An estimated 7350 deaths attributable to cancer of the uterine corpus are expected in In this country, cancer of the endometrium is the most common cancer found in women’s reproductive organs.Diagnosed primarily in postmenopausal women, most endometrial cancer is detected at an early stage because abnormal vaginal bleeding is an early sign of this cancer.The 1-year survival rate for endometrial cancer is 94%. 5-year survival for women with Stage I disease is 90-95%. When endometrial cancer is diagnosed with Stage II, Stage III or Stage IV disease, the 5-year survival rates are 75%, 60% and 15-24%, respectively.High cumulative exposure to estrogen is the primary risk factor for endometrial cancer. Factors that substantially increase a woman’s exposure to estrogen include obesity and estrogen therapy without adequate use of progestin. Other factors that increase risk of endometrial cancer include use of tamoxifen, early menarche, late menopause, nulliparity, and a personal history of polycystic ovary syndrome.Concomitant E+P has not been associated with an increased risk of endometrial cancer; whereas, E alone has.American Cancer Society.

The women were followed for an average of 3.4 years, during which time 1320 incident endometrial cancers were diagnosed.1As shown in this slide, compared with never-users, risk of endometrial cancer was: reduced with use of continuous combined HT; increased with use of unopposed estrogen and tibolone; and not significantly altered with use of cyclic combined HT.Interestingly, BMI significantly affected these associations, such that the adverse effects of tibolone and unopposed estrogen were greatest in nonobese women, and the beneficial effects of combined HT were greatest in obese women. (See next slide.)These findings are consistent with earlier meta-analyses and randomized trialsA meta-analysis of 29 observational studies of unopposed E and endometrial cancer incidence found a combined RR for unopposed E users compared with nonusers of 2.3 (95% CI, 2.1–2.5).2A meta-analysis of 7 studies evaluating the effects of E+P on endometrial cancer incidence reported an RR of 0.8 (95% CI, 0.6–1.2).3Neither WHI4 nor HERS5 reported an increase in endometrial cancer with a daily regimen of E+P.*Type of HT last used, self-reported at recruitment.Million Women Study Collaborators.

This rate is lower than the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results population-based rate of 92 cases per 100,000 person-years in women in the same age range as the WHI participants.2The WHI investigators found no differences between treatment groups in histology, grade, or stage of disease at diagnosis. In addition, no significant interactions between group assignment and any of the following variables were observed: age, race/ethnicity, BMI, hypertension, smoking status, pack-years of smoking, prior exposure to unopposed E, or prior use of E+P.1In summary, there was an observed difference in endometrial cancer rates between E+P and placebo, although the difference in incidence rates was not statistically significant.The authors noted that the WHI was the first randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to demonstrate that endometrial cancer rates among women assigned to continuous E+P are similar to those observed in women assigned to placebo.1Hazard RatioIncidence rate of endometrial cancer for the total study population was 62 cases per 100,000 person-years.Anderson GL, et al.

8 HT and Risk of Endometrial Cancer: Summary 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyHT and Risk of Endometrial Cancer: SummaryUnopposed estrogen increases endometrial cancer risk in postmenopausal women with an intact uterusEstrogen in combination with a progestin has not been associated with increased endometrial cancer risk and some observational studies have noted a potential protective effect.Progestin use must be for >10 days per monthWHI did not find a significant reduction in endometrial cancer risk in E+P groupObservational studies have shown trends in endometrial cancer incidence in women taking E+P, implying variable effects upon endometrial cancer risk.Possibly related to BMI; progestin provides greatest protection in obese women; on average, subjects in E+P trial were overweight but not obeseProgestin has been used in combination with E in HT for several decades to reduce the risk of E associated endometrial cancer, with many studies and meta-analyses supporting its risk reducing role and some observational studies have noted a potential protective effect. In order for the progestin to reduce the E associated risk of endometrial cancer, it must be used for longer than 10 days per cycle.In WHI, there was a decrease in endometrial cancer in the E+P group compared with placebo (HR, 0.81), but the difference was not statistically significant.1 Failure to demonstrate a decreased risk of endometrial cancer among E+P users in the WHI may be related to an effect of BMI. Observational studies have shown trends in endometrial cancer incidence in women taking E+P, implying variable effects upon endometrial cancer risk. Studies suggest that the protective effect of progestin is greatest in obese women. On average, the women in WHI E+P trial were overweight but not obese.1Anderson GL, et al. JAMA. 2003;290:

