Vered Stearns, a medical oncologist and co-director of the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center in Baltimore, says she occasionally prescribes vaginal estrogens to breast cancer survivors with significant symptoms who have not benefited from nonhormonal treatments. But when she does, Stearns says, she explains that there is not enough data to confirm their safety. "I agree with [ACOG] that this has to be a risk versus benefit discussion," she says. Stearns stresses that more needs to be learned about the safety of vaginal estrogens, especially in patients taking an aromatase inhibitor.

There's no evidence that any of these drugs actually save lives, says Vered Stearns of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

That may be because the drugs prevent only slow-growing or less aggressive tumors, which can be cured through standard treatment, Stearns says.

Vered Stearns, MD

Professor of Oncology Co-Director of the Breast Cancer Program
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Dr. Stearns joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2002 and is best known for her ground-breaking work on the pharmacogenetics of tamoxifen and the use of biomarkers to implement new interventions for breast cancer treatment and prevention. Her research focuses on agents that target epigenetic modifications in breast cancer and gene methylation as a prognostic and predictive marker in breast cancer and she is internationally recognized for her research in improving therapeutic options for women who suffer vasomotor symptoms as well as elucidating the role of pharmacogenetics and tamoxifen-related outcomes.
Originally from Israel, Dr. Stearns started a 7-year medical school program at the Tel-Aviv University in 1985 through an academic reserve program. She transferred to the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, at Camden, New Jersey, as a third year medical student where she was awarded her medical degree in 1992. She completed her internal medicine residency and fellowship training at Georgetown University where she trained under some of the most influential leaders in translational breast cancer research. During that time, Vered was one of the first investigators in the world to perform biomarker studies with novel therapies in the pre-surgical setting.
As a clinician, Dr. Stearns sees patients as an attending physician on the inpatient service and for outpatient consultations. She also supervises fellows, residents, and medical students in outpatient and inpatient services.
Dr. Stearns also leads an active research team at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and helped build the multidisciplinary breast cancer program. She was also instrumental in building the multidisciplinary translational research team and the infrastructure for innovative early clinical trials.
