There are certain hormones that can attach to breast cancer cells and affect their ability to multiply. The purpose of hormone therapy, also called endocrine therapy, is to add, block, or remove hormones.
Endocrine therapies for breast cancer treatment and prevention depend upon inhibiting the proliferative effect of oestradiol on oestrogen receptor (ER)-positive tumour or normal mammary epithelial cells. Either oestradiol is inhibited from binding to ER by antioestrogens, or serum and tissue oestradiol concentrations are reduced by ovarian ablation in premenopausal women or by inhibition of aromatase in postmenopausal women.
