Toremifene to reduce fracture risk in men receiving androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer. [2010.10]
PURPOSE: Androgen deprivation therapy is associated with fracture risk in men with prostate cancer. We assessed the effects of toremifene, a selective estrogen receptor modulator, on fracture incidence in men receiving androgen deprivation therapy during a 2-year period... CONCLUSIONS: Toremifene significantly decreased the incidence of new vertebral fractures in men receiving androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer. It also significantly improved bone mineral density, bone turnover markers and serum lipid profiles. Copyright (c) 2010 American Urological Association Education and Research, Inc.

Effects of toremifene and tamoxifen on lipid profiles in post-menopausal patients with early breast cancer: interim results from a Japanese phase III trial. [2010.07]
OBJECTIVE: Toremifene and tamoxifen have been used for adjuvant therapy in post-menopausal patients with breast cancer in Japan. Dyslipidemias are common in post-menopausal women. However, limited data are available on the effects of these agents on lipid profiles in Japanese patients. The Japan Toremifene Cooperative Study Group has been conducting a Phase III randomized trial of post-menopausal patients with breast cancer. One of its secondary endpoints is to confirm the effects of these agents on serum lipid profiles... CONCLUSIONS: Distinct differences between two selective estrogen receptor modulators on lipids were observed. Toremifene improved lipid profiles, particularly as an enhancer of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. To a large extent, tamoxifen improved low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. The impact of these improved lipid profiles on the risk of cardiovascular diseases needs further confirmation.

Treatment and Survival Continuation Study of Atamestane Plus Toremifene vs Letrozole in Advanced Breast Cancer [Terminated]
Protocol 777-CLP-32 is the treatment and survival continuation protocol of Biomed
777-CLP-29, and will continue to compare combined hormonal therapy using the experimental
aromatase inhibitor (AI) atamestane combined with the FDA-approved anti-estrogen toremifene

the treatment of advanced breast cancer. The purpose of this study is to determine whether
maximal estrogen suppression achieved via the combination of atamestane, plus toremifene
(Fareston«), is more effective than letrozole (Femara┬«) in delaying the growth of breast
