RATIONALE: Estrogen can stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using triptorelin, exemestane, and tamoxifen may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen. It is not yet known whether giving triptorelin together with exemestane is more effective than triptorelin and tamoxifen in treating hormone-responsive breast cancer.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying triptorelin and exemestane to see how well they work compared to triptorelin and tamoxifen in treating premenopausal women with hormone-responsive breast cancer.

Condition Intervention Phase
Breast Cancer
Drug: exemestane
Drug: tamoxifen citrate

Study Start Date: August 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Arm I
Beginning after the completion of adjuvant chemotherapy or approximately 6-8 weeks after the initiation of triptorelin, patients receive oral tamoxifen daily.
Drug: tamoxifen citrate
Given orally
Experimental: Arm II
Beginning after the completion of adjuvant chemotherapy or approximately 6-8 weeks after the initiation of triptorelin, patients also receive oral exemestane daily.
Drug: exemestane
Given orally

Detailed Description:


  • Compare the disease-free and overall survival of premenopausal women with endocrine-responsive breast cancer when treated with triptorelin and exemestane vs triptorelin and tamoxifen.
  • Compare the quality of life, including late side effects of early menopause, of patients treated with these regimens.
  • Compare the sites of first treatment failure in patients treated with these regimens.
  • Compare the incidence of second (non-breast) malignancies in patients treated with these regimens.
  • Compare causes of death without cancer event

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to participating center, concurrent adjuvant chemotherapy (yes vs no), and number of positive axillary and/or internal mammary lymph nodes (0 vs 1 or more). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

  • Arm I: Patients receive triptorelin intramuscularly on day 1 every 28 days. Patients in the adjuvant chemotherapy stratum receive chemotherapy concurrently with triptorelin for at least 2 months (if anthracycline is included) or at least 4 months (if no anthracycline is included). Beginning after the completion of chemotherapy or approximately 6-8 weeks after the initiation of triptorelin, patients receive oral tamoxifen daily.
  • Arm II: Patients receive triptorelin as in arm I. Beginning after the completion of adjuvant chemotherapy or approximately 6-8 weeks after the initiation of triptorelin, patients also receive oral exemestane daily.

In both arms, treatment continues for 5 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Quality of life is assessed at baseline, every 6 months for 2 years, and annually for 3 years.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 5 years, and then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 2,639 patients will be accrued for this study.
