The IES study (A5991012) investigated 4742 patients treated for 2 to 3 years with tamoxifen, who either continued the same treatment or switched to Aromasin® for a total treatment period of 5 years. Only 65 Romanian patients were enrolled in the IES study. It would therefore appear to be essential to evaluate and confirm the tolerability of Aromasin® and the ways in which it is used on a broader sample of patients and under the standard conditions of use as stipulated in the MA. This Non-Interventional study was designed to address these issues.
This is a prospective, non-comparative, non interventional study (NIS) in six hundred (600) postmenopausal women hormone-receptor positive invasive with early breast cancer, following 2-3 years of initial adjuvant tamoxifen therapy conducted in 60 sites from Romania according to protocol A5991091.The selection of patients based on diagnosis, the attribution of medicinal products and the follow-up of the subjects fall within the current medical practice. A Non-Interventional study is primarily observational in nature. The present Non-interventional Study is performed by medical oncologist and medical oncologist /radiation oncologist who agree to take part in this project. n/a

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)
