- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedMamma carcinoma, Cisplatin, Relapse, Hyperthermia, Reirradiation, PET-CT
- Inclusion criteria1. Macroscopic local regional recurrence of breast cancer in previously irradiated area, not suitable for resection;
2. Recurrence is measurable by clinical examination and/or radiological (CT-scan, MRI or ultrasound) assessment;
3. Confirmation of diagnosis of the local regional recurrence including all subtypes of invasive adenocarcinoma by histology or FNA (fine needle aspiration);
4. Local regional recurrence of breast cancer must be treatable with radiation and hyperthermia at the discretion of the treating physician (i.e. thickness ≤ 4 cm; cross-sectional diameter ≤ 30 cm);
5. Digital photograph of recurrence;
6. WBC ≥ 3,000; NG ≥ 1,000; platelets ≥ 100,000, ANC ≥ 1500;
7. Serum bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times upper limit of normal, transaminase ≤ 3 times upper limit of normal;
8. Calculated creatinine clearance > 60 ml/liter (Cockroft);
9. Distant metastases are allowed if life expectancy is ≥ 1 year i.e. limited bone metastases;
10. Concurrent endocrine/hormonal therapy is allowed;
11. ECOG performance score ≤ 2;
12. Written informed consent;
13. Patients must be older than 18 year;
14. Patient must not be pregnant or lactating. If appropriate effective contraception must be used.
- Exclusion criteria1. Concurrent chemotherapy other than study medication;
2. Uncontrolled infection;
3. Other previous malignancy that could conceivably be active;
4. Patients with pacemakers or implanted defibrillators on the same site as the treatment (if this is the case, the pacemaker or implanted defibrillator should be replaced if possible).

- Target number of participants104
- InterventionsStandard arm:
Radiotherapy/hyperthermia: 8 x 4 Gy to the affected area, two fractions per week, in combination with once weekly hyperthermia.

Study arm:
8 x 4 Gy to the affected area, two fractions per week, in combination with once weekly hyperthermia combined with Cispatin 40 mg/m▓ once per week. Cisplatin is given intravenously during the hyperthermia session.

Translational study on PET-CT: Minimum of 1 extra PET-CT scan, maximum of 5 extra PET-CT scans, only if the patient gives consent for this study!

Translational study on tumour biology: DNA Damage response and hypoxia: 2 x subcutaneous injection with Lidoca´ne 2 %; 2 x biopsy of the tumour; 2 x measurement of hypoxia with the Eppendorf electrode, only if the patient gives consent for this study!
- Primary outcomeLocal control rate.
- Secondary outcome1. Acute toxicity: Grade 4 dermatitis (ulceration/ necrosis), induced by treatment, requiring reconstructive surgery and/or hyperbaric oxygen;
2. Clinical complete response rate;
3. Disease free survival;
4. Overall survival;
5. Actuarial late toxicity.
- TimepointsPatients will be seen 2, 4, 6 weeks and 3, 6, 9, and 12 months following completion of protocol therapy, or earlier in case of complaints or suspicion of recurrence. If CR or PR is assessed at one of these visits the patient will be seen 4 weeks after that visit for confirmation according to the RECIST criteria. After 1 year patients will be seen every 6 months. At each visit a digital photograph of the treated area is required. All toxicity will be measured by the treating physician according to the CTC criteria.

- Brief summaryPatients with a local regional recurrence of invasive breast cancer in previously irradiated area treated with standard therapy consisting of radiotherapy and hyperthermia have a 3 year local control rate of 40%. In patients with inoperable local regional recurrences of breast cancer in previously irradiated areas subsequent local control is difficult to maintain with reirradiation only or combined with chemotherapy or hyperthermia. Effective treatment options are limited and as a consequence there is a high risk on subsequent failure and uncontrollable local disease. Moreover, progression of local regional recurrences may ultimately cause ulceration with odor, pain and bleeding resulting in considerable physical and mental suffering In view of the known radio enhancing effect of Cisplatin and the enhancement of Cisplatin and radiation effect by hyperthermia one might hypothesize that the combination of radiotherapy, hyperthermia and cisplatin can lead to improvement of local control, though toxicity may also be enhanced. Our department has experience with this trimodality treatment in esophageal cancer and uterine cervix cancer where it appears feasible. In the treatment of cervix cancer 40 mg/m2 CDDP once a week during radiotherapy is used currently. It seems worthwhile to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of the combination of re-irradiation, hyperthermia and weekly Cisplatin for local regional recurrent breast cancer in previously irradiated area.
