Patient management: Quality of life and beyond
Date:12/12/2008

SAN ANTONIO - Breast cancer is a multifaceted disease requiring creative solutions for diagnosis, quality of life management and adjuvant therapies. Data presented at the CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium explore these areas.


Hormone Supplements Reduce Death from Breast Cancer
Abstract #65, Sarah Marshall, M.A.

Although hormone supplements have been implicated in increased rates of breast cancer, they appear to mitigate the mortality risk of breast cancers that do develop. Compared with women who did not use hormone therapy, women who took estrogen-progestin were 63 percent less likely to die from breast cancer while those who took estrogen alone were 30 percent less likely.

After one to four years of tamoxifen, switching to anastrozole improves disease-free survival by about 31 percent, but patients pay a price in quality of life measures. The difference in quality of life is significant enough that scientists say it should be considered, and may even be the deciding factor, when making a clinical decision about therapeutic strategy.

Letrozole following breast cancer surgery may provide survival benefit
Abstract #13, Alan Coates, M.D.
Embargo: 9:45 a.m. CST, December 11, 2008

Letrozole may improve overall survival in patients with primary breast cancer. A four-arm comparison study of letrozole and tamoxifen shows letrozole not only reduces recurrence, but may provide a 13 percent reduction in risk of death. Additionally, the study finds that using a sequence of tamoxifen and letrozole is not superior to letrozole alone. The sequence of
