Estrogen receptor positive tumors essentially accounted for the entire decline.
Because the drug is removing the estrogen receptor as a target by degradation, it is less likely the cancer cell can develop a resistance mechanism because you are removing the target," lead author Suzanne Wardell, PhD, a research scientist working in McDonnell's lab, said.
Other hormonal therapies for breast cancer aim to block the estrogen receptor or lessen the amount of available estrogen in a patient's body; fulvestrant degrades the estrogen receptor, sometimes even causing it to disapper.

People and other vertebrates have genes for six steroid receptors, including two estrogen receptors.
professor of medicine at Baylor, said that the research group's working hypothesis is that estrogen receptor activation by the mutation is a permissive event occurring early in breast cancer evolution.
SAN ANTONIO -- Misdiagnoses of breast cancer patients' estrogen receptor status have increased sharply since pathology laboratories' near-universal shift from ligand-binding assay to immunohistochemistry, according to Dr.
GTx is developing ACAPODENE[R] (toremifene citrate), a selective estrogen receptor modulator, or SERM, in two separate clinical programs in men: first, a pivotal Phase III clinical trial for the treatment of serious side effects of androgen deprivation therapy for advanced prostate cancer, and second, a pivotal Phase III clinical trial for the prevention of prostate cancer in high risk men with high grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia, or PIN.
