"Novartis has the highest level of commitment to ensuring that women with breast cancer have the knowledge and therapies to reduce their risk of recurrence, whether they were diagnosed yesterday or many years ago," said Diane Young, M.D., Head of Global Medical Affairs at Novartis Oncology. "Femara offers protection against recurrence throughout several phases of breast cancer treatment in women with hormone-sensitive early breast cancer. These new data add to the body of clinical evidence for Femara."

The intent-to-treat analysis published in the Annals of Oncology evaluated the outcomes for women assigned to Femara and placebo in the original trial study arms. At a median follow-up of 64 months, Femara significantly reduced the risk of breast cancer recurrence by 32% versus placebo. Femara maintained its significant benefit over placebo, even though more than 60% of women in the placebo group started Femara when the study was unblinded.

Results from this analysis affirm the safety and efficacy of Femara as extended adjuvant therapy (i.e. following the completion of five years of tamoxifen).

The benefits of Femara in clinical trial are based on 24 months of treatment. Further follow-up will be needed to determine long-term results, in
