Biopsies of tumours from breast cancer patients who have relapsed while receiving treatment with an anti-oestrogen agent show a functional ER [23], while women who have become refractory to tamoxifen or non-steroidal AIs actually respond to further endocrine manipulation with the ER[alpha] downregulator fulvestrant [24,25], indicating that ER-mediated signalling remains functional.
This is supported by a recent clinical trial showing that women who have relapsed on an AI respond to more potent endocrine manipulation using the irreversible AI exemestane, or ER downregulation with fulvestrant [25].
