This study is for patients with HER2-positive breast cancer that has metastasized. The study is being done to see if the patient's breast cancer can be stabilized and the time that the patient lives with this breast cancer can be lengthened by adding a new drug to the usual combination of drugs.
The purpose of the study is to test the safety and effectiveness of the study drug, pembrolizumab (MK-3475) with certain types of chemotherapy and endocrine therapy, as well as, to see how well the subject's body handles the study drug.
If subject's meet the criteria, they will be assigned to 1 of 2 groups by chance, similar to flipping a coin, in order to decide which study treatment they will receive. Group A will receive the study drug, pembrolizumab, with certain types of chemotherapy and endocrine therapy. Group B will receive placebo, with certain types of chemotherapy and endocrine therapy. Pembrolizumab or placebo will be given by vein about once every 3 weeks.
This is a long-term study, if subject's agree to participate, they will be in the study for approximately 12 years.
This study is for breast cancer patients who are making decisions about breast cancer surgery. This study is being done to learn about how patients and their surgeons make decisions about breast cancer surgery.
This study is for subjects who have been diagnosed with cancer and will be receiving a drug called everolimus as part of your usual care. The purpose of this study is to see if treating patients with dexamethasone mouthwash at the start of cancer treatment will lower the chance of getting painful mouth sores.
This study is for patients who are 70 years old or over and have been recently diagnosed with estrogen receptor positive, HER2 negative metastatic breast cancer. The purpose of this study is to find out the side effects that the standard, FDA-approved combination treatment of letrozole or fulvestrant and palbociclib has on patients 70 years old and over.
This is an open-label, nonrandomized, dose escalation and dose expansion, safety, efficacy, PK and PD evaluation study of SAR439859 administered orally as monotherapy, then in combination with palbociclib. The study will last approximately 26 months, and participation in the study may last 4 to 8 weeks or longer. The length of participation in this study will depend on how well subjects tolerate the study drug and the condition of their disease.
Outcomes following a breast cancer diagnosis are different by race and ethnicity with African American women having poorer survival compared to Caucasian women. Research has shown that differences in personal health factors can contribute to breast cancer outcomes and explain racial differences. This study will examine how personal-level factors relating to biological, psychological, and physiological issues play a role in outcomes among African American breast cancer survivors.
This study is for patients with breast cancer who have enrolled or are planning to enroll to the Alliance study A011502, "Aspirin for Breast Cancer Study" (or ABC study).
This study is for patients who have been diagnosed with stage 2 or stage 3 breast cancer and their doctor has recommended that they receive radiation therapy after mastectomy to prevent your breast cancer from coming back. The purpose of this study is to determine whether a short-course radiation therapy option (3 to 4 weeks) after mastectomy is as safe and effective in the setting of breast reconstruction as the usual 5 to 6 week treatment course.
This study is for patients with metastatic breast cancer who are receiving therapy that may cause heart problems. The purpose of this study is to test whether carvedilol can reduce the occurrence of heart problems during their cancer treatment.
