PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying hormone replacement therapy to see how well it works in relieving symptoms of menopause in postmenopausal women with previous stage I or stage II breast cancer.
- Compare disease-free survival and overall survival of postmenopausal women with prior stage I or II breast cancer treated with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) vs nonhormonal alternatives to HRT.
- Compare relief of menopausal symptoms and quality of life of patients treated with these regimens.
- Compare cardiovascular and osteoporotic events in patients treated with these regimens.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to participating center, age (< 40 years vs ≥ 40 years), and years from diagnosis (≤ 2 vs > 2 to < 5 vs ≥ 5). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive oral or transdermal HRT comprising estrogen with or without progesterone for at least 2 years.
- Arm II: Patients are offered advice on nonhormonal HRT alternatives. Menopausal symptoms are assessed at baseline, at 3, 6, and 12 months, every 6 months for 4 years, and then annually thereafter. Quality of life is assessed at baseline, at 3, 6, and 12 months, every 6 months for 1 year, and then annually thereafter.
Patients are followed every 6 months for 3 years and then annually thereafter.

The main purpose of this study is to determine if taking the study drug, conjugated estrogens/bazedoxifene (Duavee®) causes any changes in the proliferation markers within the breast tiss...
The primary purpose is to determine bioavailability of Bazedoxifene/conjugated estrogen formulations for future testing purposes.
Vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) is a condition that impacts up to 60% of the growing postmenopausal female population, and the most common symptom is dyspareunia. Vaginal estrogen is the most c...
This study involves the experimental drug bazedoxifene acetate/conjugated estrogens (also called BZA/CE). This drug is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). About 24 sub...
Evidence from different sources sustains a pro-oncogenic role of hormones, estrogens and progestogens, on the breast. The issue is of interest for young women, who are exposed to the hormonal changes ...
Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer among women in most countries (WHO). Ovarian hormone disorder is thought to be associated with breast tumorigenesis. The present study investigated the...
Very high progesterone levels (mean 186.6 ± 43.6 ng/mL) during the luteal phase were found in a small study of breast cancers patients undergoing controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) with letrozole p...
The estrogen receptor α (ER) and the progesterone receptor (PgR) are one of the most important prognostic and predictive immunohistochemical markers in breast cancer. Breast cancers may express vario...
By the 1990s it became popular for women to use hormone therapy (HT) to ease menopause symptoms. Bioidentical estrogen and progesterone are supplements whose molecular structures are identical to what...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
An antineoplastic agent that is a derivative of progesterone and used to treat advanced breast cancer.
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
A pharmaceutical preparation containing a mixture of water-soluble, conjugated estrogens derived wholly or in part from URINE of pregnant mares or synthetically from ESTRONE and EQUILIN. It contains a sodium-salt mixture of estrone sulfate (52-62%) and equilin sulfate (22-30%) with a total of the two between 80-88%. Other concomitant conjugates include 17-alpha-dihydroequilin, 17-alpha-estradiol, and 17-beta-dihydroequilin. The potency of the preparation is expressed in terms of an equivalent quantity of sodium estrone sulfate.
Cytoplasmic proteins that bind estrogens and migrate to the nucleus where they regulate DNA transcription. Evaluation of the state of estrogen receptors in breast cancer patients has become clinically important.
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
The menopause is a natural event for all women; the ovaries no longer produce estrogen and progesterone. This can be due to natural aging (usual age of onset is 51 years), or through chemotherapy and surgery on the ovaries. The changing balance of the ho...
