“Father of Tamoxifen” Dr V. Craig Jordan supports a recent case report by our Dr. Lemmo. There may exist a potential “dark-side” of Tamoxifen-type drugs used in breast cancer and its prevention.

A patient with advanced breast cancer experienced a significant shrinkage of her metastatic disease when stopping the drug Raloxifene (a relative of Tamoxifen).  She continues to be in excellent shape without the need of any treatment during the past 16 months.  The oncology community is largely not aware of this phenomenon where a drug designed to help with breast cancer may do the exact opposite and feed the disease. Senior scientist and researcher Dr. V. Craig Jordan from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center wanted to place further attention in this area by writing an editorial on our case. This has been such an incredible honour and we are truly humbled by Dr. Jordan’s supportive comments. Dr. Jordan shares valuable expertise and insights into how the bodies own estrogen can actually shrink breast cancer which may be an explanation for the positive response seen in this case report.
