A Randomized Phase III Double Blinded Placebo Controlled Trial of Aspirin as Adjuvant Therapy for Node Positive HER2 Negative Breast Cancer: The ABC Trial
This randomized phase III trial studies how well aspirin works in preventing the cancer from coming back (recurrence) in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) breast cancer after chemotherapy, surgery, and/or radiation therapy. Aspirin is a drug that reduces pain, fever, inflammation, and blood clotting. It is also being studied in cancer prevention. Giving aspirin may reduce the rate of cancer recurrence in patients with breast cancer.
•Regular NSAID/aspirin use (defined as greater than or equal to 5 days per week) is allowed if aspirin and/or NSAIDs are stopped for one year prior to study entry and throughout the study period. Participants will be encouraged to use acetaminophen for minor pain and fever.
•Patients must be enrolled within 1 year after diagnosis.
•For patients who are Helicobacter pylori positive, a course of Helicobacter pylori eradication treatment must have been completed
