This sounds promising .... This trial comes from a leukemia background and is now being tested on BC patients with HR+ Mets - hopefully even preventing cancer cells getting into bone marrow on patients who are currently NED (but may still have cancer cells circulating in the body.)  Up to 30% of NED patients may go on to develop mets.  It has worked in Mouse Studies.

Duke Cancer Institute investigators Dorothy Sipkins, MD, PhD, associate professor of medicine, pharmacology and cancer biology, and P. Kelly Marcom, MD, professor of medicine, have just launched a proof-of-concept clinical trial of a new drug for hormone receptor positive breast cancer patients whose disease has spread to the bone.
