Pertuzumab in Combination With Herceptin and Vinorelbine for Metastatic or HER2-Positive Breast Cancer (UW12012)
A Two-cohort, Open-label, Multicenter Phase II Trial Assessing the Efficacy and Safety of Pertuzumab Given in Combination With Trastuzumab and Vinorelbine in First Line Patients With HER2-positive Advanced (Metastatic or Locally Advanced) Breast Cancer.
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Temporarily On Hold Breast Cancer Phase II UW12012

This two-cohort, open-label, multicenter, phase II study will assess the safety and efficacy of pertuzumab given in combination with Herceptin (trastuzumab) and vinorelbine in first line in patients with metastatic or locally advanced HER2-positive breast cancer. Patients will receive pertuzumab 840 mg and Herceptin 8 mg/kg administered sequentially as separate iv infusions on Day 1 of Cycle 1. From Cycle 2 onwards, patients will receive pertuzumab 420 mg and Herceptin 6 mg/kg, administered either sequentially as separate iv infusions (Cohort 1) or together in one infusion bag (Cohort 2) every 3 weeks. Vinorelbine will be administered at 25 mg/m2 iv on Days 1 and 8 of Cycle 1, and at 30-35 mg/m2 on Days 1 and 8 of each following 3-week cycle. Anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs, or withdrawal of consent or death.
