Phase: III 

Description: A Phase III Randomized Study of Exemestane Versus Placebo in Postmenopausal Women at Increased Risk of Developing Breast Cancer 

Eligibility: Postmenopausal women at increased risk for the development of breast cancer are eligible for this study 

Objective: To determine if exemestane reduces the incidence of invasive breast cancer compared with placebo 

Participation: Open to member centres 

Lay Description: After menopause when the ovaries stop making estrogen the body continues to make estrogen from skin, muscle and fat. Even though it is only present at low levels it continues to be very important in the development of breast cancer. A new drug, called exemestane, stops the supply of estrogen to pre-cancerous and cancerous cells and helps to prevent them from growing.