As indicated by the plots, the difference in incidence began to emerge early in the first year of follow-up, suggesting an effect of E+P on established cancers.The invasive colorectal cancers in the E+P and placebo groups were similar in location, tumor grade, and histologic features (ie, adenocarcinoma, not otherwise specified; in adenomatous polyp; in tubulovillous adenoma; or in villous adenoma). However, cancers in the E+P group had a greater number of positive lymph nodes (mean ± SD, 3.2 ± 4.1 vs 0.8 ± 1.7; P = .002), compared with placebo, and were more advanced (regional or metastatic disease, 76.2% vs 48.5%; P = .004). The reasons for these differences are unknown. It should be noted that no difference in mortality was observed between the E+P and placebo groups.Exploratory analyses indicated that among those women in the E+P group who were diagnosed with colorectal cancer, those with antecedent vaginal bleeding had cancers with a greater number of positive nodes, compared with those women who did not have vaginal bleeding (3.8 ± 4.3 vs 0.7 ± 1.5, P = .006). Abdominal pain, a change in bowel habits, and rectal bleeding are common symptoms in patients who present with colorectal cancer. The authors speculated that in some women assigned to E+P, perineal bleeding may have been perceived as vaginal bleeding which could have led to a delay in seeking care and a higher rate of advanced cancers in the E+P group.Given this possibility, wider implementation of bowel screening among postmenopausal women using HT was recommended. The American Cancer Society recently reported that the proportion of the US population 50 years and older that has been screened for colorectal cancer remains low (less than 50%).2Chlebowski RT, et al.

13 Reduced Risk of Death From Colorectal Cancer in Ever-Users of HT 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyReduced Risk of Death From Colorectal Cancer in Ever-Users of HTCalle et al, 1995Sturgeon et al, 1995Persson et al, 1996Meta-analysis: Nanda et al, 1999Several observational studies and a meta-analysis have examined the relationship between HT and colorectal cancer mortality and incidence.1-4Calle et al1 investigated 897 colon cancer-related deaths among 422,373 postmenopausal women. Approximately 33% of the women who died had a history of HT use. Ever-use of HT was associated with a decreased risk of fatal colon cancer (RR, 0.71; 95% CI, 0.61–0.83); the effect was strongest among recent and long-term users.Sturgeon et al2 evaluated colon cancer-related deaths among a cohort of 49,000 women. A total of 1,824 deaths occurred among the participants (807 deaths among HT users and 1,017 deaths among never-users); 647 deaths were cancer related. Among HT users, 43 deaths were related to colon cancer versus 46 deaths among never-users (RR, 0.8; 95% CI, 0.6–1.3 compared with never-users).Persson and colleagues3 followed a cohort of 22,597 Swedish HT users for 13 years to evaluate colon cancer incidence and mortality in this population. Eight hundred forty-eight cancer deaths occurred, of which 62 (7.3%) were related to colon cancer. These investigators reported that HT users had a decreased risk of dying from colon cancer compared with nonusers (RR, 0.7; 95% CI, 0.5–0.9).A meta-analysis by Nanda and colleagues4 looked at the association between HT and risk of developing or dying from colorectal cancer. The investigators found that HT users had a reduced risk of dying from colon cancer compared with nonusers (RR, 0.72; 95% CI, 0.64–0.81). They also found that recent HT users had a reduced risk of developing colon cancer (RR, 0.67; 95% CI, 0.59–0.77) compared with never-users. The reduction in risk for ever-users was not statistically significant. Duration of use was also not a significant factor.0.51.0102.0Relative Risk (95% CI)1Calle EE, et al.

