This is a clinical trial study on advanced breast
carcinoma using low-dose Sunitinib to 'Normalization'
the microvascular environment to enhance the delivery of
anti-cancer drugs (AC)to the cancer cells. In vivo DCE-MRI
and DTI are used to monitor the perfusion,and 4 other
vessel parameters changes prior to the main course of
chemotherapy to reveal the most sensitive
biomarker(s)with respect to tumor mass by MRI. Other
histological parameters are measured.
