TPI 287 in Breast Cancer Metastatic to the Brain
The goal of the first part of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of TPI-287 in patients with breast cancer that has spread to the brain.
The goal of the second part of this study is to learn if TPI-287 can control breast cancer that has spread to the brain. The safety of this drug will also be studied.

|Official Title:||A Phase II Open-Label Study of TPI 287 in Patients With Breast Cancer Metastatic to the Brain|
- Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Overall response rate [ORR = Complete Responses plus Partial Responses (CR + PR)] where response rates for brain metastases evaluated by MacDonald criteria, and for extracranial disease by standard RECIST, through a combination of radiologic scans and neurological examination and MRI brain scans.
|Study Start Date:||August 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||August 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: TPI 287
TPI 287 administered at 160 mg/m2 by vein on Day 1 and repeated every three weeks.
