Conditions breast neoplasms, mtor protein
Treatments tamoxifen, everolimus
Phase phase 2
Targets mTOR, FKBP-12
Collaborator Novartis
Start date March 2008
End date June 2011
Trial size 111 participants
Trial identifier NCT01298713, EUDRACT 2006-004332-79, TAMRAD


Tamoxifen is a classical treatment for breast metastatic cancer after 3rd generation anti-aromatase hormonotherapy in adjuvant or in metastatic line. The Tamoxifen efficacy is lowered by the hormonoresistance mechanisms due to the primary use of the anti-aromatases. The Pi3K-AKT-mTor pathway is frequently associated to the hormonoresistance mechanisms. This study is aimed to check if the inhibition of this signal transduction pathway by a synthetic mTor inhibitor (Everolimus) could improve the efficacy of the Tamoxifen.
