What is Aromasin used for?
Anastrozole is used for post-menopausal woman diagnosed with hormone receptor-positive (ER+) breast cancer; using this medication will help slow the growth of the cancer. It works by posing as a substrate for the aromatase enzyme, which ultimately inhibits the enzyme, resulting in inactivation of it (this is known as suicide inhibition); this reduces the amount of estrogen in the body, which helps to slow (or even reverse) the growth of the cancer (hormone receptor-positive breast cancer requires estrogen to grow).
