Large randomised trials and meta-analyses of breast cancer treatments

Lead Research Organisation: Medical Research Council

Abstract

This programme undertakes research to improve the treatment and survival of women with breast cancer by undertaking randomised controlled trials of new and existing treatments and systematically collecting and analysing the data from all breast cancer trials undertaken worldwide. This collaboration meets every few years and involves around 600 trialists. The published findings have had a major impact on cancer research, resulting in new trials to address important treatment questions that had yet to be reliably addressed. An example of such a trial is the ongoing ATLAS trial, which is run from CTSU and involves more than a 1,000 collaborating doctors in 38 countries, has randomised 13,000 women to either 5 or 10 years treatment with tamoxifen, and has shown that longer treatment improves 15 year survival. The published research findings of the collaboration have also had a major impact on the treatment of breast cancer. It has been referenced in evidence-based guidelines worldwide, including those published by the UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence, NICE. While the long-term survival gains identified from the research of the collaboration are each only moderate, the combination of several of these moderate gains have resulted in a halving of breast cancer mortality in the UK for women aged 35-69.

Technical Summary

The programme will continue the long-running Early Breast Cancer Triallists’ Collaborative Group (EBCTCG) and the ATLAS trial follow-up to obtain large-scale randomised evidence about the long-term main effects and side-effects of local and systemic adjuvant breast cancer treatments, and influence the interpretation of past trials and the design of future trials of treatment and screening. About every 5 years, EBCTCG seeks data on each individual patients in all adjuvant breast trials, for checking and meta-analyses and has previously demonstrated effects on mortality not reliably demonstrable in separate trials. EBCTGCG reports (>14,000 citations) influence practice guidelines and change worldwide treatment patterns. The long-term survival gains identified are each only moderate, but, from the combination of several moderate gains, UK breast cancer mortality at age 35-69 has been halved. The collaboration has also shown that 5-year tamoxifen reduces 10-year and 15-year breast cancer mortality rates by 1/3. It was feared that continuing tamoxifen for more than 5 years might increase rather than decrease recurrence, but CTSU’s ATLAS trial (n=13,000) randomised 10-year vs 5-year tamoxifen and showed 10-year continuation moderately lowers 15-year mortality. Follow-up of ATLAS is continuing, as ER+ disease can recur throughout years 10-20.

Impact Although follow-up continues, interim findings from ATLAS have clearly shown that continuing tamoxifen treatment for 10 years instead of stopping after only 5 years had little effect on either recurrence rates or death rates during the period 5-9 years after diagnosis. However, women allocated to continue tamoxifen had 25% lower recurrence rate and 29% lower breast cancer mortality during years 10-14 than women allocated to stop after only 5 years. Tamoxifen is still widely used, particularly for pre-menopausal women and the ATLAS results are likely to change treatment guidelines, doubling the recommended tamoxifen duration to 10 years.

Impact Although follow-up continues, interim findings from ATLAS have clearly shown that continuing tamoxifen treatment for 10 years instead of stopping after only 5 years had little effect on either recurrence rates or death rates during the period 5-9 years after diagnosis. However, women allocated to continue tamoxifen had 25% lower recurrence rate and 29% lower breast cancer mortality during years 10-14 than women allocated to stop after only 5 years. Tamoxifen is still widely used, particularly for pre-menopausal women and the ATLAS results are likely to change treatment guidelines, doubling the recommended tamoxifen duration to 10 years.

Tamoxifen is still widely used, particularly for pre-menopausal women and the ATLAS results are likely to change treatment guidelines, doubling the recommended tamoxifen duration to 10 years.

Collaborator Contribution Local collaborating hospitals are responsible for the recruitment and follow-up of their patients who participate in ATLAS.
Impact Although follow-up continues, interim findings from ATLAS have clearly shown that continuing tamoxifen treatment for 10 years instead of stopping after only 5 years had little effect on either recurrence rates or death rates during the period 5-9 years after diagnosis. However, women allocated to continue tamoxifen had 25% lower recurrence rate and 29% lower breast cancer mortality during years 10-14 than women allocated to stop after only 5 years. Tamoxifen is still widely used, particularly for pre-menopausal women and the ATLAS results are likely to change treatment guidelines, doubling the recommended tamoxifen duration to 10 years.

Collaborator Contribution Local collaborating hospitals are responsible for the recruitment and follow-up of their patients who participate in ATLAS.
Impact Although follow-up continues, interim findings from ATLAS have clearly shown that continuing tamoxifen treatment for 10 years instead of stopping after only 5 years had little effect on either recurrence rates or death rates during the period 5-9 years after diagnosis. However, women allocated to continue tamoxifen had 25% lower recurrence rate and 29% lower breast cancer mortality during years 10-14 than women allocated to stop after only 5 years.

However, women allocated to continue tamoxifen had 25% lower recurrence rate and 29% lower breast cancer mortality during years 10-14 than women allocated to stop after only 5 years. Tamoxifen is still widely used, particularly for pre-menopausal women and the ATLAS results are likely to change treatment guidelines, doubling the recommended tamoxifen duration to 10 years.

Collaborator Contribution Local collaborating hospitals are responsible for the recruitment and follow-up of their patients who participate in ATLAS.
Impact Although follow-up continues, interim findings from ATLAS have clearly shown that continuing tamoxifen treatment for 10 years instead of stopping after only 5 years had little effect on either recurrence rates or death rates during the period 5-9 years after diagnosis. However, women allocated to continue tamoxifen had 25% lower recurrence rate and 29% lower breast cancer mortality during years 10-14 than women allocated to stop after only 5 years. Tamoxifen is still widely used, particularly for pre-menopausal women and the ATLAS results are likely to change treatment guidelines, doubling the recommended tamoxifen duration to 10 years.

Tamoxifen is still widely used, particularly for pre-menopausal women and the ATLAS results are likely to change treatment guidelines, doubling the recommended tamoxifen duration to 10 years.

Organisation Medical Oncology Centre of Rosebank
Country South Africa 
Sector Charity/Non Profit 
PI Contribution ATLAS is coordinated by CTSU and has randomised over 15,000 women, making it the largest ever trial of the treatment of breast cancer.
Collaborator Contribution Local collaborating hospitals are responsible for the recruitment and follow-up of their patients who participate in ATLAS.
Impact Although follow-up continues, interim findings from ATLAS have clearly shown that continuing tamoxifen treatment for 10 years instead of stopping after only 5 years had little effect on either recurrence rates or death rates during the period 5-9 years after diagnosis. However, women allocated to continue tamoxifen had 25% lower recurrence rate and 29% lower breast cancer mortality during years 10-14 than women allocated to stop after only 5 years. Tamoxifen is still widely used, particularly for pre-menopausal women and the ATLAS results are likely to change treatment guidelines, doubling the recommended tamoxifen duration to 10 years.
