          Abstract

          The endocrinological actions of the luteinising hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analogue, Zoladex (goserelin) in premenopausal women with advanced breast cancer are reviewed. LHRH analogues are an interesting addition to the currently available treatments for hormone-sensitive breast cancer in premenopausal women. Their modest side effects and ease of administration are in contrast to the risks and morbidity of surgical endocrine therapy.
