CBRS17061 / EA1131 / Michelle ShayneResearch Question:
What are the good and bad effects of getting more treatment with capecitabine (i.e.
one of the usual approaches) compared to getting more treatment with a platinum-based
chemotherapy (cisplatin or carboplatin) after surgery?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester Medical Center
This randomized phase III trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin (platinum
based chemotherapy) works compared to capecitabine in treating patients with remaining
(residual) basal-like triple-negative breast cancer following chemotherapy after surgery
(neoadjuvant). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin and capecitabine,
work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells,
by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet
known whether cisplatin or carboplatin is more effective than capecitabine in treating
patients with residual triple negative basal-like breast cancer.
