INFORM is a study for patients newly diagnosed with breast cancer who have a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. The study is evaluating whether the chemotherapy drug Cisplatin is better than currently used standard chemotherapy drugs (Cyclophosphamide/Doxorubicin) for treating patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer due to an inherited mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2.
This is a neoadjuvant study which means that patients will receive the chemotherapy before having surgery to remove the remaining tumor. Only patients who have not had their breast cancer tumor removed yet will be eligible for this study.
This is a randomized, open-label, 2-arm treatment study.
