Objectives
Narrative objectives1 To compare continuous letrozole for five years with intermittent letrozole over a five year period for postmenopausal women who are disease-free following 4-6 years of prior adjuvant endocrine therapy with SERM(s) and/or AI(s) for endocrine-responsive, node-positive, operable breast cancer.

Assessment
Primary outcomes Disease-free survival (DFS): time from randomization to local (including invasive recurrence restricted to the breast after breast conserving treatment), regional or distant relapse, contralateral breast cancer, appearance of a second (non-breast) malignancy, or death from any cause, whichever occurs first.
Key secondary outcomes Overall survival (OS), distant disease-free survival (DDFS), breast cancer free interval (BCFI), sites of first failure, second (non-breast) malignancies, deaths without prior cancer events, and adverse events.

Results From the current analysis, we conclude that extended treatment with intermittent letrozole did not improve disease-free survival versus treatment with continuous letrozole. The safety, quality-of-life, and efficacy results of the intermittent administration provide clinically relevant information about extended adjuvant endocrine therapy with letrozole and support the safety of this option for temporary treatment breaks in selected patients who might require them.
