Phase I/II Trial of Letrozole (Femara) and Sorafenib (Nexavar) in Postmenopausal Women With Hormone-Receptor Positive Locally Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer

Letrozole is an aromatase inhibitor that is approved in the first-line treatment of
postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive or hormone receptor unknown locally
advanced or metastatic breast cancer. Sorafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by
blocking blood flow to the tumor and by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of sorafenib when given in
combination with letrozole and to see how well they work in treating postmenopausal women
with metastatic breast cancer.
