Uses of Anastrozole Tablets
Anastrozole tablets is used to treat breast cancer in women after the change of life (menopause). Anazole does not kill cancer cells, but it stops or slows their growth. Anastrozole is a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor, which reduces the amount of oestrogen (female sex hormone) made by the body. In certain types of breast cancer, oestrogen can help the cancer cells grow. By blocking oestrogen, Anazole may slow or stop the growth of the cancer.
Anastrozole Tablets (Anazole) – Dosage
The recommended adult dosage of Anastrozole tablets is one 1 mg tablet taken once daily. You can take Anazole before or after food.
Drug Class and Mechanism
Generic Anastrozole 1 mg (Anazole) is a potent and highly selective nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor. Anastrozole 1 mg selectively inhibits the conversion of androgens to estrogens, without affecting synthesis of adrenal corticosteroid, aldosterone or thyroid hormone.
In post-menopausal women, ovarian secretion of estrogen declines, and conversion of adrenal androgens into estrone and estradiol in peripheral tissues, catalysed by the aromatase enzyme (estrogen synthase) is the principal source of estrogens. Many breast cancers also contain aromatase and the importance of tumour-generated oestrogens is uncertain.
Reducing circulating oestradiol levels has been shown to produce a beneficial effect in women with breast cancer. In postmenopausal women, Anazole at a daily dose of 1 mg produced oestradiol suppression of greater than 80% using a highly sensitive assay.
