Dr Julie Lemieux - Hôpital du Saint-Sacrement, Québec, Canada

Dr Lemieux speaks with ecancertv at ASCO 2016 with results from MA.17R, a randomised trial in which doubling the duration of letrozole treatment for postmenopausal women with early stage breast cancer resulted in significantly improved survival.

She reports on the increased rate of progression-free survival, and patient outcomes beyond relapse rate.
