Aromasin general information

What is Aromasin used for?

Aromasin tablets 25mg are used as adjuvant or additional treatment for breast cancer in postmenopausal women, following primary or first line treatment with another breast cancer medication like tamoxifen. Aromasin 25 is used to treat early breast cancer to reduce risk of recurrence or spreading of the tumour. They are also used for advanced breast cancer that has not responded to other treatments and has progressed or returned following treatment with other breast cancer medication. Aromasin tablets 25mg are also used for treating breast cancer in women with induced menopause, due to surgical removal of the ovaries, if other therapy has not helped prevent progression of the tumour.

How does Aromasin work?

Aromasin tablets 25mg contain exemestane, which is a potent and highly selective inhibitor of aromatase, an enzyme that is involved in the biosynthesis of the female hormone oestrogen. In premenopausal women the primary source of oestrogen production are the ovaries and it is involved in producing secondary sexual characteristics, such as breast development and in regulating the menstrual cycle. In postmenopausal women, when oestrogen production by the ovaries ceases, low levels of oestrogen are made in peripheral tissues, such as fat cells throughout the body, also some breast cancer cells, by conversion of androstenedione (produced by the adrenal glands) to estrone, due to the action of aromatase and then by further conversion to oestradiol (the most active form of circulating oestrogen). Many breast cancers have oestrogen receptors and their growth is stimulated by oestrogen; low levels of oestrogen may be sufficient to maintain growth of these tumour cells in women with breast cancer. Exemestane in Aromasin tablets 25mg blocks the action of aromatase, preventing the formation of oestrogen and helping to prevent growth of oestrogen-dependent breast tumours.
