2) Reduction in the incidence of invasive breast cancer in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.
3) Reduction in the incidence of invasive breast cancer postmenopausal women at high risk for developing the disease. Effect comparable to that of tamoxifen in reducing the risk of invasive breast cancer (STAR trial). No effect on the risk of lobular carcinoma in situ or ductal carcinoma in situ (STAR trial). Effect on breast cancer incidence in women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutations not established.
