Advanced Breast Cancer Treatment Study

Clinical Trial Title: 
Study assessing the efficacy and safety of alpelisib plus fulvestrant in men and postmenopausal women with advanced breast cancer which progressed on or after aromatase inhibitor treatment.
Clinical Trial Protocol ID: 
15081102
Clinical Trial Investigator Name: 
Ruta D. Rao, MD
Clinical Trial Protocol Description: 

A phase III randomized double-blind, placebo controlled study of alpelisib in combination with fulvestrant for men and postmenopausal women with hormone receptor positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer which progressed on or after aromatase inhibitor treatment.

The purpose of this study is to learn whether alpelisib, when added to a marketed standard treatment (fulvestrant), helps to reduce the growth of breast cancer cells in people with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer.