15 Ovarian Cancer 20,180 new cases expected in the US in 2006 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyOvarian Cancer20,180 new cases expected in the US in 2006Accounts for 3% of all cancers in women2nd most common gynecologic cancer15,310 deaths from ovarian cancer expected in 2006Causes more deaths than cervical and uterine cancer combined; ranks 5th in cancer deaths among women.Risk increases with age; peaks in late 70s~2/3 of diagnosed women are over age 50Mutations of BRCA genes increase a woman’s lifetime risk to 26% (BRCA1) and 10% (BRCA2)Use of oral contraceptives reduces riskprimarily related to pre-menopausal useAccording to the American Cancer Society, ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecologic cancer and is expected to account for 3% of new cancer cases in 2006 and 6% of cancer deaths in women.1An estimated 20,180 new cases of ovarian cancer will be diagnosed in the US in 2006, and 15,310 women are expected to die from the disease this year.1Risk increases as women approach their late 70s and early 80s, and almost 50% of patients will be 65 years or older. Pregnancy, tubal ligation, and the use of oral contraceptives reduce a woman’s risk of ovarian cancer. 2Family history is a primary risk factor for ovarian cancer. Women with a first-degree relative (mother, daughter, or sister) with ovarian cancer have an elevated risk of developing the disease themselves. Women with two or more first-degree relatives with ovarian cancer have even higher risk. 3Mutations of BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes increase a woman’s lifetime risk for ovarian cancer to 26% (BRCA1) and 10% (BRCA2).4 These mutations are also associated with a substantially increased risk for breast cancer.Age at time of diagnosis influences survival. Women younger than 65 years of age have nearly double the 5-year survival rate of women 65 years and older (56% vs 29%). Overall, 1- and 5-year survival rates for newly diagnosed patients are 77% and 44%, respectively.1When diagnosed at a localized stage IA, 5-year survival is 92.7%. Only 19% of cases are detected at this stage.15-year survival rates for women with regional and distant metastases at the time of diagnosis are 69% and 29%, respectively.1Over the past 20 years, ovarian cancer incidence and mortality has declined for younger generations in most developing countries, particularly those where oral contraceptive use spread earlier. The overall estimated protection from cohort and case control studies is approximately 30% for ever OC users, and increases with duration of use by ~5% per year of use to ~50% for long term use of 10 or more years.5 The favorable effects persists for at least 20 years after OC use has ceased and is not confined to any particular OC formulation. The reduced risk is observed in women with or without family history or genetic predisposition to ovarian cancer.5American Cancer Society.

This rate is lower than the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results population-based rate of 52 cases per 100,000 person-years in women in the same age range as the WHI participants.2The WHI investigators found no differences between treatment groups in histology, grade, or stage of disease at diagnosis. In addition, no significant interactions between group assignment and any of the following variables were observed: age, race/ethnicity, body mass index (BMI), family history of breast or ovarian cancer, family history of colorectal cancer, prior use of oral contraceptives, prior exposure to E alone, or prior use of E+P.1In summary, the incidence of ovarian cancer among E+P users in the WHI was somewhat greater than that observed in the placebo group, although the difference was small and not statistically significant.The authors concluded that continuous combined E+P may increase the risk of ovarian cancer. They added, however, that due to the low rates of ovarian and other gynecologic cancers in the study population and the limited precision of the risk estimates, “the results should not have an appreciable influence on most women’s decision-making when seeking relief for moderate-to-severe vasomotor symptoms.”1Hazard RatioIncidence rate of invasive ovarian cancer for the total study population was 34 cases per 100,000 person-years.Anderson GL, et al.

HT did not appear to adversely influence the risk of ovarian cancer in BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers. Compared to those who never used HT, the odds ratio associated with ever use of HT was 0.93 (95% CI= ) and the odds ratio associated with BRCA1 ever use, or BRCA2 ever use was 1.13 [95% CI ( )] and 1.08 [95% CI ( )] respectively.1Women who had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer were matched to control subjects by mutation, year of birth, and age at menopause. Information of HT use Was derived from a questionnaire routinely administered to women who were found to be carriers of a mutation in either gene. Only women who reached natural menopause were included in this study.While the possibility of recall bias cannot be excluded in self-reported exclusion data, others have shown a high level of concordance between HT use obtained through a questionnaire and information obtained from prescription forms.2 Adding to its strength, the study was based on known mutation carriers and included patients from numerous participating centers and of different ethnic backgrounds.Kotsopoulos J et al.

