Aromasin is an irreversible steroidal aromatase inhibitor, which is structurally reminiscent of a natural substance Androstenedione.
In the body of a woman who is experiencing a period of postmenopausal estrogen production passes mainly through the conversion of androgens into estrogens under the influence of the enzyme aromatase. By blocking the production of estrogens through aromatase inhibition, it is possible to provide effective treatment of hormone-dependent breast cancer in women during postmenopause.
Means Aromasin acts by binding the active substance to the active fragment of the enzyme. As a result, it is inactivated. Aromasin is influenced by the concentration of estrogen in the blood of postmenopausal women decreases.
