Genomics assays that measure specific gene expression patterns in a patient's primary tumor have become important prognostic tools for breast cancer patients. This study is designed to test the ability of MammaPrint® in combination with TargetPrint®, BluePrint®, and TheraPrint®, as well as traditional pathologic and clinical prognostic factors, to predict responsiveness to neo-adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced breast cancer (LABC).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: HER2 negative patients

In order to provide some consistency in management and have a treatment policy in place only recommended therapy with several well accepted and presumed equivalent chemotherapy regimens will be used. The proposed neo-adjuvant chemotherapy regimens for HER2 negative patients include:

  1. TAC chemotherapy
  2. TC chemotherapy
  3. Dose Dense AC or FEC100 followed by paclitaxel or docetaxel chemotherapy
Drug: TAC chemotherapy
Docetaxel 75 mg/m2 IV day 1, Doxorubicin 50 mg/m2 IV day 1, Cyclophosphamide 500 mg/m2 IV day 1; Cycled every 21 days for 6 cycles
Drug: TC chemotherapy
Docetaxel 75 mg/m2 IV day 1, Cyclophosphamide 600 mg/m2 IV day 1; Cycled every 21 days for 6 cycles
Drug: Dose Dense AC or FEC100 followed by paclitaxel or docetaxel chemotherapy
  • Doxorubicin 60 mg/m2 IV day 1, Cyclophosphamide 600 mg/m2 IV day 1, Cycled every 14 days for 4 cycles, OR
  • 5-Fluorouracil 500 mg/m2 IV day 1, Epirubicin 100 mg/m2 IV day 1, Cyclophosphamide 500 mg/m2 IV day 1; Cycled every 21 days for 3 cycles
  • Followed by Paclitaxel 80 mg/m2 by 1 h IV infusion weekly for 12 weeks, OR Docetaxel 100mg/m2 IV day 1 cycled every 21 days for 3 or 4 cycles
Active Comparator: Her2 positive patients
The proposed neo-adjuvant chemotherapy regimens for HER2 negative patients is TCH chemotherapy.
Drug: TCH chemotherapy
  • Docetaxel 75 mg/m2 IV day 1, followed by Carboplatin AUC 6 IV day 1; Cycled every 21 days for 6 cycles
  • Trastuzumab initial dose of 4 mg/kg over 90 minute IV infusion, then 2 mg/kg over 30 minute IV infusion weekly for 52 weeks, OR initial dose of 8 mg/kg over 90 minutes IV infusion, then 6 mg/kg over 30-90 minutes IV infusion every three weeks for 52 weeks.

Detailed Description:

Patients with suspected primary breast cancer on mammography and clinical examination will be assessed for eligibility by having a needle core biopsy to confirm invasive carcinoma.

A fresh unfixed tumor specimen, incisional or core biopsy will be sent to Agendia to determine the MammaPrint risk profile, the BluePrint molecular subtyping profile, the TargetPrint ER, PR and HER2 single gene readout, the 56-geneTheraPrint Research Gene Panel and the additional genes as measured on the whole genome (44k) array.

Surgical Protocol:

  1. Determination of nodal status:

    • For clinically node-negative patients: Axillary ultra sound, followed by Sentinel Lymph Node (SLN) biopsy
    • For clinically node-positive patients: ultra sound-guided Fine Needle Aspirate (FNA), followed by core biopsy
  2. Neo-adjuvant chemotherapy
  3. Definitive surgery:

    • For node-positive patients: lumpectomy, repeat SLN biopsy, Axillary Lymph Node Dissection (ALND)
    • For node-negative patients: lumpectomy, repeat SLN biopsy (optional), no ALND

Response will be measured by pathological Complete Responce (pCR) and by centrally assessed Residual Cancer Burden (RCB).
