Breast Cancer Patients Should Stay On Drugs For 10 Years To Cut Chance Of Disease Returning, Experts Urge

Aromatase Inhibitors are prescribed to stop breast tumors from returning.  Many women take them for 5 years, but a new study was unveiled at the American Society for Clinical Oncology conference in Chicago and published online in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The study, led by a team at Harvard Medical School, found that women who received aromatase inhibitors (AIs) for 10 years rather than five were a third less likely to have their cancer return or develop cancer in their other breast.  Approx 2,000 post-menopausal women with early-stage breast cancer took part in the study.
