Data from the years 2000 and 2005 National Health Interview Surveys were analyzed to estimate the prevalence of tamoxifen use among U.S. women for primary chemoprevention of breast cancer.

Endocrine therapy forms a central modality in the treatment of estrogen receptor positive breast cancer. The routine use of 5 years of adjuvant tamoxifen has improved survival rates for early breast cancer, and more recently has evolved in the postmenopausal setting to include aromatase inhibitors. The optimal duration of adjuvant endocrine therapy remains an active area of clinical study with recent data supporting 10 years rather than 5 years of adjuvant tamoxifen. However, endocrine therapy is limited by the development of resistance, this can occur by a number of possible mechanisms and numerous studies have been performed which combine endocrine therapy with agents that modulate these mechanisms with the aim of preventing or delaying the emergence of resistance. Recent trial data regarding the combination of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor, everolimus with endocrine therapy have resulted in a redefinition of the clinical treatment pathway in the metastatic setting. This review details the current endocrine therapy utilized in both early and advanced disease, as well as exploring potential new targets which modulate pathways of resistance, as well as agents which aim to modulate adrenal derived steroidogenic hormones.

Neoadjuvant endocrine therapy is becoming increasingly popular as a safe and effective alternative to chemotherapy in selected patients. Large randomized studies have been published comparing tamoxifen with steroidal and nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitors, with favorable results for aromatase inhibitors letrozole, anastrozole, and exemestane. Endocrine therapy can be used in the neoadjuvant setting for conversion of inoperable breast tumors to operable, and from potential mastectomy to breast-conserving surgery. The use of endocrine agents in this setting also provides an opportunity for the study of their biological effects upon tumor.

Cox-proportional hazards analysis failed to show an association between AI use and subsequent diabetes onset after adjusting for age, race, and comorbidity (hazard ratio: 0.99; 95% confidence interval: 0.84-1.18). This study also failed to show an association between tamoxifen use and diabetes onset (hazard ratio: 0.79; 95% confidence interval: 0.54-1.17).

Phosphatidylcholine is made in all nucleated mammalian cells via the CDP-choline pathway. Another major pathway for phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis in liver is catalyzed by phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PEMT). We have now identified 3T3-L1 adipocytes as a cell culture model that expresses PEMT endogenously. We have found that PEMT mRNA and protein levels increased dramatically in 3T3-L1 cells upon differentiation to adipocytes. 5'-Deletion analysis of the PEMT promoter-luciferase constructs stably expressed in 3T3-L1 adipocytes identified a regulatory region between -471 and -371 bp (relative to the transcriptional start site). Competitive and supershift assays demonstrated binding sites for transcription factors Sp1, Sp3 (-408 to -413), and YY1 (-417 to -420). During differentiation of 3T3-L1 cells to adipocytes, the amount of Sp1 protein decreased by approximately 50% just prior to activation of PEMT. Transduction of 3T3-L1 adipocytes with retrovirus containing Sp1 cDNA demonstrated that Sp1 inhibited PEMT transcriptional activity. Similarly, short hairpin RNA directed against Sp1 in 3T3-L1 adipocytes enhanced PEMT transcriptional activation. Chromatin immunoprecipitation assays confirmed that Sp1 binds to the PEMT promoter, and this interaction decreases upon differentiation to adipocytes. These experiments directly link increased PEMT expression in adipocytes to decreased transcriptional expression of Sp1. In addition, our data established that Sp1 binding was required for tamoxifen-mediated inhibition of Pemt promoter activity.

