You have to take Ibrance (Palbociclib) along with Faslodex (Fulvestrant). They found that the Ibrance enhanced the Faslodex. This treatment is usually done after several others courses of meds have been done. I would think stage 4 would meet that criteria. Ibrance is used for hormone-receptor bc since it blocks the uptake of estrogen at the cellular level. Works a lot like that aromatase inhibitors.
Hope that helps.
