Aromasin (Exemestane) Product Information
Aromasin is a prescribed medicine for treating postmenopausal women who have breast cancer. Also known as Exemestane, it is specifically designed for postmenopausal women who want to switch from Tamoxifen medicine, and can be used to treat patients whose breast cancer has continued to grow even after undergoing surgery or radiation therapy.
This medication works by reducing the levels of estrogen in the body. This can slow down the development of specific types of breast tumors that require estrogen to grow.
Belonging to a category of medicines called aromatase inhibitors, Aromasin blocks the aromatase enzymes. These are enzymes that produce the most estrogen in the body, because these enzymes are blocked, estrogen levels in the body are reduced and this prevents the growth of breast tumors.
Some tumors have estrogen receptors on the outer surfaces of their cells and if this hormone is present, they become cancerous. Therefore, women with hormone receptor-positive breast tumors are likely to respond well to Aromasin.
