Antihormone Therapy in Recurrent Metastatic Breast Cancer—Reply

JAMA. 2008;299(23):2745. doi:10.1001/jama.299.23.2745-b

In Reply: Dr Pritchard is correct: a person with hormone receptor–positive breast cancer would likely receive antihormone therapy for recurrent metastatic disease and would remain on a given agent if tolerated until the disease worsened or recurred. For Ms H, that would have meant starting tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor at the first recurrence and then switching to the other when disease worsened. Although the authors of the article were provided with detailed information on Ms H's radiation and surgical therapies, we do not know whether she received antihormone therapies.
