Study Summary

This is a prospective phase 2 study to use Functional Precision Oncology (FPO) to predict, prevent and treat early metastatic recurrence in subjects with HR-low/Her2 negative or triple negative breast cancer.

Eligible Conditions

  • Relapse
  • Recurrent Breast Cancer

Study Objectives

2 Primary · 7 Secondary · Reporting Duration: up to 3 years

Data will be assessed at 3-years from the time of definitive surgery.
Compare the recurrence rates between patients whose tumors successfully engrafted in mice (PDX+) vs. not (PDX-)
up to 3 years
Calculate PFS ratios of 2nd line FPO-informed: 1st line "uninformed" therapy as a preliminary measure of efficacy
Correlation between MHCII Immune Activation Score (high vs. low and as a continuous variable) and tumor engraftment (PDX+/-) and clinical outcomes (relapse-free and overall survival).
Correlation between methylated ctDNA measurements as assessed using the MethylPatch assay pretreatment, pre- and post surgery, with PDX engraftment data (+/-) and clinical outcomes (relapse-free and overall survival)
Correlation between tumor engraftment (PDX+/-) and relapse-free survival, overall survival, and response to preoperative chemotherapy and treatment response as assessed on the Residual Cancer Burden scale
Proportion of cases where any type of patient derived models are successfully generated and clinically actionable therapies are identified by functional precision oncology.
Proportion of cases where clinically actionable therapies were identified by FPO.
determine the feasibility of returning FPO results to inform the selection of 2nd line therapy after recurrence
frequency with which therapeutic responses in PDX, PDxO, and/or PDO align with the clinical, radiographic, and pathologic responses observed in the matched patient
