A011202: Node Positive Breast Cancer and the effects of Axillary Lymph Node Dissection Vs. Axillary Radiation

This randomized phase III trial studies axillary lymph node dissection to see how well it works compared to axillary radiation therapy in treating patients with node-positive breast cancer treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery. Lymph node dissection may remove cancer cells that have spread to nearby lymph nodes in patients with breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. This study will evaluate whether radiation therapy is as effective as lymph node dissection.

EA1131: Breast Cancer and the Effects of Platinum Based Chemotherapy

This randomized phase III trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin (platinum based chemotherapy) works compared to observation in treating patients with remaining (residual) basal-like triple-negative breast cancer following chemotherapy after surgery (neoadjuvant). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether cisplatin or carboplatin is more effective than observation in treating patients with residual triple negative basal-like breast cancer.
