Vectibix, Paraplatin & Taxol Before Surgery For Early Stage Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Women's Triple-Negative First-Line Study: A Phase II Trial of Panitumumab, Carboplatin and Paclitaxel (PaCT) in Patients With Localized Triple-Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) With Tumors Predicted Insensitive to Standard Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Scientific Title

Purpose
To see if giving three types of cancer drugs at the same time before surgery will shrink triple negative tumors.
Who is this for?
Women with stage I, stage II, or stage II triple-negative (ER-, PR-,HER2-) breast cancer but have not yet had surgery. You must also have a type of tumor that is not likely to get smaller with the standard type of chemotherapy usually given before surgery.    Full eligibility criteria
