Randomized Phase III Trial Evaluating the Role of Weight Loss in Adjuvant Treatment of Overweight and Obese Women with Early Breast Cancer
Contact Treatment Inclusion Criteria Exclusion Criteria Informed Consent

Courtney Frederick, Tel: 203-737-7992; Fax: 203-785-4069 e-mail:courtney.frederick@yale.edu


This study has two study groups.

• Group 1 will get a Health Education program that is designed to give women more information about their breast cancer, as well as general information about their general health. Women who are assigned to this group will receive a subscription to a Health magazine and they will receive mailings twice per year with brochures that provide information about breast cancer and health issues. Women will also receive a study newsletter twice per year, and will be able to take part in webinars or teleconferences twice per year that provide information about new updates in breast cancer. Finally, they will get greeting cards on the anniversary of joining the study, holidays, etc.

• Group 2 will get the Health Education program described above and will also get a 2-year weight loss program. This program will be designed to help women lose about 10% of their starting weight by decreasing the calories they eat and by increasing their exercise. Exercise goals will increase slowly over the study, with an overall goal of getting all women exercising at least 150 minutes per week over time. The weight loss program will be provided through a series of 42 telephone calls over 2 years. Each call will take 20-30 minutes. Each woman will be assigned a health coach who will work with her over the 2-year program. Women will need to track the food they eat and the exercise they do each day, especially in the early stages of the program. This will take approximately 15-20 minutes per day. Coaches will track progress using computer programs to help set goals over the 2-year program. Telephone calls will occur more often at the start of the study and become less frequent over time. Women in the weight loss group will also receive:

o A weight loss workbook (available in print and on line)

o An activity sensor (such as a FitBit) to help keep track of exercise

o A cookbook

o A journal and access to a study website to track diet, weight and exercise

o A scale, food scale and measuring cups (if needed)

o Optional text messages to help women meet exercise and diet goals

o Optional pre-packaged shakes, bars or portion-controlled entrees to replace meals

A computer will by chance assign you to one of study groups described above. This is called randomization. This is done by chance because no one knows if one study group is better or worse than the others.


1. Subjects must have histologically confirmed invasive breast cancer and registration must occur within 12 months after the first histologic diagnosis of invasive breast cancer.

• A core biopsy interpreted as invasive cancer meets this criterion; if no core biopsy is performed, the date of first histologic diagnosis will be the date of first surgical procedure that identifies invasive cancer (biopsy, lumpectomy or mastectomy).

• Neoadjuvant subjects should have no evidence of clinical T4 disease prior to chemotherapy and surgery. See eligible cTNM classifications below.

• Bilateral breast carcinoma is allowed provided diagnoses are synchronous – that is, within 3 months of one another – and at least one of the two breast carcinomas meet


2. Her-2 negative, defined as:

• ISH ratio of < 2.0 (if performed)

• IHC staining of 0-2+ (if performed)

• Deemed to not be a candidate for Her-2 directed therapy

3. Eligible TNM Stages include:

• ER and PR negative (defined as < 1 % staining for ER and PR by IHC) T2 or T3 NO, T0-3 N1-3

• ER and/or PR positive (defined as ≥ 1% staining for ER and/or PR on IHC): T0-3N1-3 or T3N0

The eligibility of neo-adjuvant subjects is assessed on the basis of cTNM. The same eligible TNM combinations apply


4. No history of invasive breast cancer in 5 years prior to study registration other than the current diagnosis (prior DCIS at any time is acceptable).


5. Patients must have had a bilateral mammogram within 12 months prior to registration, unless the initial surgery was a total mastectomy, in which case only a mammogram of the remaining breast is required. (Subjects with bilateral total mastectomies do not require imaging).


6. Investigations, including chest X-ray or CT chest, bone scan (with radiographs of suspicious areas) and abdominal ultrasound or liver scan or CT abdomen have been performed between the first histologic diagnosis and the time of registration as detailed below.

• Chest X-Ray, 2 view (or Chest CT, or PET/CT) is mandatory

• Bone scans (with x-rays of abnormal areas) are required only if ALT, AST or Alkaline Phosphatase is elevated or if there are signs or symptoms of metastatic disease

• Abdominal imaging is required only if ALT, AST or Alkaline Phosphatase is elevated or if there are signs or symptoms of metastatic disease

7. All adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy (at the discretion of the treating physician) and surgery completed at least 21 days prior to registration. Concomitant radiation, biologic therapy, hormonal therapy, and bisphosphonates are acceptable.


8. Surgical margins must be clear of invasive carcinoma. If there is microscopic residual ductal in situ disease present at lumpectomy or total mastectomy margins, further excision is highly recommended. If further excision is not undertaken, the subject may still be entered on study, provided that in addition to breast or chest wall irradiation, a boost to the tumor bed is delivered. In situ lobular disease at the margin is acceptable.


