Oasis 4 Study - Hot Flushes Associated with Hormonal Therapy for Breast Cancer

Study site Imperial Hospital

Doctors are testing an investigational medication to assess if it reduces hot flushes caused by hormonal therapies for breast cancer.

You may qualify if:

  • you are a woman 18 to 70 years of age.
  • you have, or are at high risk of having, hormone-receptor positive breast cancer.
  • you are currently suffering from hot flushes due to taking hormonal therapy for breast cancer.

In most cases where breast cancer is found to be hormone-receptor positive, it is treated with tamoxifen or aromatase inhibitors. These treatments can trigger hot flushes, regardless of the age of the patient. As women around the world know, hot flushes can be extremely intrusive on day-to-day living; interrupting work, sleep, and negatively impacting overall quality of life. For those who have, or are at high risk of having, hormone-receptor positive breast cancer and are being treated with hormonal therapies, hot flushes only make a difficult situation more challenging.

NIHR Testosterone Trial

The National Institute of Health Research is looking to fund research on the benefits and risks of testosterone in women during the menopause.

A team of clinicians, researchers, and women in menopause, which includes Paula Briggs, Haitham Hamoda, Tim Hillard, Lynne Robinson, Melanie Davies and Channa Jayasena, is designing a trial to compare testosterone to a placebo (dummy treatment). To make sure that the trial is acceptable to women who have menopausal symptoms, please share the link to the short survey. This should take less than 5 minutes to complete and all responses are confidential.
