Breast Cancer Study: Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center is putting out a call for women to participate in a clinical trial to test a drug's effectiveness in treating breast cancer.

The study will focus on the long-term effectiveness of tamoxifen. Researchers are looking for two groups: women 60 and older, and women age 35 to 59. The hospital will be one of 270 sites participating in the nationwide study.

For more information about the study, sponsored by the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project and the National Cancer Institute, call the Fountain Valley hospital at (714) 966-7200.
