Vinorelbine in Treating Older Women With Stage IV Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of vinorelbine in treating older women who have stage IV breast cancer.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Trial of Oral Vinorelbine for the Treatment of Metastatic Breast Cancer in Patients >65 Years of Age: A Trial of Efficacy, Toxicity, and Patients' Perceived Preference for Oral Therapy|
|Study Start Date:||November 2001|
- Determine the objective response rate in elderly women with stage IV breast cancer treated with oral vinorelbine.
- Determine the toxicity profile of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the time to progression in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the quality of life of patients treated with this drug.
- Assess individual variation in responses (toxicity and/or activity), pharmacokinetic parameters, and/or biologic correlates due to genetic differences in enzymes involved in the transport, metabolism, and/or mechanism of action of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral vinorelbine once weekly. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline and then after completion of the second course.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 5 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-35 patients will be accrued for this study within 7-18 months.
