Abstract:

This multi-institutional prospective cohort study aimed to examine the efficacy and safety of 500 mg of Fulvestrant (Ful-500) in postmenopausal Estrogen Receptor (ER)-positive Advanced or Recurrent Metastatic Breast Cancer (AMBC). Patients with second, third or fourth-line Endocrine Therapy (ET) were recruited. From August 2013 to June 2016, participants were administered Ful500 as two 5-mL intramuscular injections on days 0, 14, and 28 and thereafter, every 28 days until disease progression. The primary endpoint was Progression-Free Survival (PFS). Overall Response Rate (ORR), Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR), and safety were the secondary endpoints. For PFS, the Kaplan-Meier method was used to estimate the survival curve with a threshold Median Survival Time (MST) of 3 months and an expected MST of 5.5 months, at a one-sided significance level of 0.05 and power of 0.8. All statistical tests were two-sided. A 5% error was used in the PFS analysis. Of the 51 enrolled patients, 46 (second-line: 31, third-line: 10, fourth-line: 5) were analyzed. The median PFS duration was 8.5 months (95% confidence interval [CI], [5.6-14.5]). Furthermore, the 90% CI of the mean PFS was 5.6-14.5 months. The lower 90% CI value was higher than the median PFS (3 months) threshold, signifying that Ful-500 use was effective in these patients. The ORR and CBR values were 6.5% (3/46) and 71.7% (33/46), respectively. Adverse events, all grades 1-2, were observed in 15 cases (32.6%). Ful-500 use was effective and safe in second to fourth-line ET for ER-positive postmenopausal AMBC.
