Category 1: Based on high-level evidence, there is uniform NCCN consensus that the intervention is appropriate.4
Aromatase inhibitors and fulvestrant have category 1 recommendations in combination with any CDK4/6 inhibitor.4

IBRANCE Indications
IBRANCE is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with hormone receptor-positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) advanced or metastatic breast cancer (MBC) in combination with:
  • an aromatase inhibitor as initial endocrine-based therapy in postmenopausal women or in men, or
  • fulvestrant in patients with disease progression following endocrine therapy
The appropriate use of IBRANCE should be based on a risk/benefit assessment by the practitioner for an individual patient.
