Title   ALLIANCE 011502: A Randomized Phase III Double Blinded Placebo Controlled Trial of Aspirin as Adjuvant Therapy for Node Positive HER2 Negative Breast Cancer: The ABC Trial
Summary   The aim of this study is to compare the good and bad effects of using aspirin after the usual chemotherapy, surgery and/or radiation for treatment of early stage node-positive HER2 negative breast cancer. Aspirin is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but is not approved for the purpose of lowering the risk of breast cancer returning or improving survival. This study will evaluate whether patients taking aspirin have a lower rate of breast cancer recurrence.
Description   Patients will be randomized to receive 300 mg aspirin daily for 5 years or placebo daily for 5 years. The study also involves completing questionnaires that are designed to evaluate lifestyle factors that may be related to inflammation. Patients will be followed for a total of 10 years.
IRB Number   1076289
