Description

Because of the predominant role estrogens play in the development of breast cancer and the limited effectiveness of tamoxifen therapy, more selective therapeutics targeting estrogen signaling have been developed: selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs), selective estrogen receptor downregulators (SERDs), and a third generation of drugs that inhibit the aromatase required for estrogen biosyntheses. The authors examine clinical and translational research results from studies of these endocrine therapies and chemotherapies in pre- and postmenopausal women with early and advanced breast cancer. Advances in Endocrine Therapy of Breast Cancer provides guidance on promising new therapeutics and treatment combinations based on compelling clinical evidence.
