaluate Safety and Tolerability in Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer Receiving Treatment With Caelyx (Study P04878)(COMPLETED)
This is a study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of Caelyx used for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer (MBC), focusing on infusion reaction and palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia (PPE).
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Observational Program of Caelyx in MBC - Prevention and Treatment of PPE and Infusion Reactions|
- Number of Participants With Infusion Reactions (IR) [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Infusion reaction was defined as an allergic reaction or anaphylactoid reaction characterized by shortness of breath, hypotension, back pain, chest pain, chills, flush, sweating, fever, nausea, dizziness, rash, pruritis, or tachycardia.
- Percent of Participants Taking Premedication for Prevention of IR [ Time Frame: Day 1, immediately prior to receiving first dose of pegylated liposomal doxorubicin ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Premedications for prevention of IR included corticosteroids, serotonin-3 receptor antagonists (anti-emetics), histamine-1 receptor blockers, and histamine-2 receptor blockers.
- Number of Participants With Pre-existing Allergic Conditions Who Experienced an IR [ Time Frame: Cycles 1 & 3 (Week 4 & Week 12) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Allergic conditions included food allergies, drug allergies, allergic rhinitis, histamine allergy, neurodermatitis, and chronic idiopathic urticaria.
- Number of Occurrences of Palmar-plantar Erythrodysesthesia (PPE) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]PPE was defined as a dermatological adverse event characterized by swelling, pain, edema, erythema, desquamation, that may have ultimately resulted in fissuring and ulceration, involving fingers, toes, palms, plantar aspects of the feet, and other pressure-sensitive areas of the skin.
- Number of Times Premedications Were Given for Prevention of PPE [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Pre-medications given included oral dexamethasone, vitamin B6, and other not clearly defined medications.
- Number of Participants With Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR) [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]CR and PR were documented according to the clinical standards of each site.
