Endocrine therapy for hormone receptor (HR)-positive breast cancer has been an incredible success story, drastically reducing the rate of disease recurrence. Around 70% of breast cancers are HR-positive and express the oestrogen receptor (ER), a ligand-dependant transcription factor that transduces oestrogen signalling to pro-survival.

General Principles of Therapy •chemotherapy benefits everyone •endocrine therapy benefits only those with hormone receptor positive disease.

This decline corresponds with improved screeningfor prompt tumor detection, and advances in the treatment of earlydisease. Of these, endocrine therapy has played. While younger women with early-stage, oestrogen-sensitive breast cancer are almost invariably treated with surgery plus endocrine therapy, (which deprives the cancer of the hormonal stimulus that induces its growth), women over the age of 70 years are frequently offered endocrine therapy alone. This is known as primary endocrine therapy.

The type of treatment recommended will depend on the size and location of the tumor in the breast, the results of lab tests done on the cancer cells, and the stage, or extent, of the disease. Your doctor will usually consider your age and general health as well as your feelings about the treatment options.

Hormone Therapy in Neoadjuvant Treatment. The efficacy of AIs in downstaging and reducing tumor volume before surgical interventions in postmenopausal women with breast cancer positive for hormone receptors who are potentially operable has been demonstrated in several randomized studies (Table 3) [5–8].Two prospective phase 2 studies compared the efficacy of neoadjuvant therapy by AIs.

Hormone therapy (also called hormonal therapy, hormone treatment, or endocrine therapy) slows or stops the growth of hormone-sensitive tumors by blocking the body’s ability to produce hormones or by interfering with effects of hormones on breast cancer cells.

Tumors that are hormone insensitive do not have hormone receptors and do not respond to hormone therapy.

Abstract: Breast cancer remains one of the first leading causes of death in women, and currently endocrine treatment is of major therapeutic value in patients with estrogen-receptor positive tumors.

Overview: Adjuvant endocrine therapy for early-stage breast cancer has had the single biggest impact on improving survival from the disease—with tamoxifen alone contributing to saving many thousands of lives. In postmenopausal women, additional progress has been made by the incorporation of aromatase inhibitors into the treatment of early-stage, estrogen receptor (ER)–positive breast.

Initial therapy of metastatic breast cancer in most women with hormone receptor–positive tumors should include endocrine therapy. About 60% of women with metastatic breast cancer will respond to chemotherapy regimens; anthracycline- and taxane-containing regimens are the most active. Hormone therapy (sometimes called endocrine therapy) is a way to treat cancer by using hormones or drugs or other treatments that affect hormones.

Hormone therapy is a form of systemic therapy, like chemotherapy. It can be used after surgery (adjuvant therapy) to help lower the risk of cancer coming back, or before surgery (neoadjuvant treatment). Around 7 out of 10 breast cancers (70%) have oestrogen receptors.

They are called oestrogen receptor positive cancer or ER positive cancer. When you have hormone therapy After surgery.

It is most common to have hormone therapy after surgery for breast cancer. This is called adjuvant treatment. This RRCR-conference-volume marks "number six" in a year evolution of international conferences on the adjuvant therapy of primary breast cancer.

Adjuvant Endocrine Therapy for Premenopausal Women with Early Breast Cancer. About one quarter of newly diagnosed breast cancers occur in women under 50 years of age, a commonly used surrogate for premenopausal status [].About 60% of these young women have hormone-responsive tumors [], and have typically been offered adjuvant Tamoxifen therapy with or without ovarian suppression [].

Conclusion. Endocrine therapy represents an important strategy in the management of both early and advanced hormone positive breast cancer. Additional research is required to better define the role of neoadjuvant therapy and the optimal duration of treatment.

A growing body of evidence indicates that endocrine therapy-resistant breast cancer cells possess CSC characteristics. Consistent with this, we showed that miRoverexpressing ER − breast cancer cells have a decreased percentage of CD44 high /CD24 low CSC population, and therefore, they will be more sensitive to tamoxifen.

Hormone therapy is used to treat prostate and breast cancers that use hormones to grow. Hormone therapy is most often used along with other cancer treatments. The types of treatment that you need depend on the type of cancer, if it has spread and how far, if it uses hormones to grow, and if you have other health problems.

In this blog post, I will review the current recommendation of endocrine therapy for early non-metastatic breast cancer hormone positive breast cancer (Estrogen receptor positive ER + and/or Progesterone receptor positive PR +), this is most often referred to as Adjuvant hormonal or Adjuvant Endocrine therapy, for discussion regarding the use of endocrine therapy for metastatic breast cancer.

Adjuvant therapy given before the main treatment is called neoadjuvant therapy. This type of adjuvant therapy can also decrease the chance of the cancer coming back, and it's often used to make the primary treatment — such as an operation or radiation treatment — easier or more effective.

Approximately % of patients with breast cancer who are prescribed endocrine therapy do not complete the full course of treatment, and some patients never start. Side effects of endocrine therapy are well documented but there is very little literature on the role of the medical team in helping patients manage treatment-related side effects.

Approximately 70% of patients have breast cancers that are oestrogen receptor alpha positive (ER+) and are therefore candidates for endocrine treatment. Many of these patients relapse in the years during or following completion of adjuvant endocrine therapy. Thus, many ER+ cancers have primary resistance or develop resistance to endocrine therapy during treatment.

Getting the best breast cancer treatment can feel like a balancing act: you want to do as much as you can to get rid of the cancer and reduce the risk of it coming back.

But you'd like to avoid uncomfortable side effects that might lower your quality of life.
