Study Type

  • Study Type: Observational
  • Study Design
    • Time Perspective: Prospective
  • Study Primary Completion Date: April 3, 2028

Detailed Description

Patients diagnosed with HR+/HER2- locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer indicated by their treating physicians for first line endocrine-based palbociclib combination therapy and who meet eligibility criteria will be invited to participate in this study. The key objectives of this study are to describe clinical, scientific and patient reported outcomes for patients with HR+/HER2- locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer initiating treatment with first line endocrine-based palbociclib combination therapy in the real-world setting in Germany and Austria. Patient characteristics, real-world treatment patterns, treatment sequences and reasons for the physician's treatment decisions will be collected. Additional real-world research questions are to explore patient-focused parameters such as longitudinal follow-up data on patient-reported outcomes beyond disease progression and by treatment sequence or to analyze the time from the start of first line treatment to the first administered palliative chemotherapy. Clinical outcome by treatment sequences will be described. Routinely assessed biomarkers and diagnostic procedures applied for treatment sequence decisions will be collected.

Interventions

  • Drug: Palbociclib + endocrine therapy
    • Palbociclib + letrozole, or Palbociclib + anastrozole, or Palbociclib + exemestane, or Palbociclib + fulvestrant after prior endocrine therapy In pre- or perimenopausal women, the endocrine therapy should be combined with a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist.

  • First-line Palbociclib + endocrine therapy
    • Palbociclib + letrozole, or Palbociclib + anastrozole, or Palbociclib + exemestane, or Palbociclib + fulvestrant after prior endocrine therapy

    • The FACT-B is a 37-item instrument designed to measure five domains of Health-Relaed Quality of Life (HRQOL) in breast cancer patients: PWB, Social/family Well-being (SWB), EWB, Functional Weell-being (FWB) as well as a Breast Cancer Subscale (BCS). Utilized with the 27 core FACT-G items, the FACT-B was developed with an emphasis on patients’ values and brevity. For all questions, participants are asked to respond to a 5-point Likert-type scale where 0=not at all, 1=a little bit, 2=somewhat, 3=quite a bit, and 4=very much. The higher the score, the better the QOL (minimum 0; maximum 148).
  • Change from baseline in the FACT-G total score
    • Time Frame: from the date of first questionnaire assessment until the date of last questionnaire assessment, assessed at baseline, thereafter 3-monthly until end of study, and at the end of palbociclib treatment, up to 7.5 years.
    • The FACT-G is a 27-item instrument designed to measure four domains of HRQOL in breast cancer patients: PWB) SWB, EWB), FWB. For all questions, participants are asked to respond to a 5-point Likert-type scale where 0=not at all, 1=a little bit, 2=somewhat, 3=quite a bit, and 4=very much. The higher the score, the better the QOL (minimum 0; maximum 108).
  • Change from baseline in the FACT-B subscales scores: PWB, SWB, EWB, FWB and additional concerns for BCS.