19 HT and Ovarian Cancer Risk: Summary 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyHT and Ovarian Cancer Risk: SummaryResearch findings are inconsistent for post-menopausal use.If increased risk exists, it is small and difficult to demonstrate from study to studyPossible weak association with long-term (>10 years) use of unopposed E, but data are inconclusiveOverall, data are not sufficient for clinical recommendations1Due to inconsistencies in the available data, the association between HT use and ovarian cancer outcomes requires further investigation.Small differences in risk from study to study could be explained by varying distribution of other factors that influence the risk of ovarian cancer in the populations under study. Examples of these factors include duration of oral contraceptive use, infertility, fertility drug use, number of pregnancies, and duration of breast feeding .Pre-menopausal use of oral contraceptives (E+P) appears protective and any contradictory findings may possibly be due to differences in the pre- and post-menopausal state.1 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

20 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyBreast Cancer Among women in the US, breast cancer is the most common diagnosed non-skin cancer and the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related deaths. National Cancer Institute 2006 estimates: 212,920 new cases of breast cancer and 40,970 deaths A woman’s risk of developing breast cancer in her life time is currently estimated to be 1 in 7.56 (1 in 8) irrespective of HT useAmong women, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer after nonmelanoma skin cancer, and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths after lung cancer. In 2006, an estimated 212,920 new cases will be diagnosed, and 40,970 deaths from breast cancer will occur. The age-adjusted incidence rate was per 100,000 women per year. These rates are based on cases diagnosed in from 17 SEER geographic areas.1-3Well-established factors for increased risk of breast cancer include: personal history of breast cancer (in situ or invasive), family history and BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carrier status, advanced age, nulliparity, late first parity, early menarche, late menopause, ionizing radiation exposure, hormone therapy [HT] (primarily associated with combination estrogen + progestin), obesity in non-HT users, alcohol consumption (dose-dependent increased risk).2current National Cancer Institute (NCI) statistics show that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime regardless of whether HT is used.3National Cancer Institute:1Ries LAG, Eisner MP, Kosary CL, et al.

22 Risk of Breast Cancer Changes With a Woman’s Age 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyRisk of Breast Cancer Changes With a Woman’s AgeAge (years)Probability of Developing Breast Cancer Within 10 Years200.05% (1 in 2044)300.40% (1 in 249)401.49% (1 in 67)502.77% (1 in 36)603.45% (1 in 29)704.16% (1 in 24)A woman’s risk of breast cancer increases with age. As shown, risk of breast cancer is less than one half of 1% for a woman under 30 years of age, but risk increases more than 10-fold for a 70-year-old woman.1Thus, a 20% to 40% increased risk of breast cancer results in a much different increase in absolute risk in women around age 50 years compared with women around age 70 years or older.NCI Update 2006 shows little change: A woman’s chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer is: from age 30 through age 39, 0.44% (1 in 229);from age 40 through age 49, 1.46% (1 in 68);from age 50 through age 59, 2.73% (1 in 37);from age 60 through age 69, 3.82% (1 in 26).2From , the median age at diagnosis for cancer of the breast was 61 years of age. Approximately 0.0% were diagnosed under age 20; 1.9% between 20 and 34; 10.6% between 35 and 44; 22.1% between 45 and 54; 22.8% between 55 and 64; 20.4% between 65 and 74; 16.8% between 75 and 84; and 5.4% 85+ years of age.2American Cancer Society, Surveillance Research, Breast Cancer Facts and Figures 2001– Available at: http//www.cancer.org/downloads/STT/BrCaFF2001.pdf.1American Cancer Society, Surveillance Research, Breast Cancer Facts and Figures 2001–2002.

26 Absolute Risk of Breast Cancer in the General Population 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyAbsolute Risk of Breast Cancer in the General PopulationEach 50-year-old woman has approximately a 2.8% chance of developing breast cancer by age 60 yearsThis translates to an absolute risk of 2.8 per 100 womenAll Women Aged 50 Years in the General Population— Risk for Breast Cancer by Age 60 YearsIn 100 women, 2.8 are at riskTo address patients’ confusion regarding breast cancer risk, it may be helpful to discuss a woman’s absolute risk of breast cancer, with or without HT.Absolute risk is the overall incidence of a disease in a given population. For example, Feuer and colleagues estimated that a 50-year-old woman has a 2.8% chance of developing breast cancer before she turns 60 years of age. Therefore, among 100 women, 2.8 are at risk for breast cancer.American Cancer Society, Surveillance Research, Breast Cancer Facts and Figures 2001– Available at: http//www.cancer.org/downloads/STT/BrCaFF2001.pdf.American Cancer Society, Surveillance Research, Breast Cancer Facts and Figures 2001–2002.

