A Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic Model of Tamoxifen and Endoxifen to Predict Their Distribution and Effects on Inhibition of Tumor Growth
Conclusion: We established a PK-PD model of tamoxifen and endoxifen to predict the tumor growth. The parameters of the pharmacodynamic model, which characterized the tumor growth, revealed the patterns of tamoxifen's anti-tumor functions. The PK-PD model successfully provided illustration for the pharmacokinetics of tamoxifen and endoxifen, and predicted the inhibition effect of endoxifen on the tumor growth.
The European committee recommended against approval of neratinib (Nerlynx) for breast cancer, even though the drug has been approved in the United States.International Approvals

Randi Fishman was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 28 and didn't think she would ever have kids.
(Reuters) - A European Medicines Agency (EMA) panel on Friday recommended against approving Puma Biotechnology's lead breast cancer drug, an outcome the U.S drugmaker had signaled last month.
According to this study: Current or recent users of hormonal contraceptives are at higher risk for breast cancer than women who have never used hormonal contraceptives.The risk increases with the duration of use.
Conclusions: Although an uncommon tumor, MMMTs are often found in women with breast cancer. Despite this finding, BRCA1 or BRCA2 germline mutations are not common in this population. Precis: Ovarian MMMTs are frequently found in women with cancer but are not frequently associated with defects in BRCA1 or BRCA2.
Conclusions: Decisions regarding the use of HT in women who undergo BSO after detection of a BRCA mutation must be individualized based on careful consideration of the risks and benefits. However, the risks of a subsequent cancer diagnosis appear small, particularly in regards to the benefits of treatment afforded by HT.
