Brief Summary:

This is a phase II, multicenter, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group, placebo-controlled, study to evaluate LF-PB versus placebo in female patients with brest cancer who are undergoing breast surgery with axillary lymphnode dissection.

Recruited patients will be randomly assigned to one of the following treatment groups: Placebo, LF-PB 10 mg, LF-PB 20 mg and LF-PB 30 mg.

Mode of administration is single intramuscular (IM) injection so the treatments arms are as follows:

Placebo: 2 injections of placebo LF-PB 10 mg: 2 injections = placebo + 10 mg LF-PB 20 mg: 2 injections = placebo + 20 mg LF-PB 30 mg: 2 injections = 10 mg + 20 mg

The study will randomize a total of 120 patients (30 per arm) in about 10 Italian Sites.

    daily volume of lymph collected from the drain

  2. number of complications related to lymphorrhea [ Time Frame: 12 weeks after surgery ]
    effect of LF-PB 10, 20 and 30 mg on complications related to lymphorrhea
