A Phase I Pharmacokinetic and Randomized Phase II Trial of Neoadjuvant Treatment With Anastrozole Plus AZD0530 in Postmenopausal Patients With Hormone Receptor Positive Breast Cancer
The purpose of this study is to test the tolerability and efficacy or AZD0530 when used together with Anastrozole in patients with ER+ and/or PR+ postmenopausal breast cancer. AZD0530 (also known as saracatinib), is an investigational drug which acts in a different way than Anastrozole or related drugs do. It blocks the action of an enzyme called SRC (pronounced ?sark?). By doing this, AZD0530 also blocks some of the signals which are needed for the tumor to grow, spread, or become resistant to standard treatments such as Anastrozole. In this research study, AZD0530 is used before the time of primary surgery to remove the tumor. It is intended to improve and to aid the effectiveness of the standard hormonal therapy (Anastrozole) and surgery. The term ?neoadjuvant? is commonly used to refer to treatment before the primary treatment of surgery.
