Raloxifene and Omega-3 Fatty Acid Study

This study at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, in Hershey, is investigating whether combining raloxifene with a dietary supplement called omega-3 fatty acid has an effect on breast density or urine and blood chemicals associated with breast cancer development.
