Groups/Cohorts
ER expression : Low
Patients were postmenopausal women with hormone receptor positive breast cancer. All patients should be 3 or 4 point of total Allred score.
ER expression : Intermediate
Patients were postmenopausal women with hormone receptor positive breast cancer. All patients should be 5 or 6 point of total Allred score.
ER expression : High
Patients were postmenopausal women with hormone receptor positive breast cancer. All patients should be 7 or 8 point of total Allred score.

Detailed Description:

This study aimed at evaluating following:

  1. Validity Assessment:

    1. Primary End Point: To evaluate 5-year diseae free survival rate after Letrozole treatment according to the estrogen receptor expression in postmenopausal women
    2. Secondary End Point: To evaluate overall survival rate(OS) and Time to distance recurrence(TTDR) after Hormonal therapy in postmenopausal women with hormone receptor positive breast cancer
  2. Safety Assessment: To evaluate all adverse events including serious adverse events after Letrozole treatment.
