SCCA Clinical Studies: Phase 1 Program

PARP Inhibitor ABT-888 with Cisplatin and Vinorelbine (7161)
Phase I Study of ABT-888 (Veliparib) in Combination With Cisplatin and Vinorelbine (Navelbine) for Patients With Advanced Triple Negative Breast Cancer and/or BRCA-Mutation Associated Breast Cancer
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Advanced Breast Cancer Phase I NCT01104259

RATIONALE: ABT-888 may stop the growth of some tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and vinorelbine ditartrate, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing them or stopping them from dividing. Giving ABT-888 together with combination chemotherapy may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of ABT-888 when given together with cisplatin and vinorelbine ditartrate in treating patients with recurrent and/or metastatic breast cancer.