9. All subjects (both adjuvant and neo-adjuvant) must have sentinel lymph node biopsy and/or axillary lymph node dissection. Sentinel lymph node biopsy alone is allowed in the following instances:

a) Sentinel lymph node biopsy is negative: pN0

b) Sentinel lymph node biopsy is positive for isolated tumor cells only: pN0 (i+) c) Clinically node negative, T1-2 tumors with sentinel lymph node biopsy positive in < 2 lymph nodes without matted nodes and undergoing breast conserving surgery and tangential whole breast irradiation, or undergoing mastectomy and chest wall irradiation.


10. All women who undergo breast conserving therapy must receive concomitant radiotherapy. Radiation after mastectomy is to be administered according to prespecified institutional guidelines. Radiation can be administered either prior to or during protocol treatment.

11. Patients with hormone receptor positive breast cancer as defined above must receive at least 5 years of adjuvant hormonal therapy in the form of tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor, alone or in combination with ovarian suppression. (NOTE: for patients with ER and PR staining in less than 5% of cells, hormonal therapy for at least 5 years is strongly recommended but not required). Hormonal therapy can be initiated prior to or during protocol therapy

12. Participants must be women

13. Age ≥ 18 years

14. ECOG Performance Status 0 or 1

15. No history of other malignancy within the past 4 years, except for malignancies with a >95% likelihood of cure (e.g. non-melanoma skin cancer, papillary thyroid cancer, in situ cervical cancer).

16. No diabetes mellitus currently treated with insulin or sulfonylureas.

17. No history of serious digestive and/or absorptive problems, including inflammatory bowel disease and chronic diarrhea that preclude adherence to the study diet.

18. No history of severe cardiovascular, respiratory or musculoskeletal disease or joint problems that preclude moderate physical activity. Examples would include unstable angina, recent myocardial infarction, oxygen-dependent pulmonary disease, and osteoarthritis requiring imminent joint replacement. Moderate arthritis that does not preclude physical activity is not a reason for ineligibility.

19. No prior bariatric surgery or planning to undergo this procedure within the next 2 years after study registration.

20. No comorbid conditions that would cause life expectancy of less than 5 years.

21. No history of psychiatric disorders that would preclude participation in the study intervention (e.g. untreated major depression or psychosis, substance abuse, severe personality disorder) or prevent the patient from giving informed consent.

22. BMI ≥27 kg/m2 documented within 56 days prior to study registration.

23. Self-reported ability to walk at least 2 blocks (at any pace).

24. Not participating in another weight loss, physical activity or dietary intervention clinical trial. Co-enrollment in trials involving pharmacologic therapy is allowed. Participants in both arms are also allowed to pursue weight loss and physical activity programs on their own, as long as these programs are not provided as part of a clinical trial.

25. Able to read and comprehend English.

Eligibility is restricted to individuals who can comprehend and read English given that participation in the study will require the ability to read lifestyle intervention materials and communicate with a coach through 42 phone calls over 2 years. Given the logistical and financial difficulties of supporting the intervention in multiple languages, Alliance A011401 Version Date 04/19/2016 21 participation will be limited to individuals speaking English at this time. The study team plans to make the intervention available in additional languages sometime after study activation. This eligibility criterion will be modified with an amendment at that time.

Study Group 2: A normal saline dose (placebo) once every 28 days for a maximum of six injections through the vein, plus exemestane and everolimus therapy as prescribed by your doctor.

1. Have provided written informed consent. Subjects must be able to understand and be

willing to sign the written informed consent. A signed ICF must be appropriately

obtained prior to the conduct of any study-specific procedure.

2. Documentation of histological or cytological confirmation of ER+ and HER2 negative adenocarcinoma of the breast must be available. HER2 status should be determined by an accredited/Ministry of Health approved laboratory by immunohistochemistry (IHC), fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), chromogenic in situ hybridization (CISH) or other validated in situ hybridization (ISH) assay for detection of HER2 gene expression.

3. Tumors (from either primary or metastatic sites) must be ER+ defined as ≥10% positive tumor nuclei in the analyzed sample. ER+/ progesterone receptor positive (PR+), ER+/ progesterone receptor negative (PR-) subjects are eligible whereas estrogen receptor negative (ER-)/PR+ and ER-/PR- disease will not be eligible.

an LH-RH agonist/antagonist must have a plasma/serum estradiol assay of

<20 pg/mL at screening within 7 days prior to randomization. These subjects

must also have a negative pregnancy test at screening and agree to use an

adequate method of contraception as recommended by their treating physicians (please refer to Section 8.1.2)

• Post-menopausal status is defined either by

CT/MRI done as part of the standard of practice within 3 weeks prior to randomization and standard of care bone scans done within 3 weeks prior to randomization are acceptable. FDG PET scan, if performed as part of standard of care imaging, can be used as an adjunct to CT/MRI in line with RECIST 1.1 guidelines. If FDG PET/CT scan, the CT component of the scan can be used for tumor measurements only if the site can document that the CT is of identical diagnostic quality to a diagnostic CT. FDG PET/CT or NaF PET3 /CT scan is acceptable as an alternative to technetium- 99m bone scintigraphy if it is the standard of care at the institution, provided the same bone imaging modality is used throughout the study.
