Usage: An aromatase inhibitor. Used as an antineoplastic raw materials.
Potent selective triazole aromatase inhibitors, can inhibit the cytochrome P-450 aromatase enzyme which depends blocking the biosynthesis of estrogen, and estrogen to stimulate breast cancer cell
growth factors. Treatment of breast cancer, especially for those with hormone relapse after adjuvant therapy after menopause for women with advanced breast cancer
Although Arimidex does increase testosterone levels slightly in the body, it is more often used in conjunction with other steroids to lower estrogen in the body. Many anabolic
steroids will convert, or aromatize, in the body into estrogen, which causes many of the unwanted side effects like bloating and acne. Arimidex is one of the best compounds to lower the aromatizing
effect of steroids.
As to female. Many breast cancers are stimulated to grow by the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone. These breast cancers can be treated with drugs that block the effects
of these hormones. Arimidex blocks the process of aromatisation. So it lowers the amount of oestrogen in the body. In advanced breast cancer the cancer cells may grow more slowly or stop growing
As to male. Anastrozole may also be a part of treatment for men suffering from prostate cancer. In rare cases when a male patient has breast cancer, anastrozole may also be a
