Trial Information

Docetaxel (NSC-628503) And Vinorelbine (NSC-608210) Plus Filgrastim (NSC-614629) With Weekly Trastuzumab (NSC-688097) For HER-2 Positive, Stage IV Breast Cancer


- Determine the 1-year survival of women with HER2-positive stage IV breast cancer
treated with trastuzumab (Herceptin), docetaxel, and vinorelbine with filgrastim
(G-CSF) support.

- Determine the response rate (complete and partial, confirmed and unconfirmed) in the
subset of patients with measurable disease treated with this regimen.

- Determine the progression-free survival of patients treated with this regimen.

- Determine the qualitative and quantitative toxic effects of this regimen in these

- Obtain tissue blocks for the determination of predictors of response (e.g.,
beta-tubulin mutations) to microtubule interacting agents in this patient population
and for other future studies.

OUTLINE: This is a pilot, multicenter study.

Patients receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1, filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously on
days 2-21, vinorelbine IV over 6-10 minutes on days 8 and 15, and trastuzumab (Herceptin) IV
over 30-90 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of
disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. If docetaxel and vinorelbine are discontinued
due to unacceptable toxicity, patients may continue to receive trastuzumab. If trastuzumab
is discontinued due to unacceptable toxicity, patients may continue to receive chemotherapy
with G-CSF support.

Patients are followed every 6 months for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 90 patients will be accrued for this study within 18-22.5
