Randomized, Open Label, Clinical Study of the Targeted Therapy, Palbociclib, to Treat Metastatic Breast Cancer


The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that the combination of palbociclib with anti-HER2 therapy plus endocrine therapy is superior to anti-HER2-based therapy plus endocrine therapy alone in improving the outcomes of subjects with hormone receptor-positive, HER2+ metastatic breast cancer.

Palbociclib in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Rb Positive Advanced Solid Tumors, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or Histiocytic Disorders with Activating Alterations in Cell Cycle Genes (A Pediatric MATCH Treatment Trial)


This phase II Pediatric MATCH trial studies how well palbociclib works in treating patients with Rb positive solid tumors, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or histiocytic disorders with activating alterations (mutations) in cell cycle genes that have spread to other places in the body and have come back or do not respond to treatment. Palbociclib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Fulvestrant, Palbociclib, and pan-FGFR Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor JNJ-42756493 in Treating Patients with Estrogen Receptor Positive, HER2 Negative, and FGFR Amplified Stage IV Breast Cancer That Is Recurrent or Cannot Be Removed by Surgery


This phase Ib trial studies the side effects and best dose of pan-FGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor JNJ-42756493 when given together with fulvestrant and palbociclib in treating patients with estrogen receptor positive, HER2 negative, and FGFR amplified stage IV breast cancer that has come back or cannot be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fulvestrant, 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. Palbociclib and pan-FGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor JNJ-42756493 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving fulvestrant, palbociclib, and pan-FGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor JNJ-42756493 may work better in treating patients with breast cancer.
