CONFIRM (COmparisoN of FASLODEX In Recurrent or Metastatic breast cancer) was a Phase III, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, multi-center trial comparing fulvestrant 500 mg (n=362) and 250 mg (n=374) in postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor-positive advanced breast cancer, who progressed or recurred following one prior endocrine therapy (antiestrogen or aromatase inhibitor).
