Study Evaluating the Use of a New Drug with Hormone Therapy for Breast Cancer.

What we are studying

The purpose of this study is to see whether treatment with everolimus plus hormone treatment after chemotherapy will increase the time without your cancer returning. The current standard treatment after chemotherapy is hormone treatment alone. Everolimus is a drug currently approved for the treatment of patients with advanced or metastatic kidney or breast cancer. It is considered investigational for non-metastatic breast cancer patients. In this study you will get hormone treatment with either everolimus or with placebo (a pill with no medication). The combination of hormone-treatment and everolimus is experimental in patients with breast cancer.
