Hot flushes means cancer drugs work30th October 2008

A new study, which is published in The Lancet Oncology, has found that women taking tamoxifen or anastrozole are 10% less likely to have a recurrence of the disease if they have the side effects. Researchers, who analysed data from 4,000 women with early-stage breast cancer, hope that their findings will encourage women to continue with therapy despite uncomfortable symptoms.
