1B-14-3 A Randomized, Double-Blind, Phase 2 Study of Ruxolitinib or Placebo in Combination With Capecitabine in Subjects With Advanced or Metastatic HER2-Negative Breast Cancer


This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial comparing the overall survival of women with advanced or metastatic HER2-negative breast cancer who receive treatment with capecitabine in combination with ruxolitinib versus those who receive treatment with capecitabine alone.


Phase 2 - takes the treatment one step further, assessing the activity of a particular therapy in a disease, often building upon leads from the Phase I trial. While patients are generally required to be previously untreated, participation in a Phase II trial doesn't usually preclude the patient from getting the standard treatment after they've received the investigational agent. At best they are allowed to get a new drug they wouldn't be able to get otherwise that may turn out to be better for their disease.
