Breast Cancer: SWOG S1105 (Iowa Cancer Specialists)

SWOG S1105: Randomized Trial of Text-Messaging Intervention to Reduce Early Discontinuation of Adjuvant Aromatase Inhibitor Therapy in Women with Early Stage Breast Cancer.


This study is being done because many women who are on oral aromatase inhibitor (AI) therapy for a long period of time don’t take it regularly. The purpose of this study is to find out the reasons why women don’t take it regularly and also to see if text messaging will help women remember to take their AI medication and stay on the treatment.

Individuals eligible for this study are those with a diagnosis of Stage I-III breast cancer that have finished chemotherapy and surgery, as needed, and are currently being treated with an aromatase inhibitor.
