This protocol called, EAY191-N2, is part of the ComboMATCH precision medicine initiative for people that have hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer with NF1 mutation. The ComboMATCH registration trial studies show how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes (locally advanced) or have spread to other places in the body (advanced) and have progressed on at least one line of standard systemic therapy or have no standard treatment that has been shown to prolong overall survival.
For patients who have never received the usual drug fulvestrant, EAY191-N2 specifically will be testing if the addition of the drug called binimetinib to fulvestrant can help stabilize your breast cancer and help you live longer. For patients who have received fulvestrant before, EAY191-N2 will be testing if the addition of binimetinib can shrink your breast cancer within 4 months of starting the new treatment.

Doctors and researchers conduct a clinical study, also called a “clinical trial,” to find better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat an illness. NRG Oncology is supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and runs clinical studies specifically for patients with cancer or to prevent cancer. Most clinical studies test something we know against something we don’t know. In all situations, these studies are strictly evaluated before they are allowed to be offered to any patient. The study is designed to answer the question that we do not know the answer to, so that current and future patients may have better treatments or information than what we currently have. There are different types of clinical studies that might be available for patients. For more information see “Types of Clinical Trials” and “Phases of Clinical Trials”.
Patients who volunteer to take part in a clinical study are followed closely by their health care professionals and members of the research team. For more information see “Research Team Members”.
At NRG Oncology, we focus on conducting clinical studies aimed to improve current cancer care practices and the lives of cancer patients. NRG Oncology partners with more than 1,300 member sites world-wide to research ways to improve treatment standards in the cancer community. Our organization is supported primarily through grants from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and is one of five research groups in the NCI's National Clinical Trial's Network.
