Patients taking aromatase inhibitors had a decreased risk of vaginal bleeding and blood clots compared to those using other hormonal therapies.

Safety data were difficult to analyze, Bliss said: “The picture is patchy due to poor quality of adverse event reporting and different study endpoints,” in the various trials.

However, “the review findings do confirm modest, but real therapeutic benefits from the use of aromatase inhibitors in a variety of clinical settings,” Bliss said.

Edith Perez, M.D., an oncologist with the Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Program at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., said, “The results of the review are not a surprise. These are good drugs and they have positively impacted the lives of patients with breast cancer.” Perez is not associated with the review.
