Dr Michael Gnant - Medizinischen Universität Wien, Vienna, Austria

Prof Michael Gnant speaks with ecancer at SABCS 2017 to discuss the outcomes of a multi-centre phase III randomised trial of 2 or 5 years of anastrozole for post-menopausal breast cancer patients after 5 years of endocrine therapy.

He describes the near-identical outcomes of patients in terms of disease free survival and overall survival, and notes the improved treatment adherence and reduced risk of bone fractures in women receiving the shorter course.

For more on these results, watch Prof Gnant present the results in a press session here.
