Uses
Anabrez (Anastrozole) is an aromatase inhibitor which is indicated for the treatment of oestrogen receptor positive breast cancer, as well as metastatic breast cancer. It works by affecting oestrogen production and availability in the body. The active ingredient in this medicine blocks aromatase activity. This enzyme is responsible for producing oestrogen, which is achieved via the conversion of testosterone and androstenedione into the sex hormone oestrogen.

By functioning as an inhibitor of aromatase, this medicine helps to trigger an overall reduction in oestrogen levels. Some forms of breast cancer will grow with the help of oestrogen, due to the oestrogen acting on the breast cancer cells, thereby speeding up the growth of cancer.

Blocking oestrogen production helps affect the spread of cancer, and prevent its growth. It may also decrease the likelihood of the cancer returning. In some cases, doctors have treated patients for endometriosis with this medicine. Medical researchers have also studied it effects if used by men to treat gynaecomastia, hypogonadism and prostate problems. This may be related to it decreasing excess oestrogen.

Dosage and Administration
Anabrez (Anastrozole) is provided in tablet form, and the medicine content of each tablet is 1mg.
