Clinical Trials Using Pertuzumab
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Pertuzumab. 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.
Study of Alpelisib (BYL719) in Combination With Trastuzumab and Pertuzumab as Maintenance Therapy in Patients With HER2-positive Advanced Breast Cancer With a PIK3CA Mutation
The purpose of this two parts multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase III study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of alpelisib compared to alpelisib matching-placebo in combination with trastuzumab and pertuzumab as maintenance treatment of patients with HER2-positive advanced breast cancer whose tumor harbors a PIK3CA mutation following induction therapy with a taxane in combination with trastuzumab and pertuzumab. Part 1 is the open-label, safety run-in part of the study, designed to confirm the recommended phase 3 dose (RP3D) dose of alpelisib in combination with trastuzumab and pertuzumab. Following Part 1, Part 2 will be initiated, which is the randomized, Phase III part of the study.

Concurrent WOKVAC Vaccination, Chemotherapy, and HER2-Targeted Monoclonal Antibody Therapy before Surgery for the Treatment of Patients with Breast Cancer
This phase II trial studies the immunologic response and side effects of using the WOKVAC vaccine in combination with chemotherapy and HER2-targeted monoclonal antibody therapy before surgery in treating patients with breast cancer. Vaccines like WOKVAC are made from tumor-associated antigens which may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Chemotherapy drugs, such as paclitaxel, 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. Trastuzumab and pertuzumab are forms of targeted therapy because they work by attaching themselves to specific molecules (receptors) on the surface of tumor cells, known as HER2 receptors. When trastuzumab and pertuzumab attach to HER2 receptors, the signals that tell the cells to grow are blocked and the tumor cell may be marked for destruction by the body's immune system. Giving the WOKVAC vaccine at the same time (concurrently) with paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab before surgery may kill more tumor cells.

Paclitaxel and Carboplatin before Surgery in Treating Nigerian Women with Stage IIA-IIIC Breast Cancer
This phase II trial studies how well paclitaxel works with carboplatin before surgery in treating Nigerian women with stage IIA-IIIC breast cancer before surgery. 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.
