Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the pathologic Complete Response (pCR) rate [ Time Frame: At time of surgery, an expected average of 24-26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine the pathologic Complete Response (pCR) rates associated with weekly treatment of MM-121 plus paclitaxel followed by the combination treatment of doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide compared with weekly paclitaxel alone followed by the combination treatment of doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative primary breast cancer


Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: August 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MM-121 (SAR256212) + paclitaxel Drug: MM-121 (SAR256212) plus paclitaxel
Treatment of MM-121 (SAR256212) IV plus standard dosing of paclitaxel IV, followed by standard dosing of doxorubicin IV plus cyclophosphamide IV, followed by surgery.
Active Comparator: Paclitaxel only Drug: Paclitaxel
Standard dosing of paclitaxel IV, followed by standard dosing of doxorubicin IV plus cyclophosphamide IV, followed by surgery.

Detailed Description:

This is a multicenter, open-label, randomized, Phase II study of preoperative MM-121 with paclitaxel in HER2-negative breast cancer. Patients will be randomized to receive paclitaxel with or without MM-121 for 12 weeks followed by 4 cycles of doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide and subsequent surgery.
