S1501 Carvedilol in Preventing Cardiac Toxicity in Patients With Metastatic HER-2-Positive Breast Cancer

This phase III trial studies how well carvedilol works in preventing cardiac toxicity in
patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)-2-positive breast cancer that has
spread to other places in the body. A beta-blocker, such as carvedilol, is used to treat
heart failure and high blood pressure, and it may prevent the heart from side effects of
chemotherapy.
