In a small series of patients treated for 14 days with the second-generation steroidal inhibitor 4-hydroxyandrostenedione (formestane) prior to surgery, we have demonstrated in ER-positive tumors that there was a significant fall in proliferation which was not observed in ER-negative tumors (Fig. 5). Response could not be correlated in this study, but, at the Royal Marsden Hospital, ongoing randomized trials of 3 months of therapy have been undertaken in 53 postmenopausal women looking at the third-generation aromatase inhibitor vorozole versus tamoxifen (63).
