ARIMIDEX and the ATAC Clinical Trial
ARIMIDEX was put to the test, taken both against, or combined with the antiestrogen medication tamoxifen. That’s why it’s called "ATAC"- which stands for "ARIMIDEX, Tamoxifen Alone or in Combination."
More than 9,300 postmenopausal women, each with early breast cancer, were studied for over 10 years. The study period included 5 years of treatment, and 5 years post-treatment.
Women who took ARIMIDEX experienced an improvement in disease-free survival compared with those who took only tamoxifen.
