Testing a Vaccine for Treating or Preventing Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Treatment study for people with stage 2 or 3 triple-negative breast cancer at high risk for recurrence.

Testing a Vaccine for Treating or Preventing Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Researchers are studying the affects of this breast cancer vaccine on the immune system in two groups of people:

  • For people diagnosed with stage 2 or stage 3 triple-negative breast cancer at high risk for recurrence.
  • People with an inherited mutation in BRCA1, BRCA2, or PALB2 who are planning to undergo a risk-reducing mastectomy.

Nipple Sparing Mastectomy With Immediate Implant-Based Reconstruction for Women With Early-Stage Breast Cancer

Nipple sparing mastectomy with reconstruction for women with early-stage breast cancer

A Randomized Study of Robotic-Assisted Nipple Sparing Mastectomy vs. Standard Surgery Nipple Sparing Mastectomy for Early Stage Breast Cancer

This study will compare robotic-assisted nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM) to standard surgery NSM for women with early-stage breast cancer. Eligible women will be randomly placed into one of two groups and either undergo the robotic-assisted procedure or undergo the standard of care open surgery for NSM. Participants will be followed for 5 years.

Treating Early-Stage Breast Cancer  with a PARP Inhibitor (Niraparib) and Immunotherapy (Dostarlimab) in People with  a BRCA or PALB2 Mutation

Treatment before surgery for people with early-stage breast cancer & a BRCA1, BRCA2 or PALB2 mutation

Treating Early-Stage HER2-Negative Breast Cancer with a PARP Inhibitor (Niraparib) and Immunotherapy (Dostarlimab) in People with a BRCA or PALB2 Mutation

This study will look at how well the drugs Niraparib (a PARP inhibitor) and Dostarlimab (an immunotherapy) treat early-stage breast cancer in people with an inherited BRCA1, BRCA2 or PALB2 mutation.

RADCOMP: A Study at the Heart of Breast Cancer Treatment


Pragmatic Randomized Trial of Proton vs. Photon Therapy for Patients with Non-Metastatic Breast Cancer Receiving Comprehensive nodal Radiation: A Radiotherapy Comparative Effectiveness Trial

The RadComp Study, short for Radiotherapy Comparative Effectiveness, is a nationwide clinical study comparing two FDA approved radiation therapies for the treatment of breast cancer, PHoton Therapy vs. PRoton Therapy. With any radiation treatment to the breast, the heart may be exposed to radiation potentially resulting in heart problems in the future. Both Photon and Proton therapies are FDA approved; however, to date doctors do not know which therapy is better or worse in terms of reducing side effects and promoting length and quality of life after radiation.

We hope to learn: The effectiveness of proton vs. photon therapy in reducing major cardiovascular events and how treatment affects patient’s quality of life, such as financial burden, fatigue, and anxiety. These objectives were chosen as study priorities by breast cancer patients themselves.
