When Will there be a BCIRG 006 Update?

Hello everyone, I am wondering if any of you know when an update to the BCIRG 006 study will be issued? It is a couple of years now since the last report and there should be more data available. Thanks, Mary Ann

Hi, I'm bumping this up again to see if anyone is aware of an upcoming update to this trial. It is such an important trial for those of us who did TCH. I would like to see what the data looks like two more years out. Mary Ann

I will watch for an update at this year's SABCS when I am there...

I found this article about it from Jan 2007, which is packed with info and here is a quote from DRs Osborne and Slamon about the trials:

Kent Osborne, MD, of Baylor College of Medicine, commented on Dr. Slamon's statement. "I will take this conclusion one step further," he said. "Now there is a question of whether any kind of chemotherapy offers anything to a truly endocrine-responsive tumor. As your curves with all these chemotherapies come together, one wonders if the chemotherapy is adding nothing, and all we are seeing is the effect of Herceptin."
Dr. Slamon responded, "This question is right on target, and is one that we need to ask and answer. I think it will be a challenge to enroll patients in such a trial, but this is the direction in which we now need to go."

Jan'04~
Taxotere/Adria/Cytoxan x 6, NED, no Rads, Tamox. 1 year, Arimadex 3 mo., NED 14 mo.
Sept'05~
micro mets lungs/chest nodes/underarm node, Switched to Aromasin, T/C/H x 7, NED 6 months - Herceptin only
Aug'06~
micro mets chest nodes, & bone spot @ C3 neck, Added Taxol to Herceptin
Feb'07~ Genetic testing, BRCA 1&2 neg

Apr'07~
MRI - two 9mm brain mets & 5 punctates, new left chest met, & small increase of bone spot C3 neck, Stopped Aromasin
May'07~
Started Tykerb/Xeloda, no WBR for now
June'07~
MRI - stable brain mets, no new mets, 9mm spots less enhanced, CA15.3 down 45.5 to 9.3 in 10 wks, Ty/Xel working magic!
Aug'07~
MRI - brain mets shrunk half, NO NEW BRAIN METS!!, TMs stable @ 9.2
Oct'07~
PET/CT & MRI show NED
Apr'08~
scans still show NED in the head, small bone spot on right iliac crest (rear pelvic bone)
Sept'08~
MRI shows activity in brain mets, completed 5 fractions/5 consecutive days of IMRT to zap the pesky buggers
Oct'08~
dropped Xeloda, switched to tri-weekly Herceptin in combo with Tykerb, extend to tri-monthly Zometa infusion
Dec'08~
Brain MRI- 4 spots reduced to punctate size, large spot shrunk by 3mm, CT of torso clear/pelvis spot stable
June'09~
new 3-4mm left cerrebellar spot zapped with IMRT targeted rads
Sept'09~
new 6mm & 1 cm spots in pituitary/optic chiasm area. Rx= 25 days of 3D conformal fractionated targeted IMRT to the tumors.
Oct'09~
25 days of low dose 3D conformal fractionated targeted IMRT to the bone mets spot on rt. iliac crest that have been watching for 2 years. Added daily Aromasin back into treatment regimen.
Apr'10~ Brain MRI clear! But, see new small spot on adrenal gland. Change from Aromasin back to Tamoxifen.
June'10~ Tumor markers (CA15.3) dropped from 37 to 23 after one month on Tamoxifen. Continue to monitor adrenal gland spot. Remain on Tykerb/Herceptin/Tamoxifen.
Nov'10~ Radiate positive mediastinal node that was pressing on recurrent laryngeal nerve, causing paralyzed larynx and a funny voice.
Jan'11~ MRI shows possible activity or perhaps just scar tissue/necrotic increase on 3 previously treated brain spots and a pituitary spot. 5 days of IMRT on 4 spots.
Feb'11~ Enrolled in T-DM1 EAP in Denver, first treatment March 25, 2011.
Mar'11~ Finally started T-DM1 EAP in Denver at Rocky Mountain Cancer Center/Rose on Mar. 25... hallelujah.

I am a new patient of Dr. Osborne's... just started Taxol/Herceptin with him for 12 weeks. Sounds like he is in high demand!

I am a BIG fan of Dr. Osborne! I think he is on the cusp of really important findings... I will definitely be attending everything at SABCS that he is speaking at.
