ECOG/ACRIN-EA1181: (CompassHER2-pCR): Preoperative THP and postoperative HP in patients who achieve a pathologic complete response.

The purpose of this study is to test whether it is safe to eliminate additional chemotherapy after surgery in patients with HER2-positive breast cancer who have no remaining cancer at surgery, after receiving a single chemotherapy drug (for most patients, paclitaxel), with Herceptin (trastuzumab) and Perjeta (pertuzumab) for 12 weeks before surgery.

Johns Hopkins-J15212: Phase II Trial of Palbociclib with Fulvestrant in individuals with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer who have progressed on treatment with Palbociclib and an aromatase inhibitor.

The purpose of this study is to look at the role of continuing palbociclib treatment in combination with another type of hormonal therapy after disease progression.

NRG- BR004: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Phase III Trial of Paclitaxel/Trastuzumab/Pertuzumab With Atezolizumab or Placebo in First-Line HER2-Positive Metastatic Breast

The purpose of this study is to compare the usual treatment plus placebo to the usual treatment plus atezolizumab.

NRG-BR005: This phase II trial studies how well biopsy of breast after chemotherapy works in predicting pathologic response in patients with stage II- IIIA breast cancer undergoing breast-conserving surgery. Tumor tissue collected from biopsy before surgery may help to check if chemotherapy destroyed the breast cancer cells and may also be compared to the tumor removed during surgery to check if they are the same.

The purpose of this study is to look at tumor tissue collected from a biopsy done before breast surgery to check if the chemotherapy that patients received destroyed their breast cancer cells.

NRG-CCTG MA.39: A Randomized Trial of Regional Radiotherapy in Biomarker Low-Risk Node-Positive Breast Cancer

The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of not giving regional radiotherapy to using regional radiotherapy.

Alliance- A221505: A randomized trial of hypofractionated post-mastectomy radiation with breast reconstruction.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a short course radiation therapy option (3 to 4 weeks) after mastectomy is as safe and effective in the setting of breast reconstruction as the usual 5-to-6-week treatment course.

NRG-BR003: A randomized Phase III trial of adjuvant therapy comparing doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide followed by weekly paclitaxel with or without carboplatin for node-positive or high-risk node-negative triple-negative invasive breast cancer.

The purpose of this study is to compare the good and bad effects of the chemotherapy drug carboplatin given with the usual chemotherapy drugs after surgery, compared to the usual chemotherapy drugs given without carboplatin.

NSABP-B51/RTOG 1304: A randomized phase III clinical trial evaluating post-mastectomy chest wall and regional nodal XRT and post-lumpectomy regional nodal XRT in patients with positive axillary nodes before neoadjuvant chemotherapy who convert to pathologically negative axillary nodes after neoadjuvant chemotherapy

The purpose of this clinical trial is to study women who have cancer cells in their lymph nodes at the time that the breast cancer is diagnosed and then have chemotherapy before surgery that clears the cancer cells from the lymph nodes. Following surgery, radiation to the breast and lymph nodes will be evaluated against radiation to the breast only.

SWOG-S1418/BR006: A randomized phase III trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of MK-3475 (pembrolizumab) as adjuvant therapy for triple receptor-negative breast cancer with > 1cm residual invasive cancer or positive lymph nodes (YPN+) after neoadjuvant

The purpose of this study is to compare the usual approach (i.e., no more treatment or additional post-operative chemotherapy), to any effects, good and/or bad, of the experimental drug MK-3475 (also called pembrolizumab) after surgery.
