The Effect of Tamoxifen Treatment During 24 Months On Alkaline Phosphatase Concentration In Breast Cancer Patients

Betul Akcesme


Determination of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) isoenzyme activity is useful for the diagnosis and clinical evaluation of cancer patients, including breast cancer. 21 women were randomized to receive tamoxifen, probably the most widely used endocrine treatment for breast cancer worldwide, for 2 years, and 21 women constituted the control group. Control group were treated without Tamoxifen considering placebo effect. Alkaline phosphatase level was significantly lower in tamoxifen treated female breast cancer patients when compared with those of the treated patients with placebo. Results indicates that the tamoxifen decrease the level of ALP in first three months and then stabilize this level in the following months.
