A majority of breast cancers are hormone receptor (HR) positive and are responsive to various types of hormone manipulation. Endocrine therapy is the preferred first-line therapy for patients with advanced estrogen receptor (ER) positive, HER2-negative breast cancer Cited by: 4. Endocrine therapy (ET) is the usual first-line therapy for patients with hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer (HR+MBC). However, resistance to ET frequently occurs during the course.

Hormone therapy (also called hormonal therapy, hormone treatment, or endocrine therapy) slows or stops the growth of hormone-sensitive tumors by blocking the body’s ability to produce hormones or by interfering with effects of hormones on breast cancer . Hormones that every woman has in her body -- estrogen and progesterone -- can be fuel for some types of breast help the cells grow and spread. Hormone therapy, also called endocrine. How does hormone therapy work? About 2 out of 3 breast cancers are hormone receptor-positive. Their cells have receptors (proteins) for the hormones estrogen (ER-positive cancers) and/or progesterone (PR-positive cancers) which help the cancer cells grow and spread. There are several types of hormone therapy for breast cancer. Women with stage IV breast cancer are most often treated with systemic therapy. This may include hormone therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, or some combination of these. Local treatments .

Tamoxifen has become the most commonly used endocrine therapy of advanced breast cancer due to its few side effects and an overall response rate of 35%, which has been obtained in randomized.   INTRODUCTION. Breast cancer (bc a) affects 1 in 8 women during their lifetime imately 3 in 4 of those cancers are positive for either the estrogen or the progesterone receptor, where estrogen and progesterone are the key drivers of carcinogenesis ine therapy, which lowers estrogen levels and inhibits the growth of the cancer, remains the mainstay systemic treatment for hormone Cited by: 3.
