  Purpose

This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of eribulin in combination with carboplatin and trastuzumab in the neoadjuvant setting in subjects who are human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)2 positive and are clinically stage IIA to IIIB.

The study regimen will be administered every 3 weeks for a total of 6 cycles followed by definitive surgery.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy as measured by pathologic complete response at surgery [ Time Frame: Assessed at time of definitive surgery, 3 to 8 weeks after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Definitive surgery will be performed 3 to 8 weeks after completion of study treatment. The pathology report will be scored for pathologic response: complete pathologic response, partial pathologic response, or no response.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy as measured by clinical response prior to surgery [ Time Frame: Assessed prior to definitive surgery, 3 weeks after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical assessment of response will be performed 3 weeks after completion of study treatment. The treating physician will assess clinical response using physical examination and radiologic evaluation. Clinical response options are complete response, partial response, no response, and progression.

  • Toxicity with a focus on peripheral neuropathy and cardiac toxicity [ Time Frame: Continuously from start of study treatment (Cycle 1 Day 1) until 48 weeks after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Toxicity will be assessed continuously during study participation through the reporting of adverse events (AEs) using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Eribulin, carboplatin, and trastuzumab
During Phase I, the eribulin dose will be assigned upon study enrollment. The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) determined in Phase I will be the dose used for Phase II. Eribulin will be administered intravenously (IV) over 2 to 5 minutes on Days 1 and 8 of each cycle. Carboplatin area under the curve (AUC) 6 will be administered IV over 15 to 30 minutes on Day 1 of each cycle. Trastuzumab will be administered as an IV infusion on Day 1 of each cycle. A loading dose of 8 mg/kg of trastuzumab will be administered over 90 minutes on Cycle 1 Day 1. Then, a maintenance dose of 6 mg/kg of trastuzumab will be administered over 30 to 90 minutes on Day 1 of Cycles 2 - 6.
Drug: eribulin
During Phase I, the eribulin dose will be assigned upon study enrollment. The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) determined in Phase I will be the dose used for Phase II. Eribulin will be administered intravenously (IV) over 2 to 5 minutes on Days 1 and 8 of each cycle.
Other Names:
  • eribulin mesylate
  • HALAVEN
Drug: carboplatin
Carboplatin area under the curve (AUC) 6 will be administered IV over 15 to 30 minutes on Day 1 of each cycle.
Drug: trastuzumab
Trastuzumab will be administered as an IV infusion on Day 1 of each cycle. A loading dose of 8 mg/kg of trastuzumab will be administered over 90 minutes on Cycle 1 Day 1. Then, a maintenance dose of 6 mg/kg of trastuzumab will be administered over 30 to 90 minutes on Day 1 of Cycles 2 - 6.
