Prof John Robertson - University of Nottingham, UK

Prof Robertson talks to ecancertv at the 2010 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium about fulvestrant (500mg dose) in comparison to the aromatase inhibitor, anastrozole, when used as a first-line treatment for hormone receptor positive breast cancer. Follow-up data from the FIRST (FASLODEX fIRst line Study comparing endocrine Treatments) trial - a randomised, open-label, phase II trial in postmenopausal women with locally advanced or metastatic disease - showed a 34% reduction in risk of progression with fulvestrant 500mg compared with anastrozole. Prof Robertson considers impact in the clinic and potential future research.
