Breast Capsular Contracture Following Post-Mastectomy Reconstruction in Women Treated With the Leukotriene Inhibitor Zafirlukast: A Phase II Trial

A 2 arm, 90 patient (45 per cohort) trial in patients with breast cancer who will be undergoing mastectomy with immediate tissue-expander reconstruction to determine whether treatment with zafirlukast (20mg PO BID) can reduce or prevent the development of capsular contracture. Patients will be block randomized 1:1 into two cohorts: ...
