Breast Cancer - Ductal Carcinoma In Situ
Trial Name: Name of Trial: A Phase III Clinical Trial Comparing Trastuzumab Given Concurrently with Radiation Therapy and Radiation Therapy Alone for Women with HER2-Positive Ductal Carcinoma In Situ Resected by Lumpectomy.
Protocol ID: NSABP B-43
Enrollment: Enrollment: · About 2000 women will take part in this study.
Taking part in this study may or may not make your health better. While doctors hope that adding trastuzumab to radiation therapy will be more useful in the treatment of HER2-positive DCIS compared to radiation therapy without trastuzumab, there is no proof of this yet. We do know that the information from this study will help doctors learn more about trastuzuamb given with radiation therapy as a treatment for HER2-positive DCIS. This information could help future breast cancer patients.
