Description

This pilot trial will determine whether retroviral-transduced peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPCs) can be selected and expanded in vivo after non-ablative chemotherapy in patients with metastatic breast cancer. It will also examine the feasibility of administering induction high-dose therapy with antimetabolites, followed with consolidation using high-dose single alkylating agent therapy and finally intensification therapy with sequential cycles of very high doses of the natural product breast cancer chemotherapeutic agents (paclitaxel followed by doxorubicin). Patients will receive i...

Eligibility criteria

  • Patients with stage IV breast cancer are eligible provided they have not received chemotherapy for metastatic disease. Patients with stage IV breast cancer who have received prior adjuvant chemotherapy are eligible.
  • Patients who have received prior doxorubicin therapy will be eligible. Patients who have received a lifetime doxorubicin dose greater than 550 mg/m(2) or who have an initial MUGA ejection fraction of between 40% and less than 50% will receive vinblastine instead of doxorubicin.
  • Age greater than or equal to 18.
  • ECOG performance status of 0-2.
  • Adequate cardiac function as defined by an LVEF greater than or equal to 40% on MUGA scan or an echocardiogram which demonstrates normal LV function.
  • Adequate hematologic function with neutrophils greater than 1,200/mm(3) and platelets less than 100,000/mm(3) unless due to metastatic bone marrow involvement.
  • Adequate renal and hepatic function with creatinine less than 2.0 mg/dl, bilirubin less than 1.8 mg/dl, and hepatic transaminases less than 2 times the upper limit of normal unless due to metastatic cancer.
  • A 12-24 hour creatinine clearance greater than 50 ml/min.
  • No prior chemotherapy or radiation therapy within 3 weeks before starting protocol therapy and patients must have recovered from any toxicity from any prior therapy.
