The first study was led by Mitch Dowsett, of The Royal Marsden Hospital and The Institute of Cancer Research, and assessed over 30,000 early breast cancer patients who were postmenopausal. The women took an AI or tamoxifen, the standard treatment drug, for five years. The AI group saw a 15 percent drop in risk of death and 30 percent reduction in risk of cancer. Dowsett said, "Our global collaboration has revealed that the risk of postmenopausal women with the most common form of breast cancer dying of their disease is reduced by 40 percent by taking five years of an AI - a significantly greater protection than that offered by tamoxifen."
