The Intergroup Exemestane Study (IES)

The IES involved 4,724 women past menopause who were on tamoxifen for 2 to 3 years before beginning the study

  • 2,352 women were randomized to receive AROMASIN and 2,372 were randomized to stay on tamoxifen
  • A comparison between the 2 groups took place at 3 years (34.5 months) and again at 10 years (120 months)
