The primary purpose of this study is to compare changes in the expression of the proliferation marker Ki-67 in malignant breast tissue after treatment with tibolone or placebo in postmenopausal women who need to undergo surgery for primary breast cancer

Active Comparator: Arm 1
Postmenopausal women of any age, requiring surgery for early invasive primary breast cancer, with estrogen receptor-positive tumor(s). Treated with tibolone
one tablet of 2.5 mg tibolone, per day, every day, for 14 ± 2 days (until the day before surgery).
Other Name: Livial®
Placebo Comparator: Arm 2
Postmenopausal women of any age, requiring surgery for early invasive primary breast cancer, with estrogen receptor-positive tumor(s). Treated with placebo
Subjects were to take one tablet of tibolone-matched placebo, per day, every day, for 14 ± 2 days (until the day before surgery).
Primary Outcome Measures :
- The primary objective of this trial was to compare changes in the expression of the proliferation marker Ki-67 in malignant breast tissue after treatment with tibolone or placebo. [ Time Frame: The primary outcome measure, the proliferation marker Ki-67, was measured at screening (from the screening biopsy) and about 14 days later (from the surgically removed breast tumour tissue) ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
- Apoptosis index; estrogen/progesterone/androgen receptors & isoforms; bcl-2, bax; pS2; SOX4; Apolipoprotein D; Angiogenesis parameters; estrogen levels, tibolone and tibolone metabolites. [ Time Frame: Outcome parameters were measured during the trial as samples were received and at the end of the clinical phase. ]
