PURPOSE Preclinical studies demonstrate a link between overexpression of HER-2/neu and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) activity. To explore the possibility that COX-2 is a therapeutic target, we conducted a phase II study of celecoxib, a selective COX-2 inhibitor, and trastuzumab in patients with HER-2/neu-overexpressing metastatic breast cancer that had(More)
PURPOSE Bevacizumab confers benefits in metastatic breast cancer but may be more effective as adjuvant therapy. We evaluated the cardiac safety of bevacizumab plus dose-dense doxorubicin-cyclophosphamide (ddAC) → nanoparticle albumin-bound (nab)-paclitaxel in human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 normal early-stage breast cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN(More)
PURPOSE We conducted a randomized Phase II trial to directly compare toxicity, feasibility, and delivered dose intensities of two adjuvant dose-intensive regimens containing doxorubicin, paclitaxel, and cyclophosphamide for patients with node-positive breast carcinoma. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Forty-two patients with resected breast carcinoma involving one or(More)
Purpose: Bevacizumab confers benefits in metastatic breast cancer but may be more effective as adjuvant therapy. We evaluated the cardiac safety of bevacizumab plus dose-dense doxorubicin–cyclophosphamide (ddAC) ! nanoparticle albumin–bound (nab)-paclitaxel in human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 normal early-stage breast cancer.
