Denise A. Yardley, MD, senior investigator of breast cancer research, Sarah Cannon Research Institute, discusses current recommendations for estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer treatment.

The recommendations for adjuvant endocrine therapy are still evolving and utilizes tamoxifen with premenopausal patients. The recent data with axillary dissection with access minimized (ADAM), adjuvant tamoxifen longer against shorter (ATLAS), and extending the therapy from tamoxifen from 5 to 10 years are consistent.

Oncologists are currently tailoring adjuvant endocrine therapy to each patient. Additionally, there have been mixed results from clinical trials, such as the MA17R and the NSABP-42 studies.
