Clinical Trial DRUG MDV3100-11

Title
A Phase 2, Single-Arm, Open-Label, Multicenter Study of the Clinical Activity and Safety of Enzalutamide in Patients With Advanced, Androgen Receptor-Positive, Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
Principal Investigator
William Gradishar
Details
  • Status: Accepting New Patients
  • Study Type: Therapeutic, Treatment
  • Protocol No:.DRUG MDV3100-11
Purpose
The study will help doctors decide if enzalutamide may be a potential treatment for women with breast cancer, including triple-negative breast cancer, which expresses the androgen receptor. This study is also being done to test the safety and tolerability of enzalutamide, meaning, how taking enzalutamide may affect a patient's health or make her feel.
Overview
Enzalutamide is known as an androgen receptor inhibitor, which means that it blocks activity of the hormone testosterone. In breast cancer, inhibiting the androgen receptor may possibly slow or stop tumor growth. This is the second study using enzalutamide in the treatment of women with breast cancer.
Eligibility
Some of the eligibility criteria include:
  • Participants must be women at least 18 years of age.
  • Participants must have advanced androgen receptor-positive, triple-negative breast cancer.
Note: This is only a partial list of eligibility criteria. Please contact the Lurie Cancer Center for complete screening information if you are interested in this clinical trial.
Description of Treatment
Study participants will take enzalutamide once per day by mouth during the treatment period, which starts on study Day 1. The treatment period will end when the doctor decides that the participant should stop taking enzalutamide, the participants start a new cancer therapy or clinical trial, or if the participant wants to stop taking enzalutamide.
