  Purpose

Select the postmenopausal patients with breast cancer who is confirmed by core needle biopsy and at the clinical stage T2-4N0-2M0.Treat them with 4 cycles of TAC as neoadjuvant chemotherapy (Docetaxel was 75mg/m2, the EPI 60mg/m2 and the CTX 600mg/m2,21day/cycle).At the same time give daily oral exemestane 25mg for 12 weeks.Then assess the efficacy and safety of TAC and Exemestane.
