An open-label, randomized, window of opportunity study between diagnosis and definite surgery, to assess the effect of endocrine therapies with and without progesterone (prometrium) in patients with early stage ER+PR+ breast cancer.

This ‘window’ study is examining a combination of hormone treatments that may be useful as pre-surgery treatment for breast cancer. Women with newly diagnosed ER positive PR positive breast cancer who are post-menopausal may be eligible for inclusion. Participants will be randomly allocated into one of three hormone treatment arms and will receive treatment for a two-week period in between an initial biopsy and breast surgery.
