Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
- Histologically confirmed metastatic adenocarcinoma of the breast (seeTNM staging
Appendix I) that is ER and/or PR positive as determined in local laboratories at each
investigator site (central verification of ER status will be performed after the
patient starts treatment

- A tissue block from either the metastatic or primary tumor site is required.

- WHO performance status (PS) 0-2

- Patients must not be pregnant or breast-feeding. A negative pregnancy test is required
within 7 days prior to randomization if pre- or peri-menopausal. Postmenopausal
patients are defined as:

- natural menopause with last menses > 1 year ago,

- radiation induced oophorectomy with last menses > 1 year ago,

- chemotherapy induced menopause with 1 year interval since last menses, or

- serum FSH and LH and plasma estradiol levels in the postmenopausal range for the
institution.

- bilateral oophorectomy
