Alendronate Sodium in Preventing Breast Cancer in Premenopausal Patients Undergoing Risk-Reduction Surgery
This pilot phase I clinical trial studies how well alendronate sodium works in preventing breast cancer in premenopausal patients that have high risk gene mutations and are undergoing surgery to reduce the risk of breast cancer or are undergoing routine surveillance or are willing to undergo two clinic biopsies. Alendronate sodium may increase the number and activity of special immune cells that are able to kill new tumor cells in breast tissue.
