Addition of triptorelin to chemotherapy preserved long-term ovarian function

September 16, 2014

The addition of a luteinizing hormone-releasing analog to chemotherapy preserved long-term ovarian function in premenopausal women with early-stage breast cancer, according to long-term results of the PROMISE-GIM6 trial presented at the Breast Cancer Symposium.

“Moreover, this technique seems to improve the chance of becoming pregnant and does not negatively affect prognosis of patients,” Matteo Lambertini, MD, of the department of medical oncology at U.O. Oncologia Medica 2 in Italy, and colleagues wrote.
