Anabrez is indicated for treatment of breast cancer in postmenopausal women.

Pharmacological action of Anabrez

Anastrozole selectively prohibits aromatase. The main source of circulating estrogen (primarily estradiol) is changes of adrenally-generated androstenedione to estrone by aromatase in peripheral tissues. Hence, aromatase prevention causes to a reduce in serum and tumor concentration of estrogen, leading to a reduced tumor mass or delayed progression of tumor development in some women. Anastrozole has no detectable effect on combination of adrenal corticosteroids, aldosterone, and thyroid hormone.
