    In some 70 women in Germany developed invasive tumors of the breast. Patients’ mean age at diagnosis was 64 ().Breast cancer is the most common tumor disorder in women in Germany ().Currently, about 17 women die from breast cancer every year (), of whom more than half are older than 70 ().Breast cancer mortality is slightly decreasing in Germany (). Women with estrogen receptor (ER)+ early breast cancer (BC) are at continuing risk of relapse up to at least 15 years after diagnosis, despite being on adjuvant endocrine therapy for approximately 5 years. Extended adjuvant endocrine therapy with an aromatase inhibitor (AI) after 5 years of tamoxifen further reduces the risk of recurrence in postmenopausal women. More recently, continuing.

      ADJUVANT TREATMENT WITH TAMOXI-afen for 5 years reduces the recurrence of premenopausal estrogen-receptor–positive breast cancer, with increasing benefits for overall survival during 5 to 15 years of follow-up. 1 Extending the duration of tamoxifen treatment to 10 years further improves outcomes. 2 The effect of adding ovarian suppression has been less certain. 3 Among . Background: The use of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with breast cancer may be guided by clinicopathological factors and a score based on a gene assay to determine the risk of recurrence. Whether the level of clinical risk of breast cancer recurrence adds prognostic information to the recurrence score is not known.

      This fact sheet defines adjuvant therapy for breast cancer and explains the length of treatment, which patients are best suited for this treatment, side effects, and highlights current research. Based on the lectures presented at the 6th International Conference on Adjuvant Therapy of Primary Breast Cancer, held in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Series Recent results in cancer research,, Genre congresses. Other Titles Adjuvant therapy of primary breast cancer six, Adjuvant therapy of primary breast cancer 6.
