Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Suppressive Effect of Serum Estradiol (E2) to Menopausal Level (=<30 pg/mL) From Week 4 Through Week 48 [ Time Frame: Week 4 up to Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Comparison of both the treatment groups was done by assessing the suppressive effect on serum E2 concentration maintained at menopausal level (=<30pg/mL). Suppression rate was calculated as proportion of participants maintained at menopausal level.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Concentration of Serum E2 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Hour (hr) 1, 3, 6 on Day 1, Day 2, 3, 4, 8, 15, 22, 29, 57, 85, 113, 141, 169, 176, 183, 197, 225, 253, 281, 309, 337, 421, 505, 589 and 673 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The measure indicates serum E2 concentration at baseline and post-baseline time points.

  • Concentration of Serum Luteinizing Hormone (LH) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Hour 1, 3, 6 on Day 1, Day 2, 3, 4, 8, 15, 22, 29, 57, 85, 113, 141, 169, 176, 183, 197, 225, 253, 281, 309, 337, 421, 505, 589 and 673 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This measure indicates serum LH concentration at baseline and post-baseline time points. It was measured in milli-international units per milliliter (mIU/mL).

  • Concentration of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Hour 1, 3, 6 on Day 1, Day 2, 3, 4, 8, 15, 22, 29, 57, 85, 113, 141, 169, 176, 183, 197, 225, 253, 281, 309, 337, 421, 505, 589 and 673 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This measure indicates serum FSH concentration at baseline and post-baseline time points.

  • Disease Free Survival (DFS) Rate at Week 96 [ Time Frame: Week 96 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DFS is defined as time from randomization to earliest day of onset the events, recurrence [including recurrence in the ipsilateral breast], secondary cancer [including breast cancer in the contralateral breast] and death. DFS at Week 96 was defined as the percentage, calculated with Kaplan-Meier method, of participants did not experience any events at Week 96 since the randomization.

  • Distant Disease Free Survival (DDFS) Rate at Week 96 [ Time Frame: Week 96 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DDFS is defined as time from randomization to earliest day of onset the events, distant recurrence, secondary cancer [including breast cancer in the contralateral breast] and death. DDFS at week 96 was defined as the percentage calculated with Kaplan-Meier method, of participants did not experience any events at week 96 since the randomization.

  • Serum Unchanged TAP-144 Level [ Time Frame: Baseline, Hour 1, 3, 6 on Day 1, Day 2, 3, 4, 8, 15, 22, 29, 57, 85, 113, 141, 169, 176, 183, 197, 225, 253, 281, 309 and 337 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This measure indicates the unchanged TAP-144 level in serum.

  • QT Interval Measured by 12-lead Electrocardiogram (ECG) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Hour 1, 3, 6 on Day 1, Day 29, 85, 169 and 337 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    12-lead electrocardiography measurement was performed in supine position after 5 minutes at rest. Each measurement was recorded continuously for 10 seconds at the recording speed of 25 millimeter/second (mm/second).

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. The participant has histopathologically-confirmed primary breast cancer in Japanese.
  2. The participant is aged 20 years or older when informed consent is obtained

  4. The participant has breast cancer in the clinical stages of T1-T3, N-any and M0 by TNM classification (the seventh edition, proposed by UICC in 2009). (No distant metastasis to lung, liver and bone should be confirmed on the image-based diagnosis at study enrollment. The image taken within 12 weeks prior to study enrollment is also available for the diagnosis.) The number of axillary lymph node metastasis is not limited.
  5. Any operative procedure for breast cancer is acceptable. In principle, after breast-conserving surgery, the participant will receive postoperative radiation to the conserving breast.

The participant has not had a chemical menopause (i.e., FSH of less than 40 mIU/mL and E2 of 10 pg/mL or more) within 12 weeks after completing adjuvant chemotherapy.
  8. The participant is in a condition to receive study drug and Tamoxifen (TAM) within 12 weeks after surgery or after adjuvant chemotherapy prior to study enrollment. Adjuvant chemotherapy prior to study is required to have been completed at the time of study enrollment.
  9. The participant has ECOG performance status of grades 0 or 1 at the time of study enrollment.

    • Hepatic function: AST (GOT) ≤ 3.0 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) ALT (GPT) ≤ 3.0 times the ULN
    • Renal function: serum creatinine level < 1.5 times the ULN
    • Bone marrow function : white blood cell count ≥ 3,000/mm3 platelet count ≥ 100,000/μL hemoglobin ≥ 10.0g/dL

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. The participant has received neoadjuvant or adjuvant hormonal therapy for the latest breast cancer surgery.
