Platinum Based Chemotherapy or Capecitabine in Treating Patients with Residual Triple-Negative Basal-Like Breast Cancer following Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy
This randomized phase III trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin (platinum based chemotherapy) works compared to capecitabine in treating patients with remaining (residual) basal-like triple-negative breast cancer following chemotherapy after surgery (neoadjuvant). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin and 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. It is not yet known whether cisplatin or carboplatin is more effective than capecitabine in treating patients with residual triple negative basal-like breast cancer.
Capecitabine and Radiation Therapy after Surgery in Treating Patients with Non-Metastatic Invasive Breast cancer
Multiple Cancer Types
This phase I trial studies how well capecitabine and radiation therapy after surgery work in treating patients with invasive breast cancer that has not spread to other places in the body. 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. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving capecitabine and radiation therapy together may kill more tumor cells in patients with invasive breast cancer compared to capecitabine or radiation therapy alone.
