Brief Summary:

This is a multi-center, Israeli phase II open label study evaluating treatment with RAD001 (10 mg daily) combined with letrozole (2.5 mg daily) in postmenopausal women after recurrence or progression on Tamoxifen, Anastrozole or Examestane.

There are no treatments specifically approved after recurrence or progression on AIs. Available options, based on common clinical practice and several treatment guidelines (e.g. NCCN treatment guidelines 2008), include fulvestrant.

Combining RAD001 with letrazole is a rational approach to the treatment of advanced Brest Cancer, offering the potential for inhibition of tumor cell growth\ proliferation and anti angiogenesis while at the same time potentially preventing the development of letrazole resistance.
