These results indicate that certain endogenous estradiol metabolites are able to stimulate breast cancer cell proliferation, and others may be suitable for breast cancer treatment when used in high dosages, since they inhibit cancer cell growth as well as neoangiogensis. This may be of special importance for therapy, since some of these metabolites are virtually devoid of any oestrogenic activity.
