Summary

RATIONALE: Duloxetine hydrochloride may lessen muscle, bone, and joint pain caused by hormone therapy. It is not yet known whether duloxetine hydrochloride is more effective than a placebo in treating patients with muscle, bone, and joint pain caused by hormone therapy.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial studies how well duloxetine hydrochloride works compared to a placebo in treating muscle, bone, and joint pain in patients with early-stage breast cancer receiving hormone therapy.

Description

OBJECTIVES

Primary

  • To assess whether daily duloxetine hydrochloride (duloxetine) decreases average joint pain in women with aromatase inhibitor-associated musculoskeletal syndrome (AIMSS), as measured at 12 weeks by the modified Brief Pain Inventory Short Form (BPI-SF).

Secondary

  • To assess whether daily duloxetine decreases worst joint pain in women with AIMSS, as measured at 12 weeks by the modified BPI-SF.
  • To assess whether daily duloxetine decreases pain interference in women with AIMSS, as measured at 12 weeks by the modified BPI-SF.
  • To investigate whether daily duloxetine improves functioning, pain, and stiffness in the knees/hips according to the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis (WOMAC) scale. (Exploratory)
  • To investigate whether daily duloxetine improves function, pain, and stiffness in the hands according to the Modified Score for the Assessment and Quantification of Chronic Rheumatoid Affections of the Hands (M-SACRAH). (Exploratory)
  • To investigate whether daily duloxetine improves functional quality of life as measured by the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Endocrine Scale (FACT-ES). (Exploratory)
  • To investigate whether daily duloxetine improves the proportion of patients reporting changes for the better versus worst as measured by the Global Rating of Change Scale. (Exploratory)
  • To investigate whether daily duloxetine decreases analgesic use.
  • To investigate whether daily duloxetine increases adherence to, and reduces the discontinuation rate for, aromatase inhibitor (AI) therapy. (Exploratory)
  • To assess whether patients receiving duloxetine as compared to placebo have improved depression as measured by the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) at Weeks 6 and 12. (Exploratory)
  • To explore the relationship between inherited variants in genes responsible for duloxetine metabolism and activity (COMT, HTR3A, SLC6A2, SLC6A4, CYP1A2, CYP2D6) and aromatase (CYP19A1) and change in pain with 12 weeks of treatment. (Exploratory)
  • To explore the impact of treatment on serum inflammatory cytokine levels with 12 weeks of treatment at baseline and 12 weeks. (Exploratory)
  • To bank blood samples for future correlative analyses. (Exploratory)

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to baseline pain score (4-6 vs 7-10), and prior taxane use (yes vs no). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

  • Arm I: Patients receive duloxetine hydrochloride orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-7, twice daily (BID) on days 8-84, and then QD on days 85-91.
  • Arm II: Patients receive placebo PO QD on days 1-7, BID on days 8-84, and then QD on days 85-91.

Patients complete the modified Brief Pain Inventory Short Form (BPI-SF) questionnaire at baseline and periodically during study treatment. Patients may also complete the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis (WOMAC) scale, the Modified Score for the Assessment and Quantification of Chronic Rheumatoid Affections of the Hands (M-SACRAH), the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Endocrine Scale (FACT-ES), Global Rating of Change Scale, and the patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9).

Patients undergo blood sample collection at baseline and periodically during treatment for correlative studies, including biomarker and genetic studies.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 168 days.
