Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
Multiparametric MRI for Assessing Breast Cancer Response to Anti-HER2 Therapy
This is a single institution, observational research study in which women are observed using DWI/DCE MRI imaging before and after receiving neoadjuvant anti-HER2 therapy.
This is not a treatment trial. Patients will be treated according to the plan developed by their medical oncologists. Only patients planning to receive anti-HER2 therapy as part of planned systemic therapy will be eligible for this imaging study. Patients and their referring oncologist will be asked to start the anti-HER2 therapy 2-3 weeks prior to surgery and after the pre-therapy MRI.
Women at least 18 years of age.
Have a new diagnosis of invasive breast cancer, clinical stage I - III, HER2 positive.
Planning to undergo surgical resection plus adjuvant therapy to include an anti-HER2 agent.
Have tissue block available for review of experimental markers.
Be a candidate for MRI imaging.
Be willing to comply with scheduled visits required for the trial.
Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document.
Recent therapy for breast cancer prior to baseline MRI.
Subjects may not receive other investigational agents during the study window for imaging.
