Observed relative risks of breast cancer after 5 years of use (RR5s) of estrogen-progestin therapy by progestin schedule (Lee et al. 2005)
In these regimens, the same daily dose of NETA, 1 mg, is used
with both the sequential and the continuous-combined EPT, so that
the total NETA dose per cycle is roughly 10 mg and 28 mg,
respectively, and the increased risk from the continuous-combined
regimen in Scandinavia is much greater than the increased risk seen
with the sequential regimen (Table 5 ; an 88% and 40%
Some of the greater effects seen within the sequential regimens in
Scandinavia compared to the United States (Table 5 ; 40% and
32% increase respectively) may be due to a greater effect of
NETA at 1 mg/day compared to 10 mg/day of MPA, although
these doses are generally considered equivalent based on their
endometrial effects (Stanczyk 2002).
