Brief Summary:
This is a multicenter, phase I/II trial of anastrozole, palbociclib, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab is proposed as first-line therapy in metastatic hormone receptor-positive, HER2-positive breast cancer patients. In this phase I/II clinical trial, the researchers aim to establish the safety and efficacy of dual HER2 therapy in combination with palbociclib and anastrozole, which represents a novel and all biologic approach to the treatment of HR+, HER2+ metastatic breast cancer. Additionally, the researchers aim to examine potential biomarkers of response to palbociclib including cyclin D1, cyclin E1 and cyclin E2 expression levels, cdk 2, 4, and 6 levels, phosphorylated retinoblastoma expression and p16 levels. The researchers intend to use RNA sequencing to assess for other predictors of response in an unbiased manner to see if this correlates with inhibition of Ki-67 and phosphorylated retinoblastoma expression as well as evaluate for potential mechanisms of resistance.

Dose I: 100 mg orally daily, day 1 to day 21, then 7 days off in a 28 day cycle (Phase 1 only) Dose II: 125 mg orally daily, day 1 to day 21, then 7 days off in a 28 day cycle

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose-Limiting Toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: up to 3 months ]

    The dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) for palbociclib when administered in combination with anastrozole, trastuzumab and pertuzumab. A DLT will be defined as:

    • Grade 3 or 4 non-hematologic toxicity
    • Grade 3 neutropenia lasting greater than 21 days
    • Grade 3 or 4 neutropenia with neutropenic fever or
    • Grade 4 hematologic toxicity events experienced within the first 4 weeks (1 cycle) of study treatment. These will be assessed via the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI's CTCAE) v4.0 toxicity criteria.

  2. Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: up to 3 months ]
    The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) for palbociclib when administered in combination with anastrozole, trastuzumab and pertuzumab. If > 33 % of patients experience a dose limiting toxicity (DLT) at any dose level, the dose level below that level will be considered the MTD. Or if the highest level has been reached and ≤ 33% of patients have experienced dose limiting toxicity (DLT), that will be considered the MTD.

  3. Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) [ Time Frame: average of 6 months ]
    CBR will be measured by the percentage of patients whose cancer shrinks or remains stable over the duration of the study. This will be measured as the sum of complete response, partial response, and stable disease for greater than or equal to 6 months.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The time from the start of treatment until confirmed disease progression or death from any cause, whichever occurs first.

  2. Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    incidence of adverse events as graded by the NCI CTCAE v4.0
