Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
A Study of High-Dose Vit D Versus Standard of Care Vit D Supplementation
This is a randomized study evaluating the effects of early intensive vitamin D supplementation compared to standard of care vitamin D supplementation on bone health over an 18 month period.
This is a randomized, open-label study designed to evaluate the effect of high dose vitamin D versus standard of care vitamin D supplementation on bone health and arthralgias. The randomization will be stratified by hormone receptor status (positive versus negative). The primary objective is to compare the effect of high dose vitamin D to the current standard vitamin D treatment administration algorithm on bone health, as measured by percent change from baseline in bone mineral density (g/cm2), in young women with non-metastatic breast cancer who receive systemic therapy.
Subject must meet all of the following applicable inclusion criteria to participate in this study:
Written informed consent and HIPAA authorization for release of personal health information. NOTE: HIPAA authorization may be included in the informed consent or obtained separately.
Age; 45 years at the time of consent
Histological or cytological confirmation of breast cancer clinical or pathologic stages 0-III
Patient has been recommended to initiate systemic therapy for breast cancer. It is preferable for patient to enroll prior to systemic therapy initiation. However, enrollment will be allowed if systemic therapy has been initiated within 4 weeks prior to enrollment (randomization).
Note: Patients who undergo only surgery and/or radiotherapy alone would not qualify for the study.
Systemic therapy for breast cancer is planned
As determined by the enrolling physician, ability of the subject to understand and comply with study procedures for the entire length of the study
Previous vitamin D supplementation allowed, as long as patient is agreeable to stop previous dosing at the time of trial enrollment, to comply with trial procedures including a baseline 25(OH)D level, and is otherwise determined to be appropriate for enrollment
Subjects meeting any of the criteria below may not participate in the study:
Uncontrolled intercurrent illness/medical condition or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements as determined by the Investigator
Patients will undergo breast surgery and/or radiotherapy alone without planned neoadjuvant and/or adjuvant anti-cancer drug therapy.
Baseline 25(OH)D level <10ng/mL or >80ng/mL
Baseline serum corrected calcium level of >10.3mg/dL
Bone mineral density less than the expected range for age on baseline DEXA scan (defined as Z-score = -2.0)
Breast cancer with distant metastasis
History of previous breast cancer
Postmenopausal, as confirmed by the lack of menses >/=12 months and/or ovarian function laboratories (estradiol, FSH) consistent with menopause (if any of two values outside of menopausal range and subject had menses within 12 months, subject would be considered perimenopausal or premenopausal and therefore eligible for enrollment)
Pregnancy or lactation
History of bone disease, including Paget's bone disease or osteomalacia
Concurrent rheumatoid or other inflammatory arthritis
Concurrent or prior treatment with bisphosphonates
Use of oral corticosteroids within the last 30 days prior to randomization
Concurrent treatment for thyroid deficiency
Currently receiving treatment for tuberculosis, or planning to receive treatment for tuberculosis during breast cancer treatments
History of another primary cancer that required systemic treatment within the last 5 years
Any of the following kidney diseases at the time of randomization: active chronic kidney disease >/= stage 3, history of kidney stones, sarcoidosis
Gastrointestinal disease that would limit the absorption of pill therapy (i.e. celiac disease, gastric bypass surgery)
