Hormone Receptor Positive Breast Cancer clinical trials at UCSF

8 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • XL092 as Single-Agent and Combination Therapy in Subjects With Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a Phase 1, open-label, dose-escalation and expansion study, evaluating the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), preliminary antitumor activity, and effect on biomarkers of XL092 administered alone, in combination with atezolizumab, and in combination with avelumab to subjects with advanced solid tumors.

  • FDG-PET/CT to Assess Response of Bone-Dominant Metastatic Breast Cancer, FEATURE Study

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies how well FDG-PET/CT works in assessing the response of patients with breast cancer that has spread to the bones or mostly to the bones (bone-dominant metastatic breast cancer). Diagnostic procedures, such as FDG-PET/CT, may work better in measuring breast cancer activity before and after treatment compared to other standard imaging tests.

  • Additional Support Program Via Text Messaging and Telephone-Based Counseling for Breast Cancer Patients Receiving Hormonal Therapy

    Sorry, currently not accepting new patients, but might later

    This phase III trial compares an additional support program (text message reminders and/or telephone-based counseling) with usual care in making sure breast cancer patients take their endocrine therapy medication as prescribed (medication adherence). Medication adherence is how well patients take the medication as prescribed by their doctors, and good medical adherence is when patients take medications correctly. Poor medication adherence has been shown to be a serious barrier to effective treatment for hormone receptor positive breast cancer patients. Adding text message reminders and/or telephone-based counseling to usual care may increase the number of days that patients take their endocrine therapy medication as prescribed.

  • Letrozole in Treating Postmenopausal Women Who Have Received Hormone Therapy for Hormone Receptor-Positive Breast Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    RATIONALE: Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using letrozole may fight breast cancer by lowering the amount of estrogen the body makes. It is not yet known whether letrozole is more effective than a placebo in treating patients with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying letrozole to see how well it works compared with a placebo in treating postmenopausal women who have received hormone therapy for hormone receptor-positive breast cancer.

  • Targeted Therapy, Palbociclib, to Treat Metastatic Breast Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that the combination of palbociclib with anti-HER2 therapy plus endocrine therapy is superior to anti-HER2-based therapy plus endocrine therapy alone in improving the outcomes of subjects with hormone receptor-positive, HER2+ metastatic breast cancer.

  • Suppression of Ovarian Function With Either Tamoxifen or Exemestane Compared With Tamoxifen Alone in Treating Premenopausal Women With Hormone-Responsive Breast Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    RATIONALE: Estrogen can stimulate the growth of breast tumor cells. Ovarian function suppression combined with hormone therapy using tamoxifen or exemestane may fight breast cancer by reducing the production of estrogen. It is not yet known whether suppression of ovarian function plus either tamoxifen or exemestane is more effective than tamoxifen alone in preventing the recurrence of hormone-responsive breast cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial studies ovarian suppression with either tamoxifen or exemestane to see how well they work compared to tamoxifen alone in treating premenopausal women who have undergone surgery for hormone-responsive breast cancer.

  • T-VEC With Chemotherapy or Endocrine Therapy in Treating Participants With HER2- Negative Breast Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase Ib trials studies the side effects and how well talimogene laherparepvec works when given together with chemotherapy or endocrine therapy in treating patients with breast cancer that does not express the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) protein and has spread to other places in the body (metastatic), cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable), or has come back (recurrent). Biological therapies, such as talimogene laherparepvec, use substances made from living organisms that may attack specific tumor cells and stop them from growing or kill them. Chemotherapy drugs, such as nab-paclitaxel, gemcitabine, and carboplatin, 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. Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Drugs used as endocrine therapy, such as letrozole, anastrozole, exemestane, tamoxifen or fulvestrant, may lessen the amount of estrogen made by the body or may may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking estrogen from connecting to the cancer cells. Giving talimogene laherparepvec with chemotherapy or endocrine therapy may work better in treating patients with HER2-negative breast cancer.

  • H3B-6545, in Women With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Estrogen Receptor-positive, HER2 Negative Breast Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The primary purpose of phase 1 portion of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of H3B-6545 in women with locally advanced or metastatic estrogen receptor (ER)-positive, human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer. The primary purpose of phase 2 portion of this study is to estimate the efficacy of H3B-6545 in terms of best overall response rate, duration of response (DoR), clinical benefit rate (CBR), disease control rate (DCR), progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS) in all participants with ER-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer and in those with and without ER alpha mutation (including a clonal estrogen receptor 1 gene [ESR1] Y537S mutation).
