- InterventionsIn patients with acquired antihormonal resistance, eligible for estrogen therapy, a FES-PET scan will be made to determine FES-PET tumor uptake (which corresponds to estrogen receptor expression levels). Immediately after the FES-PET scan, all patients will start with a standard accepted dose of 2mg estradiol TID. Therapy response will be monitored by regular follow-up. RECIST criteria and clinical benifit will be used as criteria. In case of disease progression before end of the study period, estradiol treatment will be stopped.
- Primary outcomeWith a ROC analysis we will determine the optimal sensitivity and specificity of FES-PET in relation with the standard uptake value (SUV) to predict response to estrogen therapy.
- Secondary outcome1) To discriminate the acquired anti-hormonal resistant phenotypes in patients based on ER expression levels by FES-PET;
2) Correlation between SUV and response to therapy.
- TimepointsAt the start of study ER densitity will be determined by FES-PET, the patient will be staged with CT-scan, and baseline clinical information will be collected (laboratory results, VAS-score, ECOG performance, ECG).
Follow-up will take place monthly during the first 3 months, and thereafter every 3 months.

- Brief summaryPatients with different types of acquired anti-hormonal resistance are likely to respond differently to a particular kind of treatment. The ER+ subtype would most likely initially respond to a second or third line of anti-hormonal therapy, but ultimately these tumors will again become resistant. At that stage, chemotherapy is the only treatment available. Chemotherapy is currently also the only treatment option for tumors of the ER- phenotype. In contrast, treatment with estrogen is highly effective for the hypersensitive ER++ phenotype and could therefore be an attractive alternative for chemotherapy in this selected group of patients. Currently, this treatment option is not utilized due to the absence of proper stratification methods. FES-PET may allow identification of patients without ER expression (ER-), patients with preserved ER expression (ER+) and patients with ER overexpression (ER++). This project therefore aims to investigate in a pilot clinical study whether the acquired anti-hormonal resistant phenotypes in breast cancer patients can be discriminated on basis of ER expression levels as measured by FES-PET. The discrimination of phenotypes could allow selection of patients eligible to estrogen treatment.
