2014-07-23 21:12:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to determine the efficacy and relapse rate of low dose, short duration treatment with tamoxifen in benign breast disease amenable to hormonal therapy with respect to etiology and estrogen receptor status and to realize its side-effects and cost of therapy.

To do a comparative analysis of the results with evening primrose oil which is one of the first line management in benign breast disease.

Description

Benign breast disease is frequently encountered in female patients, a significant proportion of who are premenopausal women. Established methods of treatment do not yield significant results. This is not only a social burden but also entails high economic cost. As such the quality of life of these patients is a matter of concern for both the patients and their families and to attending physicians. Reported effects of tamoxifen on benign breast disease in premenopausal non high risk patients are scarce. Moreover published data has not yet revealed association of estrogen receptors in different benign breast lesions.The variability of response and its relation with estrogen receptor status is still a field of active investigation.
