Tamoxifen is used to treat breast cancer and is also used to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer in those at high risk. A new form of tamoxifen gel has been shown in a small study to reduce the growth rate of breast cancer cells. The gel seems to be associated with fewer side effects than the pills. More study is needed, but it's promising that a less toxic alternative to oral tamoxifen may be eventually be available for widespread use.