27 Absolute Risk of Breast Cancer After 5 Years of HT 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyAbsolute Risk of Breast Cancer After 5 Years of HTWHI results indicate an HR for breast cancer of 1.24 after 5 years of HT use (a 24% increase in risk)1This translates into an absolute risk of 3.5 per 100 usersRisk of Breast Cancer by Age 60 Years After 5 Years of HT Use (Assuming a 24% Increase in Risk)3.5 of 100 women who are HT users are at risk (<1 additional woman over baseline risk)Relative risk is different from absolute and attributable risk and should not be interpreted as such. Relative risk is the ratio of the risk of disease among those exposed to a risk factor to the risk among those who were not exposed and is independent of the overall incidence of disease in the population.The WHI reported that HT use was associated with an RR of breast cancer of Women using HT experienced a 24% increase in the risk of breast cancer compared with women taking placebo.1 Therefore, the absolute risk of breast cancer by age 60 years among 50-year-old women taking HT for 5.2 years is 3.5 per 100 HT users.1,2A discussion of the attributable risk associated with HT also may help patients put breast cancer risk with HT into perspective. Attributable risk refers to the excess risk of disease in patients exposed to a potential risk factor, above and beyond the risk expected in patients not exposed to the potential risk factor. In cohort studies evaluating breast cancer risk and HT use, attributable risk is calculated as the difference in incidence rates between users and nonusers.The attributable risk of breast cancer in HT users, or the excess risk of breast cancer in HT users versus nonusers, is the difference between the incidence rates of HT users compared with nonusers. Therefore, the attributable risk of breast cancer in HT users who are 50 years of age is 0.7 per 100 women.1Chlebowski RT, et al. JAMA. 2003;289:1Chlebowski RT, et al.

28 Review of Observational Studies Published From 1975-2000 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyReview of Observational Studies Published FromE Alone (n = 45)*E+P (n = 20)In the past 25 years, more than 50 epidemiologic studies and six meta-analyses have examined the association between HT and breast cancer risk. Bush et al1 compiled the results from these studies and found a lack of consistency among the findings.Among studies that examined use of E-alone, 82% found no effect of E-alone use on breast cancer risk; 13% reported a modest increase in risk (>1.0 but not >2.0); and 2% reported a reduced risk of breast cancer with use of E-alone. The results from the WHI E-alone trial also indicate no increased risk of breast cancer with an average of 7 years of use.2Results from observational studies on E+P followed a similar pattern: 80% of the studies found no effect of E+P use on breast cancer risk; 10% of the studies reported an elevated risk; and 10% of the studies reported a reduction in breast cancer risk. Preliminary data from the E+P arm of the WHI showed a small increase in risk that was not statistically significant. However, the risk estimate crossed the predetermined stopping boundary for breast cancer and, as a result, the E+P arm of the WHI was stopped.3In summary, while the large majority of observational studies have failed to show any difference in breast cancer risk between HT users and nonusers, results from the WHI E+P trial indicate a small increase in risk with long-term use (>5 years) of E+P.*Percents do not total 100% because 1 study did not report confidence intervals; NS = not significant.Bush TL, et al.

Mean age at baseline was approximately 63 years.In the E+P trial, a total of 16,608 women without prior hysterectomy were randomly assigned to CEE/MPA or placebo.1In the E-alone trial, a total of 10,739 women with prior hysterectomy were randomly assigned to CEE alone or placebo.2The primary outcomes for both HT trials were CHD (acute myocardial infarction [MI], silent MI, or CHD death) and invasive breast cancer.The investigators also designed a “global index” as a summary measure of the overall balance of risks and benefits of HT.1The global index is an unweighted index defined as the first event for each participant among the following: CHD, invasive breast cancer, stroke, pulmonary embolism, endometrial cancer, colorectal cancer, hip fracture, and death from other causes.The conditions included in the global index were those that the WHI investigators had determined to be important aspects of health benefits/risks that might be affected by long-term use of HT.A variety of other conditions were not part of the global index, including gallbladder disease, diabetes, menopausal symptoms, and cognitive function..CHD = coronary heart disease; MI = myocardial infarction.Writing Group for the Women’s Health Initiative Investigators.

