Condition(s) targeted: Carcinoma, Metastatic Breast

Intervention: CPG 7909 (Drug); Herceptin® (Drug); CPG 7909 (Drug); Herceptin® (Drug); CPG 7909 (Drug); Herceptin® (Drug); CPG 7909 (Drug); Herceptin® (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Pfizer

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Harold Burstein, M.D., Ph.D., Principal Investigator, Affiliation: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine if the combination of CPG 7909 and Herceptin is safe and effective in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer. RATIONALE: There is preclinical data that supports the hypothesis that CPG 7909 may potentiate the action of Herceptin. This Phase I/II study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combination treatment of CPG 7909 and Herceptin in patients with metastatic breast cancer who have previously been treated with Herceptin and chemotherapy. SCHEDULE: Patients will receive CPG 7909 weekly for up to six months.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase I/II Open Label, Multi-Center Study For The Evaluation Of The Combination Of CpG 7909 And Herceptin In Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

Phase I: To evaluate the safety, tolerability and and MTD of several dose levels of CPG 7909 of CPG 7909 in combination with the standard Herceptin® treatment in patients with metastatic breast cancer

Phase II: Evaluate tumor response and safety of CPG 7909 in combination with Herceptin® in patients with metastatic breast cancer

Secondary outcome:

Phase I: To evaluate tumor response, duration of response, time to disease progression, and survival time

Phase II: To evaluate duration of response, time to disease progression, and survival time

Detailed description: Phase II part of study not initiated because the development plan modified the route of administration to subcutaneous injection.
