Their role as the optimal second-line agents (post-tamoxifen) for the treatment of advanced breast cancer has recently been established in large comparative clinical trials. Their testing as adjuvant therapy is warranted, but their eventual application in this (or the prophylactic) setting will be dependent on the currently… CONTINUE READING
