Trial Description


The purpose of this study is to find out if combining everolimus with letrozole is safe and

has beneficial effects in postmenopausal women who have estrogen positive HER2 negative

locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer. Additionally, this study aims to find out if

everolimus plus exemestane is safe and has beneficial effects in women with estrogen

positive locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer after treatment with everolimus plus

letrozole. This study will also aim to find out if a mouth rinse can help reduce the

severity of oral stomatitis, a common side effect of everolimus. This part of the study will

be conducted only in countries where an alcohol free 0.5mg/5ml dexamethasone oral solution

is commercially available.
