Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for breast cancer treatment. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 26-50 of 444

  • Proton Beam Radiation Therapy or Photon Beam Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients with Non-Metastatic Breast Cancer

    This randomized phase III trial studies proton beam radiation therapy (proton therapy) compared to photon beam radiation therapy (photon therapy) in treating patients with breast cancer that has not spread to other places in the body (non-metastatic). Radiation therapy is an important treatment for breast cancer, however, radiation goes to other organs, such as heart, causing heart problems. Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy that uses multiple beams of protons (tiny particles with a positive charge) to kill tumor cells without damaging normal tissue. Photon therapy is also a type of radiation therapy that uses multiple x-ray beams. The radiation dose is delivered at the surface of the body and goes into the tumor and through the body which may damage normal tissue. It is not yet known whether proton therapy is more effective than photon therapy in treating patients with non-metastatic breast cancer without causing heart damage.

  • Capecitabine in Treating Patients with Metastatic Breast Cancer or Advanced / Metastatic Gastrointestinal Cancers

    This randomized phase II trial studies the side effects of capecitabine and how well it works when it is given dose-dense, fixed-dose as compared to standard dose in treating patients with breast cancer or gastrointestinal cancer that has spread from where it started to other places in the body or gastrointestinal cancer that has spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as capecitabine, 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.

  • Neratinib with or without Fulvestrant in Metastatic HER2-Negative but HER2 Mutant Breast Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well neratinib with or without fulvestrant works in treating patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer that carries HER2 gene mutations and has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic). Neratinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Estrogen can stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using fulvestrant may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells. Giving neratinib with fulvestrant may provide a more effective treatment for patients with this type of breast cancer.

  • Study of LOXO-101 (Larotrectinib) in Subjects With NTRK Fusion Positive Solid Tumors (NAVIGATE)

    Phase II, multi-center, open-label study of patients with advanced solid tumors harboring a fusion of NTRK1, NTRK2 or NTRK3.

  • A Phase 2 Study of Cediranib in Combination with Olaparib in Advanced Solid Tumors

    This phase II trial studies cediranib maleate in combination with olaparib in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other parts of the body or cannot be removed by surgery, including breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer. Cediranib maleate and olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cediranib maleate may also block the flow of oxygen to the tumor, and may help make the tumor more sensitive to olaparib.

  • Veliparib, Paclitaxel, and Carboplatin in Treating Patients with Solid Tumors That Are Metastatic or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery and Liver or Kidney Dysfunction

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of veliparib when given together with paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating patients with solid tumors that are metastatic or cannot be removed by surgery and liver or kidney dysfunction. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel 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. Giving veliparib together with paclitaxel and carboplatin may kill more tumor cells.

  • Comparison of Operative to Monitoring and Endocrine Therapy (COMET) Trial For Low Risk DCIS

    This study looks at the risks and benefits of active surveillance (AS) compared to guideline concordant care (GCC) in the setting of a pragmatic prospective randomized trial for low risk DCIS. Our overarching hypothesis is that management of low-risk Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) using an AS approach does not yield inferior cancer or quality of life outcomes compared to GCC.

  • Tamoxifen Citrate or Letrozole with or without Palbociclib in Treating Patients with Stage I-III Invasive Breast Cancer before Surgery

    This phase II clinical trial studies how well tamoxifen citrate or letrozole with or without palbociclib work in treating patients with stage I-III invasive breast cancer before surgery. Antihormone therapies, such as tamoxifen citrate and letrozole, may lessen the amount of estrogen made by the body. Palbociclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether giving tamoxifen citrate or letrozole with or without palbociclib may work better in treating patients with stage I-III invasive breast cancer.

  • Enzalutamide in Treating Patients with Stage I-III Androgen Receptor Positive Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well enzalutamide works in treating patients with stage I-III androgen receptor positive triple-negative breast cancer. Androgen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Antihormone therapy, such as enzalutamide may lessen the amount of androgen made by the body.

  • Study of the Glutaminase Inhibitor CB-839 in Solid Tumors

    Many tumor cells, in contrast to normal cells, have been shown to require the amino acid glutamine to produce energy for growth and survival. To exploit the dependence of tumors on glutamine, CB-839, a potent and selective inhibitor of the first enzyme in glutamine utilization, glutaminase, will be tested in this Phase 1 study in patients with solid tumors. This study is an open-label Phase 1 evaluation of CB-839 in patients with advanced solid tumors. The study will be conducted in 2 parts. Part 1 is a dose escalation study enrolling patients with locally-advanced, metastatic and / or refractory solid tumors to receive CB-839 capsules orally twice or three times daily. In Part 2, patients with each of the following diseases will be enrolled: A) Triple-Negative Breast Cancer, B) Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (adenocarcinoma), C) Renal Cell Cancer, D) Mesothelioma, E) Fumarate hydratase (FH)-deficient tumors, F) Succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)-deficient gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), G) SDH-deficient non-GIST tumors, H) tumors harboring mutations in isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH1) or IDH2, and I) cMyc mutation tumors. As an extension of Parts 1 & 2, patients will be treated with CB-839 in combination with standard chemotherapy. Combination groups include: Pac-CB, CBE, CB-Erl, CBD, and CB-Cabo. Pac-CB: patients with locally-advanced or metastatic TNBC will be treated with paclitaxel and CB-839. CBE: patients with advanced clear cell RCC or papillary RCC will be treated with everolimus in combination with CB-839. CB-Erl: patients with advanced NSCLC lacking the T790M EGFR mutation will be treated with erlotinib and CB-839. CBD: patients with NSCLC harboring KRAS mutation will be treated with docetaxel and CB-839. CB-Cabo: patients with histologically confirmed diagnosis of locally-advanced, inoperable or metastatic RCC treated with cabozantinib in combination with CB-839. All patients will be assessed for safety, pharmacokinetics (plasma concentration of drug), pharmacodynamics (inhibition of glutaminase), biomarkers (biochemical markers that may predict responsiveness in later studies), and tumor response.
