Is treatment typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"A significant percentage of women with breast cancer are treated with other treatments in combination with the estrogen-receptor blockade, including chemotherapy, targeted agents, and the trastuzumab. Although the benefits of these combinations seem to outweigh the harms, the optimal treatment choice and sequence of agents in all specific situations remains unclear. Randomised clinical trials, as well as individualised treatment strategies, should be employed in order to evaluate and refine management strategies for women with this disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Has treatment proven to be more effective than a placebo?

"Currently available and promising antiepileptic drugs as monotherapy and, particularly, when combined with another antiepileptic drug, are very effective in resolving status epilepticus. Clinical trials provide evidence of the possible efficacy of a combination of antiepileptic drug treatment for status epilepticus. For patients with epilepsy, the combination of a single antiepileptic drug treatment with a placebo is not a proven option. The most feasible approach is that in which patients are matched appropriately by evaluating their epilepsy phenotype and then administering the recommended medication." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for pregnant state?

"The health care provider making the final decision regarding whether to start, continue, or discontinue any trial during pregnancy should weigh whether or not there is a theoretical or proven benefit of the intervention against the risks.