Nearly a quarter were in their 70s.Average BMI for the E alone group was 30.1 kg/m2, a value that is indicative of obesity (BMI 30.0). In fact, 80% of the women in the WHI E-alone trial were either overweight (~35%) or obese (~45%).Average BMI for the E+P treatment group was 28.5 kg/m2, a value classified as overweight (BMI 25.0–29.9).As a reference, guidelines from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute4 define overweight and obesity as: Underweight: <18.5 kg/m²; normal: 18.5–24.9 kg/m²; overweight: 25.0–29.9 kg/m²; obese: 30.0 kg/m²The study populations for the E-alone and E+P trials differed in several ways:Mean BMI was higher in the E-alone study than in the E+P study (30.1 vs 28.5).Prior hormone use was higher in the E-alone study (48% vs 26%).A greater proportion of women in the E-alone study reported diabetes (~7.7% vs 4.4%) and hypertension (~47.5% vs ~36%) at baseline.Note: **As a result of these and other differences between the two study populations (eg, intact uterus vs hysterectomy), caution is needed in making head-to-head comparisons of the results of the E-alone and E+P studies.*Values are means (SD). †Overall incidence of prior cardiovascular disease = 7.7%.

At the end of the 4-year HERS, some participants continued open-label use of E+P/placebo for an additional 2.7 years. Data collected from this observational segment of the trial (HERS II) were analyzed and reported separately.At randomization, the mean age of participants was 67 years; 2,763 women participated in HERS and 2,321 in HERS II.Although the occurrence of CHD events was the primary outcome in HERS and HERS II, data were also published on secondary outcomes, including breast cancer.As illustrated above, there was no significant difference in risk of breast cancer between E+P users and the women randomly ssigned to placebo. This finding was consistent for the HERS, HERS II, and overall results.The risk estimates from HERS, although not statistically significant, were similar to the HR reported in the WHI E+P trial.Chlebowski RT, et al.

Recruitment proceeded as follows:The National Health Service Breast Screening Programme invited all women in the UK aged 50–64 years for routine screening mammography once every 3 years. From May 1996 to March 2001, the National Health Service breast screening centers participating in the study included the study questionnaire together with their letter of invitation for routine mammography. Questionnaires were returned before screening.The questionnaire contained items about sociodemographic and other personal factors, including information about use of HT and menstrual history.Mean age at time of recruitment was 55.9 years. Average follow-up was 2.6 years for analyses of cancer incidence and 4.1 years for analyses of mortality. During the follow-up period, 9,364 cases of invasive breast cancer and 637 deaths from breast cancer were identified by the National Health Service.Analyses evaluating HT use and breast cancer risk were restricted to postmenopausal women (n = 828,923). Approximately half of these women reported ever using HT, and one third were current users. The mean duration of HT use was 5.8 years.For a small sample of the study population (n = 570), validation studies were done, comparing self-reported data with information in family physicians’ records from 2 general practices.2 These studies showed 96% agreement between data from the questionnaires and the prescription record for current HT use, and 95% agreement for any use of HT during the period covered by the prescription record. Agreement on the proprietary preparation was 69%. Agreement was 97% for hormonal constituents used.SES = socioeconomic status; NHSBSP = National Health Service Breast Screening Programme.Million Women Study Collaborators.

