Phase II Studies of Two Different Schedules of Dasatinib (NSC-732517) in Bone Metastasis Predominant Metastatic Breast Cancer


- Compare the progression-free survival of patients with stage IV bone
metastasis-predominant breast cancer treated with 1 of 2 treatment schedules of

- Compare the response rate (complete and partial, confirmed and unconfirmed) in patients
treated with these regimens.

- Compare the MUC-1 antigen response rate (CA 15-3 or CA 27-29) in patients treated with
these regimens.

- Compare the circulating tumor cell response rate in patients treated with these

- Compare the anti-osteoclast activity, as measured by changes in bone turnover markers,
in patients treated with these regimens.

- Compare the frequency and severity of toxicities of these regimens in these patients.

- Compare the pain profiles of these patients and explore changes over time.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to
concurrent trastuzumab (Herceptin®) treatment (yes vs no). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2
treatment arms.

- Arm I: Patients receive oral dasatinib once daily.

- Arm II: Patients receive oral dasatinib twice daily. In both treatment arms, treatment
continues for at least 24 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable

Blood samples are acquired from patients once weekly in weeks 1, 4, 8, 16, and 24. Samples
are analyzed for tumor markers, circulating tumor cells, and bone markers.

Patients complete a self-reported brief pain inventory questionnaire at baseline and once in
weeks 8, 16, and 24.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3-6 months for up to 2

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 80 patients will be accrued for this study.

Inclusion Criteria


- Diagnosis of breast carcinoma meeting the following criteria:

- Stage IV disease

- Bone metastasis-predominant disease, defined as the presence of ≥ 1 bone
metastasis with or without nonbone (visceral or soft tissue) disease where the
number of bone metastases is at least the number of measurable visceral target

- Visceral disease that does not cause a reduction in ECOG performance status

documented by 2 consecutive measurements taken ≥ 14 days apart with the most
recent measurement being within the past 42 days

- These measurements need not be consecutive, and the prior measurement could
have been months to years prior to the current measurement if the marker is
considered by the investigator to reflect disease progression

- Estrogen receptor- and/or progesterone receptor-positive disease must have
progressed on ≥ 1 hormonal therapy in the metastatic setting


- Male or female

- Menopausal status not specified

- Zubrod performance status 0-2

- Ejection fraction ≥ 50% by MUGA or 2-dimensional echocardiogram with no significant
abnormalities within the past 12 weeks for patients on trastuzumab

- No uncontrolled concurrent condition that would preclude the ability to take oral
medication, including the following:

- Nausea

- Vomiting

- Diarrhea

- Lack of physical integrity of the upper gastrointestinal tract

completion of study therapy

Type of Study:


Study Design:

Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Progression-free survival, with disease progression defined as an increase in measurable disease, the appearance of new lesions, and/or clinical deterioration related to disease progression

Outcome Description:

Time from date of registration to date of first documentation of progression or symptomatic deterioration, or death due to any cause. Patients last known to be alive and progression-free are censored at last date of contact.

Outcome Time Frame:

Disease assessed every 8 weeks for up to 2 years until progression.
