Drug Class and Mechanism
Letrozole is an oral, anti-estrogen drug that is used for treating postmenopausal women with breast cancer. The growth of some breast cancers in postmenopausal women is promoted by estrogens that circulate in the blood, and the adrenal glands are the main source of these circulating estrogens. Letromina (Letrozole) inhibits the enzyme in the adrenal glands (aromatase) that produces the estrogens, estradiol and estrone.