This calculation (shown in this slide) involves dividing the number of breast cancer deaths by the number of breast cancer cases.When calculated in this manner, the Million Women Study results for breast cancer mortality rates are consistent with those from previous studies. The next slide graphically shows the results from a number of previous studies.Million Women Study Collaborators. Lancet. 2003;362:Million Women Study Collaborators. Lancet. 2003;362:
46 WHI E+P Trial: Characteristics of Invasive Breast Cancers 4/11/2017 5:11 AMLMF/FM2004 OncologyWHI E+P Trial: Characteristics of Invasive Breast CancersE+P (n = 199)Placebo (n = 150)P-ValueTumor size, mean ± SD (cm)1.7 ± 1.11.5 ± 0.9.04Positive lymph nodes, %25.915.8.03Morphology, grade, %Well differentiated25.020.3Moderately differentiated43.347.7.61Poorly differentiated/anaplastic31.732.0ER status, %Positive86.888.2.72PR status, %75.069.9.33Deaths attributed to breast cancer, n (%)4 (2.0)4 (2.7)—Chlebowski and colleagues also compared the characteristics of the breast cancers that developed in the active treatment and placebo groups. These results indicated that tumors diagnosed in women in the E+P group were, on average, 0.2 cm larger than those diagnosed in the placebo group. In addition, 26% of breast cancers in the E+P group were node positive compared with 16% in the placebo group.Differences between groups in the morphology of the cancers were not statistically significant, and the proportion of poorly differentiated or anaplastic cancers was almost identical in both groups (32%). One quarter of the breast cancers in the E+P group were well differentiated compared with on fifth in the placebo group.No differences between groups were observed for tumor histology (data not shown).Points to consider:The standard deviation for tumor size, which indicates the degree of variance observed in tumor size in this study population, was fairly large. Standard deviations in the range of 0.9–1.1 cm suggest a variability in tumor size that is clinically meaningful in terms of differences in patient prognosis.Although statistically significant, the difference in mean tumor size between groups (0.2 cm) was small. In most cases, one would not expect this difference in tumor size to be associated with a difference in cancer stage and/or the proportion of patients with positive lymph nodes. Such differences, however, were observed in this study and additional research is needed to better understand these findings.Decisions regarding the workup of breast findings were directed by community physicians, and data on breast cancer end points was obtained by review of medical records and pathology reports. No information was provided on how lymph nodes were evaluated in the 349 cases for which results were reported.No significant differences between E+P and placebo were observed for the proportion of breast cancers that were estrogen receptor-positive (ER-positive) or progesterone receptor-positive (PR-positive).1However, the incidence of ER-positive tumors (87% in the E+P group, 88% in the placebo group) is higher than what would be expected in this age group. On average, two thirds to three quarters of women with breast cancer in the US have ER-positive tumors.2 ER-positive tumors are associated with better overall and disease-free survival compared with ER-negative tumors.3This increase in the incidence of ER-positive breast cancers may be due to the high frequency of obesity in this population (34% had a BMI 30 kg/m2).4 Obese women have a higher risk of ER-positive breast cancer compared with thinner women.5Mortality from breast cancer was similar among patients receiving E+P compared with those receiving placebo. Four deaths attributed to breast cancer occurred in each group (2.0% of the cases in the E+P group and 2.7% of cases in the placebo group).1ER = estrogen receptor; PR = progesterone receptor.Chlebowski RT, et al.

Short-term HRT use does not negate the protective effect of BPO on subsequent breast cancer risk in BRCA1/2 mutation carriers.Using mutation carriers without BPO or HRT as the referent group, HRT of any type after BPO did not significantly alter the reduction in breast cancer risk associated with BPO (HR = 0.37; 95% CI, 0.14– 0.96).This is one of the largest existing cohorts of women with BRCA 1/2 but the usual caveats apply concerning sampling or information biases and the sample provided insufficient power to detect effects for some comparisons..BPO = Bilateral prophylactic oophorectomyRebbeck TR, et al.

JAMA. 2003;289:Stefanick ML, et al. JAMA. 2006;295:Yearly mammography and clinical breast exams were required in the WHI, and these mammograms were performed at more than 3,000 clinics, hospitals, and practices in the US. Mammography reports from these settings were reviewed locally and coded as: negative, benign finding-negative, short interval follow-up suggested, suspicious abnormality, or highly suggestive of malignancy.1The WHI investigators evaluated the frequency of abnormal mammograms in the E alone and E+P trial, which they defined as those with either a recommendation for short interval follow-up or a suspicious abnormality, or those highly suggestive of malignancy.After 1 year of follow-up, the proportion of women with abnormal mammograms was greater in the E alone group (9.2%) compared with the placebo group (5.4%). This pattern continued throughout the study. However, the author’s note that the difference was primarily in assessments requiring short interval follow-up but not those with more suspicious findings, which contrasted with the E + P trial results.After 1 year of follow-up, the proportion of women with abnormal mammograms was greater in the E+P group (9.4%) compared with the placebo group (5.4%). This pattern continued throughout the study.In comparison, in a study of screening mammography in 50 community mammography practices that were included in the National Survey of Mammography Facilities, 11% of screening mammograms had abnormal findings and required further diagnostic evaluation.2One factor to consider in examining these findings is that, with an average age of 63 years at enrollment, some older women who initiated E+P would be expected to experience physiological changes in breast tissue that could have been interpreted as “abnormal,” but are typical of changes seen when women begin HT years after menopause.1Chlebowski RT, et al.
