Study the Role of Stem Cell in Curing Drug Induced Liver Injury in Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) (MBC)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT01231022
Recruitment Status : Completed

Brief Summary:
The investigators want to know the role of Peripheral hematopoietic stem cell infusion in avoiding Drug Induced Liver Injury,and also try to research SNPs genotyping associated with Drug Induced Liver Injury.

Condition or disease
Breast Neoplasms Neoplasm Metastasis

Detailed Description:
  1. The researcher investigate the incidence and the cause of Drug Induced Liver Injury in MBC.
  2. Patients having a complete clinical history and physical examination, receive routine chemotherapy.
  3. Venous blood Sample(4 ml)is collected before and after each cycle according to the planning time.
  4. Genomic DNA,RNA and upper serum is isolated. ELISA、rt-PCR or PCR-direct sequencing is used to detect the protein or gene expression associated with liver function.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Protective effection of peripheral hematopoietic stem cell infusion for DILI [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Patients receiving PHSC infusion after chemotherapy will have lower incidence of DILI. PHSC infusion may improve the liver function.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. SNPs genotyping associated with Drug Induced Liver Injury [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Some SNPs will be find to associated with DILI.

  2. Change of cytokines [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Changes of cytokines in periphral blood related with liver function with be observed.

Biospecimen Retention:   None Retained
