Anastrozole uses –
Anastrozole is a non-steroidal drug which is used to treat breast cancer. It has been thoroughly studied in women with breast cancer between the 5th-8th decades of life. There are some breast cancers which are dependent on estrogen for their growth. Anastrozole acts by suppressing the levels of estrogen in the body and thus reduces the growth of breast cancer.
GP Anastrozole by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is an anti-estrogen available in oral form which contains 1 mg of the substance Anastrozole per tablet.
Most commonly called Arimidex, this substance is a true aromatase inhibitor which works by blocking the aromatase enzyme in the body, thus limiting the amount of estrogen buildup that takes place. Anastrozole also indicated in the treatment of advanced breast cancer in post-menopausal women who have further growth of breast cancer following treatment with Tamoxifen. Women who do not have estrogen receptor positive breast cancer and those who do not show any response to Tamoxifen generally do not respond to Anastrozole.
