14,000 LESS breast cancers incidences in 2003!!!!

This is great news! Breast cancers were reduced by 7% in a very broad sense after the use of hormone therapy was greatly reduced.

I don't think this is old news, as statistics tend to lag events by a few years, so it wasn't really , likely due to reduced

One side effect of this news: the patient population for Herceptin (Erb-b2+) will happily decline slightly. Even with the reduced incidence rate, Genentech and BMS will still have good markets for their targeted products (Herceptin and Tykerb, respectively.)
