PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of exemestane and goserelin in treating premenopausal women who have metastatic breast cancer that has not responded to previous tamoxifen.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of exemestane and goserelin in premenopausal women with hormone receptor positive metastatic breast cancer after tamoxifen failure. II. Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients. III. Determine the hormonal profile of patients treated with this regimen. IV. Determine the predictive value of HER-2, epidermal growth factor receptor, and estrogen receptor for response in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral exemestane daily on days 1-28 and goserelin subcutaneously on day 1. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 22-40 patients will be accrued for this study.

Histological subtype, (invasive ductal breast cancer (IDBC)/invasive lobular breast cancer (ILBC)), might be a marker for differential response to endocrine therapy in breast cancer.
Non-inferiority in the cumulative castration rate of the 3-month formulation of degarelix compared with the 3-month formulation of goserelin was evaluated in subjects with prostate cancer. A phase III...
The leading cause of cancer death in women around the world is breast cancer. The aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are considered a first-line treatment for estrogen receptor-positive (ER) breast tumors, in...
Cardiovascular morbidity is closely associated with serum lipid level. We aimed to investigate the effects of different aromatase inhibitors, including letrozole, anastrozole, and exemestane, on the l...

A synthetic long-acting agonist of GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE. Goserelin is used in treatments of malignant NEOPLASMS of the prostate, uterine fibromas, and metastatic 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 infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
