New treatment option for young women with hormone‐sensitive breast cancer.
The Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) Question
This landmark study is the first to demonstrate that taking exemestane along with blocking ovarian function prevents cancer recurrence in young women with hormone‐sensitive breast cancer, a common type of breast cancer. These practice‐changing results provide a new treatment option for young women with hormone‐sensitive breast cancer, previously only recommended for postmenopausal women. This IBCSG study is the culmination of a successful, decade‐long worldwide collaboration spanning 27 countries and 6 continents.
