Together, the BCPT and STAR trials demonstrated that safety can be improved in iterative generations of agents and trials.
I have to ask, why aren't the results of the BCPT and STAR trials more vigorously applied in clinical practice?
The BCPT study, however, also showed that tamoxifen increased the women's chance of developing four potentially life-threatening health problems: endometrial cancer (cancer of the lining of the uterus), deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in large veins), pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lung), and possibly stroke.
She reported on 13,388 women at high risk for developing breast cancer who were randomized to tamoxifen or placebo in the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project Breast Cancer Prevention Trial (NSABP BCPT P-1).
Now, NCI and NSABP are embarking on a second prevention trial (STAR - Study of Tamoxifen and Raloxifene) testing raloxifene, a drug used to treat osteoporosis, against the proven safety and efficacy of Nolvadex in the reduction of breast cancer incidence as shown in the BCPT.
