A Randomized Phase III Post-Operative Trial of Platinum Based Chemotherapy vs. Capecitabine in Patients with Residual Triple-Negative Breast Cancer following Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy
This randomized phase III trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin (platinum based
chemotherapy) works compared to capecitabine in treating patients with remaining (residual)
basal-like triple-negative breast cancer following chemotherapy after surgery (neoadjuvant).
Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin and capecitabine, 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. It is not yet known whether cisplatin
or carboplatin is more effective than capecitabine in treating patients with residual triple
negative basal-like breast cancer.
