Trial Information

Phase II Study of Raloxifene in Recurrent Endometrial Cancer

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine response rate and time to disease progression in patients with

OUTLINE: Patients receive oral raloxifene daily. Treatment continues indefinitely in the
absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 3
