ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on a study that postmenopausal women with early breast cancer who received aromatase inhibitors with tamoxifen, had greater chances of disease-free survival than those women who received only tamoxifen. Most of the clinical trials have demonstrated trends toward longer overall survival. Some have also demonstrated crucial benefit in a subgroup, but none has demonstrated a statistically significant overall survival benefit.
