    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of the study is to determine the clinical benefit of the addition of bevacizumab to standard chemotherapy for previously treated metastatic breast cancer (MBC), as measured by progression-free survival (PFS).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of this study are to evaluate the efficacy and safety of bevacizumab when combined with chemotherapy compared with chemotherapy alone in subjects receiving second-line therapy for MBC, as measured by the following:
    • Estimation of the clinical benefit of the addition of bevacizumab to standard chemotherapy, as measured by overall survival
    • Estimation of the clinical benefit of the addition of bevacizumab to each chemotherapy regimen,
    • Determination of the clinical benefit, as measured by objective response rate, duration of objective response, one-year survival, and overall survival, of the addition of bevacizumab to standard chemotherapy options compared with standard chemotherapy alone
    • To evaluate the toxicity, as measured by selected adverse events, adverse events resulting in treatment discontinuation, and serious adverse events, of standard chemotherapy options with or without bevacizumab

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects must meet the following criteria to be eligible for study entry:
    • Signed Informed Consent Form
    • ≥ 18 years of age
    • Histologically confirmed carcinoma of the breast with measurable or
    non-measurable metastatic disease that has progressed
    Subjects with a history of brain metastasis are eligible for study participation,
    as long as their brain metastases have been treated and they have no
    evidence of progression or hemorrhage after treatment and no ongoing
    requirement for dexamethasone, as ascertained by clinical examination and
    brain imaging (MRI or CT scans) during the screening period. CT scan with
    contrast or MRI scan of the brain must be performed at least 3 weeks after
    completion of all therapy to the brain.
    Treatment for brain metastasis may include the following: WBRT, SRS
    (Gamma knife, LINAC, or equivalent), or a combination as deemed
    appropriate by the treating physician. Radiotherapy and stereotactic
    radiosurgery must be completed at least 4 weeks prior to Day 0.
    Subjects may also have neurosurgical resection. Neurosurgery must be
    completed at least 6 weeks prior to Day 0, and brain biopsy must be
    completed at least 4 weeks prior to Day 0.
    • Progression of disease during or following administration of one
    (non-investigational) chemotherapy regimen, defined as single-agent
    chemotherapy administered prior to or during disease progression or a
    pre-specified combination or sequence of cytotoxic agents administered in
    the first-line setting
    Subjects whose initial treatment changed prior to progression in the
    first-line setting are ineligible unless the change occurred within 30 days
    of initial treatment due to toxicity.
    • ECOG performance status of 0 or 1
    • For women of childbearing potential, use of an effective means of
    non-hormonal contraception
    • Life expectancy ≥ 3 months
    • Willingness and capacity to comply with study and follow-up procedures
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Subjects who meet any of the following criteria will be excluded from study entry:
    a. Disease Treatment History
    • Prior hormonal therapy only as treatment for metastatic disease
    without chemotherapy. Patients must have received chemotherapy for their
    metastatic disease in the first-line setting. Hormone therapy alone is not allowed.
    • For subjects who have received prior anthracycline-based therapy,
    documentation of left ventricular ejection fraction < 50% by either
    multiple gated acquisition (MUGA) or echocardiogram (ECHO)
    • Treatment with more than one prior cytotoxic regimen for MBC
    • HER2-positive status
    In general, HER2-positive status will be identified by a fluorescence in situ
    hybridization (FISH) assay as evaluated at the institution or, if FISH is
    unavailable, a 2 + or 3 + immunohistochemistry result (but the method of
    identification may vary by region or institution). Patients who have unknown
    HER2 status, and for whom determination of HER2 status is not possible,
    are eligible for this study.
    • Unknown ER and PR status
    • Radiation therapy other than for palliation or brain metastasis, biologic therapy,
    or chemotherapy for MBC within 21 days prior to Day 0
    • Prior therapy with bevacizumab or other VEGF pathway–targeted therapy
    b. Bevacizumab Exclusion Criteria
    • Untreated brain metastasis
    • Inadequately controlled hypertension (defined as systolic blood pressure >150 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure >100 mmHg on anti-hypertensive medications
    • Unstable angina
    • New York Heart Association Grade II or greater CHF (see Appendix C)
    • History of myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to Day 0 (the day of the
    first bevacizumab/placebo infusion)
    • History of stroke or transient ischemic attack within 6 months prior to Day 0
    • Clinically significant peripheral vascular disease
    • Evidence of bleeding diathesis or coagulopathy
    • Major surgical procedure, open biopsy, or significant traumatic injury within
    28 days prior to Day 0; anticipation of need for major elective surgical
    procedure during the study
    • Minor surgical procedures, fine-needle aspirations, or core biopsies within
    7 days prior to Day 0
    • History of abdominal fistula, gastrointestinal perforation, or intra-abdominal
    abscess within 6 months prior to Day 0
    • Serious, non-healing wound, ulcer, or bone fracture
    Subjects with fractures secondary to metastatic disease are eligible after
    appropriate radiotherapy.
    • History of anaphylactic reaction to monoclonal antibody therapy not controlled with
    treatment premedication
    c. General Exclusion Criteria
    • Inadequate organ function, as evidenced by any of the following laboratory
    Absolute neutrophil count < 1500/µL
    Platelet count < 100,000/µL
    Total bilirubin > 1.5 mg/dL
    AST and/or ALT > 2 × the upper limit of normal (ULN) ( > 5 × the ULN in
    subjects with known liver involvement)

    the cervix
    Subjects with a history of bilateral breast cancer or history of breast cancer will be
    • Pregnancy (positive serum pregnancy test) or lactation
    • Any other diseases, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding,
    or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or
    condition that contraindicates the use of an investigational drug or that may
    affect the interpretation of the results or renders the subject at high risk from
    treatment complications
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Disease progression will be assessed by the investigator according to RECIST
    PFS is defined as the time from randomization to disease progression or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first. Data for subjects without disease progression or death will be censored at the last tumor assessment plus 1 day prior to their withdrawal from study follow-up (or, if no tumor assessments were performed after the baseline visit, at the time of randomization plus 1 day).

    PFS will be formally tested using a two-sided stratified log-rank test at α = 0.05
    (equivalent to a one-sided test at α = 0.025 for the hypothesis that the addition of
    bevacizumab to chemotherapy is superior to chemotherapy alone). The stratification
    factors are chemotherapy chosen on study (taxane, gemcitabine, vinorelbine,
    capecitabine), ER and PR status (ER and PR negative, other), and interval from
    initial metastatic disease diagnosis to progression after first-line cytotoxic
    chemotherapy (< 6 months, ≥ 6 months). Results from an unstratified log-rank test
    will also be presented. Kaplan-Meier methodology will be used to estimate median
    PFS for each treatment arm, and the Kaplan-Meier curve will be constructed to
    provide a visual depiction of the difference between the treatment arms.
