Fulvestrant (Faslodex®) or Mifepristone therapy may cause falsely elevated estradiol results when measured by common immunoassays, which include the estradiol test used at Allina Health Laboratory.

Estradiol testing should be performed by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) in patients receiving these drugs.
