Postmenopausal Evaluation And Risk Reduction with Lasofoxifene. A study designed to assess:
Primary outcomes—safety and efficacy of lasofoxifene in reducing the risk of osteoporotic fractures; and
Secondary outcomes—incidence of breast cancer, coronary events and hospitalisations for cerebrovascular disease.
