Metformin Hydrochloride in Patients With Atypical Hyperplasia or In Situ Breast Cancer to Placebo in Decreasing Atypical Cells in Patients With Atypical Hyperplasia or in Situ Breast Cancer
The purpose of this research study is to test whether metformin, a drug commonly used to treat diabetes, is able to get rid of atypia (early cell changes that are thought to be a marker of breast cancer risk) in women at increased risk for breast cancer. There will be testing for the presence of atypia in the breast after metformin is given to see if it can get rid of atypia. The study will compare the effects, good and/or bad, of metformin or placebo on atypia to find out which is better. Note: The standard drug used for the ...
Lobular Involution-Based Response to Antiendocrine Therapy for Women with Breast Atypical Hyperplasia
The goal of this study is to perform a quantitative measure of lobular involution (qLI) from breast biopsy samples obtained at baseline (surgery) and 12 months or at time of study discontinuation. The study will determine breast density (MMG) and correlate with qLI. The study will also determine the influence of chemoprevention therapies such as tamoxifen and letrozole on qLI.
Molecular Breast Imaging in Women with Atypia and LCIS
We aim to determine if Molecular Breast Imaging (a new nuclear medicine technique developed at Mayo) can identify malignant breast lesions in women who have atypical ductal hyperplasia, atypical lobular hyperplasia, or lobular carcinoma in situ.
A Study of Low Dose Tamoxifen for Patients at High Risk for Breast Cancer
Jacksonville, FL; Rochester, MN
The purpose of this study is to determine if counseling patients about low dose tamoxifen will influence the decision to take (or not take) preventive therapy among women at increased risk for breast cancer.
