This chapter reviews the current status and potential expanded role of systemic hormonal therapy and chemotherapy in advanced breast cancer. It is important to stress the value of appropriate patient selection guided by individual patient preference, defined clinical criteria, and the use of new biochemical predictive factors. It is reasonable to anticipate higher complete response rates in advanced breast cancer and hence the possibility of curing a greater percentage of these patients. 19 20 Harvey and Sachdeva II.

Aromatase Inhibitors in the Endocrine Therapy of Breast Cancer 41 Our subsequent data suggest that preservation of ER at relapse on tamoxifen may prove the best predictor of response to second-line endocrine therapy, especially to aromatase inhibitors (55). Of the 72 patients in the series above, there were 29 who had received tamoxifen as first-line therapy for advanced disease and then went on to receive second-line endocrine therapy with either third-generation aromatase inhibitors (anastrozole, letrozole, vorozole) or progestins (medroxyprogesterone acetate).
