100 mg of Doxycycline orally twice a day for 12 weeks.
Participants will be asked to take 100 mg of Doxycycline by mouth twice a day for 12 weeks.
- palliative benefit [ Time Frame: Weeks 4, 8 and 12 from starting study treatment ]The primary objective of this prospective study is to assess the palliative benefit (reflected through changes in validated pain scores and the bone resorption marker serum C-telopeptide) of adding doxycycline 100mg PO BID daily for 3 months to standard bone-targeted (i.e. intravenous bisphosphonate or subcutaneous denosumab) therapy in women with breast cancer and bone metastases.
- changes to bone formation markers [ Time Frame: Weeks 4, 8 and 12 from starting study treatment ]Assess the effect of adding doxycycline for 3 months to standard bone-targeted (i.e. intravenous bisphosphonate or subcutaneous denosumab) therapy on the bone formation markers P1NP and Bone Specific Alkaline Phosphatase.
- changes in biomarkers [ Time Frame: Weeks 4, 8 and 12 from the start of study treatment ]To determine whether levels of FAK, MMPs or TIMPs correlate with palliative benefit, bone turnover, or symptom response in patients treated with doxycycline in combination with bone-targeted (i.e. intravenous bisphosphonate or subcutaneous denosumab) as compared to bone-targeted agent alone. This will be determined following a comparison of levels in baseline specimens (when patients are on bone-targeted agent alone) with end of study specimens (when patients are receiving both doxycycline and bone-targeted agents).
