    • With Positive (N+) or Negative (N-) Lymph-Node depending on the patient profile
    • And Non metastatic (M0)
  2. HER2/neu-negative (Immunohistochemical expression "0-1+", and/or FISH/CISH "non amplified" according to ASCO 2012 criteria)
  3. First line treatment population with a High-Risk of Relapse as defined by:
    • with at least 4 positive lymph nodes (LN) at primary surgery, or at least one positive lymph node >pN1mi after completion of 6-8 cycles of anthracyclines/taxanes-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy
    • Or, negative hormone receptors: ER- and PR- , (<10%), i.e "Triple Negative breast cancer" With at least one positive lymph node >pN1mi or negative lymph node if a pathological complete remission was not achieved (persistence of invasive carcinoma) after completion of 6-8 cycles of anthracyclines/taxanes-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy
  4. Patients must have completed all their local and regional treatments including adequate surgery and radiation therapy, and at least 6 cycles of chemotherapy (neoadjuvant and/or adjuvant) according to institutional and national standards.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Any breast cancer recurrence or metastasis.
  2. Patients with HER2/neu positive breast carcinoma (IHC score 2+ or 3+ and/or FISH/CISH-amplified).
  3. Patients with any uncontrolled bleeding disorder including coagulation disorder or thrombocytopenia or prothrombotic disorder.
