Neoadjuvant Hormonal Therapy
Adjuvant Hormonal Therapy
Ryden et al 2005, multicenter, Sweden, 1986-1991RCT (secondary analysis)Stage II invasive cancer, premenopausal or <50 years old. Includes HR+ and HR-564428136 (64, no specimens; 72, not assessable by IHC). Another 55 not assessable by FISH. Baseline prognostic factors similar in groups with or without specimens.TAM for 2 yrs vs no TAM; also mastectomy or breast-conserving surgery + radiotherapy

<2% pts received additional adjuvant chemotherapy (polychemotherapy, n=8; goserelin, n=1). Evenly distributed across arms.
Knoop et al. 2001, 27 sites, all in Denmark?, 8/77–11/82RCT (secondary analysis of Danish Breast Cancer Cooperative Group's 77c protocol)Adjuvant, postmenopausal, “high risk” (positive axillary lymph nodes, tumor > 5 cm, skin or deep facia involvement)
(Note: eligibility did not depend on hormone receptor status)
17161515201 (167, no specimens; 33, unevaluable ; 1,,unaccounted for. Baseline prognostic factors & outcomes similar in groups with or without specimens.)TAM thrice daily for 1 year vs observation. All patients treated with mastectomy, lower ALND, and radiotherapy.

8% of the TAM pts were HER2-positive, vs. 14% of the observation arm (p=0.001) (per email from Dr. Knoop)
Metastatic Hormonal Therapy
Arpino et al. 2004, multicenter, US?, 1982-1987Prospective uncontrolled,
SWOG protocol 8228 and ancillary study 9314
First-line Tx for metastatic disease, ER+; prior adjuvant TAM or chemo completed > 3 mos before relapse349136213 (134, no specimens; 7, inevaluable specimens; 4, lost to F/U, 68, assays unsuccessful)TAM twice daily until disease progression (failure), 10 mg (n=56) or 10 mg/m2 (n=149)
