The primary aim of this Phase III randomized clinical trial is to determine whether trastuzumab given concurrently with radiation therapy (RT) is more beneficial in preventing subsequent ipsilateral breast cancer recurrence, ipsilateral skin cancer recurrence, or ipsilateral DCIS, when compared with RT alone in women with HER2-positive ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) resected by lumpectomy.
Limentani, Steven A 
To determine whether the addition of trastuzumab to chemotherapy (TC or AC?_WP) improves invasive disease-free survival (IDFS) in women with resected node-positive or high-risk node-negative breast cancer which is reported as HER2-low by all HER2 testing performed. Limentani, Steven A

The primary aim of the study is to determine the pathologic complete response (pCR) rate in breast and axillary nodes following the neoadjuvant therapy regimens. Limentani, Steven A 
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of iniparib administered as monotherapy or in combination regimens in patients previously treated with iniparib in a clinical study and who have derived clinical benefit after completion of the parental study's objectives.
