Preclinical breast effects of a tissue selective estrogen complex (TSEC) including conjugated estrogen with bazedoxifene



Preclinical breast effects of a tissue selective estrogen complex (TSEC) including conjugated estrogen with bazedoxifene



Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 170: 61-64



The first tissue-selective estrogen complex (TSEC), consisting of a combination of a conjugated equine estrogen (CEE) and bazedoxifene (BZA), has been approved for treatment of the menopause in the USA and European Union. We have postulated that this TSEC might block the estrogenic effects of CEE on breast tissue and thereby prevent breast cancer growth. This manuscript, representing a presentation at a Festschrift honoring Evan Simpson, reviews our published data BZA blocked the in vitro effects of both estradiol and CEE on cell growth and gene expression in MCF-7 cells. BZA completely blocked CEE- or E2-stimulated ductal and terminal end bud growth of immature murine mammary glands and the growth of experimental breast cancers. These findings provide a rationale for future clinical studies to determine whether this TSEC prevents the growth of occult breast cancer in women.
