Anastrozol 1mg Detailed
What is Anastrozole?
Anastrozole is a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor medication, classified as an anti-cancer drug approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in 1995. Anastrozole primary usage is to treat breast cancer for women who are in both pre and post-menopausal condition. The human body naturally makes a hormone called estrogen, and this hormone can cause or increase the growth of certain breast cancer cells. Anastrozol works by lowering or blocking the aromatase enzyme levels which are involved in producing estrogen in the body, thus stopping progression of cancerous tumors and slowing their growth. This steroid can also be used by women who have already had other cancer treatments; for example with Tamoxifen.
Anastrozole also can be found under the brand names Arimidex or Nastrosa. It is possible for this substance to not be proper to certain people, so before using it, medical approval is necessary.
