Breast Cancer Clinical Trial

Breast/Cyclosporin A/TNBC (Triple Negative Breast Cancer)

Summary

This will be a single arm, non-randomized, pre-surgical clinical trial of women with newly diagnosed triple negative breast cancer with high g-H2Ax (gamma H2AX antibodies) comparing changes in biomarkers from a diagnostic core needle biopsy to surgical pathology specimen or repeat core needle biopsy.

Full Description

Patients that are able to be in the study will be asked if they would like to be in the study on their first visit with their medical doctor. Lab work including a complete blood count and complete metabolic panel will be drawn at this time as part of their standard of care work-up. If patients choose to be in the study, they will then sign consent and then have the study drug dispensed on day 1 after a blood sample has being collected. No extra physician visit will be needed to join in the study. Patients will then take the study drug, CsA, until the day before surgery. Mastectomy (breast removal) or lumpectomy (lump removal) is the standard of care for early-stage breast cancer.

Surgery takes about three weeks to schedule, therefore we expect that patient's will take the study medication for between 14 and 30 days. There will be no delays in the standard of care surgery. There will be weekly visits and/or phone calls on Days 8, 15 and 21-30 to get feedback on any adverse effects and how the subject is dealing with changing the dosage, with any changes made to treatment as needed. The patients will stop taking the Cyclosporin (CsA) the day before surgery. Within two weeks after surgery, after the patient has been off drug, they will be questioned, and an assessment of adverse events will be done.

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Participants may be female or male who are 18 years old or older. Ability to consent to treatment - patients or their legally authorized representative must be informed of the investigational nature of this study and must sign and give written informed consent in accordance with institutional and federal guidelines.
Previously untreated invasive breast cancer determined by a core needle biopsy.
Prior, unrelated, breast cancer is allowed.
Stage I-III breast cancer will be included that are Estrogen receptor and or progesterone receptor 0-10%, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negative defined as per American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)/College of American Pathologists (CAP guidelines). HER2 of 2+ on Immunohistochemistry (IHC) should have a ratio of less than 2.0 on fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) testing to be considered HER2 negative
Patients must have low or negative RAD51 immunohistochemistry (defined as median <5 foci per nucleus after measuring at least 200 cells)
Patients must be able to take oral medications. Patients may not have any impairment of gastrointestinal function or gastrointestinal disease that may significantly alter the absorption of the study drug.
Females of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine beta human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) pregnancy test result within 14 days prior to the first dose of CsA.
Women of childbearing potential and men should have an adequate mode of contraception to be eligible for this trial.
Patients must be eligible for surgical resection of their breast cancer or repeat biopsy after completing treatment.
Patients must have a complete history and physical examination within 30 days prior to registration.
Patients must have a performance status of Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) 0, 1, or 2.
Tissue block of initial biopsy specimen is available.
Patient may not be concurrently enrolled in another investigational drug treatment study.

Exclusion Criteria:

Renal impairment defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate (EGFR) <30
Hepatic impairment as judged by clinical investigator or bilirubin >2
As judged by the investigator, severe uncontrolled concurrent medical conditions, psychiatric illness, or social condition that would limit compliance with study requirements
Known hypersensitivity to CsA
Current use of calcium channel blockers, antifungals, azithromycin, clarithromycin, erythromycin, methylprednisolone, allopurinol, amiodarone, metoclopramide, bromocriptine, colchicine, oral contraceptives, nafcillin, rifampin, phenytoin, octreotide, phenobarbital, carbamazepine, St John's Wort, HIV protease inhibitors
Inflammatory breast cancer
Uncontrolled hypertension
Pregnant or breast-feeding women. As there have been no well-controlled studies conducted with pregnant women to determine the effect of CsA on the fetus. However, there have been clinical reports of congenital malformations associated with the use of the drug.
Patients who will receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy for their triple negative breast cancer are not eligible for this clinical trial.
