This involves an intricate paracrine loop between tumor and the surrounding adipose stromal cells (ASCs): tumor cell-derived factors such as interleukin 6 (IL-6) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) stimulate aromatase expression and hence estrogen production in ASCs, which in turn promote estrogen-dependent growth of tumor cells (87-89). Such a “vicious cycle” is thought to facilitate breast cancer progression in the unique mammary tissue microenvironment. This also serves as the rationale for using aromatase inhibitors, such as letrozole, as efficacious agents for the treatment of postmenopausal breast cancer (90).
