Breast Cancer Hormone Therapy Related Musculoskeletal Symptoms
Trial Name: A Randomized Placebo-Controlled Phase III Study of Duloxetine For Treatment of Aromatase Inhibitor (AI)-Associated Musculoskeletal Symptoms In Women With Early Stage Breast Cancer.
Protocol ID: S1202
Patients must not have concurrent medical/arthritic disease that could confound or interfere with evaluation of pain or efficacy including: inflammatory arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, spondyloarthropathy, psoriatic arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatical) and cancer involving the bone.
Enrollment: • About 294 people will take part in this study at several medical centers.
Taking part in this study may or may not make your health better. We hope that the information from this study will help doctors learn whether duloxetine reduces joint pain in patients receiving aromatase inhibitors. This information could help future patients taking aromatase inhibitors.
