A Randomized, Double-Blind, Phase III Trial of Paclitaxel/Trastuzumab/Pertuzumab With Atezolizumab or Placebo in First-Line HER2-Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer.
This randomized phase III trial studies how well paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab with or without atezolizumab works in treating patients with breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, 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. Immunotherapy with trastuzumab, pertuzumab, and atezolizumab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not yet known whether giving paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab with or without atezolizumab may kill more tumor cells.
• Histologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the breast with locally recurrent, unresectable disease or metastatic disease.
• The tumor specimen obtained at the time of diagnosis of locally recurrent or metastatic disease must have been determined to be HER2-positive based on central testing according to American Society of Clinical Oncology/College of American Pathologists (ASCO/CAP) guidelines.
• Localized palliative radiation therapy is allowed for symptom management if completed greater than or equal to 14 days prior to randomization.
• Patients must have imaging of the chest/abdomen/pelvis, preferably with a computed tomography (CT) scan, and a bone scan within 4 weeks prior to randomization.
• MRI of the brain (or contrast CT scan of the brain if patients are unable to undergo MRI) must be obtained in patients with symptoms suggesting possible central nervous system (CNS) metastatic disease; neuroimaging is recommended but not required in asymptomatic patients.
