About

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects the preoperative combination therapies of herceptin/navelbine or herceptin/taxotere/carboplatin will have on patients with early stage HER-2 positive breast cancer.

Full description

Before starting treatment, a clip will be placed via catheter into the tumor bed, so the surgeon can locate the site of the tumor. During clip placement, tissue biopsy will be taken of the tumor. One to two weeks after the first dose of herceptin another biopsy will be performed. Patients will be placed into one of 2 arms. Arm 1 receives 12 weeks of herceptin and navelbine. Arm 2 receives 4 cycles of taxotere/carboplatin/herceptin. Arm 2 participants will also receive neulasta (growth factor support) on day 2 of each cycle. Phase A of Arm 1 is one dose of herceptin followed by an MRI of the affected breast and a second biopsy 1-2 weeks following this dose. Phase B of Arm 1 begins on week 3 and ends on week 14 and involves weekly injections of herceptin and navelbine. Surgery will take place a minimum of 3 weeks after the patients last dose of herceptin and navelbine. Phase A of Arm 2 is one dose of herceptin followed by an MRI of the affected breast and second biopsy 1-2 weeks following this dose. Phase B of Arm 2 begins on week 3 and ends on week 14 and involves herceptin weekly, taxotere and carboplatin every 3 weeks. Surgery will take place a minimum of 3 weeks after the patients last dose of herceptin, taxotere and carboplatin. Blood tests will be performed every 3 weeks during pre-operative treatment and every 6 months after surgery.