Current predictors for estrogen receptor-positive (ER-positive) breast cancer patients receiving tamoxifen are often invalid in inter-laboratory validation. We aim to develop a robust predictor based on the relative ordering of expression measurement (ROE) in gene pairs. Using a large integrated dataset of 420 normal controls and 1,129 ER-positive breast tumor samples, we identified the gene pairs with stable ROEs in normal control and significantly reversed ROEs in ER-positive tumor. Using these gene pairs, we characterized each sample of a cohort of 292 ER-positive patients who received tamoxifen monotherapy for 5 years and then identified relapse risk-associated gene pairs. We extracted a gene pair subset that resulted in the largest positive and negative predictive values for predicting 10-year relapse-free survival (RFS) using a genetic algorithm. A predictor was developed based on the gene pair subset and was validated in 2 large multi-laboratory cohorts (N = 250 and 248, respectively) of ER-positive patients who received 5-year tamoxifen alone. In the first validation cohort, the patients predicted to be tamoxifen sensitive had a 10-year RFS of 91 % (95 % confidence interval [CI] 85-97 %) with an absolute risk reduction of 34 % (95 % CI 17-51 %). The patients predicted to be tamoxifen insensitive had a significantly higher relapse risk than the patients predicted to be tamoxifen sensitive (hazard ratio = 4.99, 95 % CI 2.45-10.17, P = 9.13 × 10(-7)). Similar performance was achieved for the second validation cohort. The predictor performed well in both node-negative and node-positive subsets and added significant predictive power to the clinical parameters. In contrast, 2 previously proposed predictors did not achieve significantly better performances than the baselines of the validation cohorts. In summary, the proposed predictor can accurately and robustly predict tamoxifen sensitivity of ER-positive breast cancer patients and identified patients with a high probability of 10-year RFS following tamoxifen monotherapy.

It is uncertain whether evidence supports routinely estimating a postmenopausal woman's risk of breast cancer and intervening to reduce risk.

Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumors (FFPETs) are a valuable source of DNA for genotype association studies and are often the only germline DNA resource from cancer clinical trials. The anti-estrogen tamoxifen is metabolized into endoxifen by CYP2D6, leading to the hypothesis that patients with certain CYP2D6 genotypes may not receive benefit because of their inability to activate the drug. Studies testing this hypothesis using FFPETs have provided conflicting results. It has been postulated that CYP2D6 genotype determined using FFPET may not be accurate because of somatic tumor alterations. In this study, we determined the concordance between CYP2D6 genotypes generated using 3 tissue sources (FFPETs; formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded unaffected lymph nodes [FFPELNs]; and whole blood cells [WBCs]) from 122 breast cancer patients. Compared with WBCs, FFPET and FFPELN genotypes were highly concordant (>94%), as were the predicted CYP2D6 metabolic phenotypes (>97%). We conclude that CYP2D6 genotypes obtained from FFPETs accurately represent the patient's CYP2D6 metabolic phenotype.

The main purpose of the this study was to find the candidate cis-elements in negative regulation region throngh analysing the DNA sequences of lrp16 gene promoter so as to provide the experimental basis for screening drugs with inhibitory effect on lrp16 gene expression. The open reading frame (ORF) sequences in uncoding DNA and mRNA sequences of 5' flanking region in lrp16 gene were cloned by the data in GeneBank and Internet; the possibly existing cis-element in thsi region was searched in databank of human transcriptional factor by using TESS and Genomax online promoter analysis software; the drugs related to inhibition of lrp16 gene expression were screened by using SAGE and GEO databank. The results showed that there were many cis-elements in the negative regulation region, including T-Ag, PU.1, c-Ets, XPF-1, P2 alphaA, IL6-6RE and RAR. In cultured cell lines, hormone or its inhibitor such as corticosteroid, tamoxifen, forskolin, phenylephrine, inflammatory factors such as IFNgamma and TNFalpha, and chemotherapeutics 5-fluorouracil could down-regulate the lrp16 gene expression as compared with absent ones. It is concluded that cis-elements including T-Ag, PU.1, c-Ets, XPF-1, P2 alphaA, IL6-6RE and RAR may inhibit lrp16 expression and hormone or its inhibitor such as corticosteroid, tamoxifen, forskolin, phenylephrine, inflammatory factors such as IL6, IFNgamma and TNFalpha, and chemotherapeutics 5-fluorouracil may participate in the regulation of lrp16 gene expression in negative manner.
