The study, done at Loyola University and the University of California-Irvine, finds that combining the two breast cancer drugs Arimidex and Faslodex increases survival. Usually the drugs are given separately. The study finds those getting both drugs, together, survived 6 months longer than those getting them separately.
They also had more time before the disease progressed.
