Objective: The antihormonal therapy of breast cancer patients with the anti-estrogen tamoxifen often induces or aggravates menopausal complaints. As estrogen substitution is contraindicated, herbal alternatives, e.g. extracts of black cohosh are often used.
Design: A prospective observational study was carried out in 50 breast cancer patients with tamoxifen treatment. more
