Evaluation of Antiproliferative Effects of Arimidex in Ductal Lavage Fluid in Patients With Breast Cancer
The goal of this study is to evaluate antiproliferative effects of Arimidex in ductal lavage fluids of Breast Cancer patients.
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer incidence and the second leading cause of cancer mortality in women. Breast duct fluid provide biomarkers to aid in risk assessment of developing breast cancer.
