A selective aromatase inhibitor effective in the treatment of estrogen-dependent disease including breast cancer.
An enzyme that catalyzes the desaturation (aromatization) of the ring A of C19 androgens and converts them to C18 estrogens. In this process, the 19-methyl is removed. This enzyme is membrane-bound, located in the endoplasmic reticulum of estrogen-producing cells of ovaries, placenta, testes, adipose, and brain tissues. Aromatase is encoded by the CYP19 gene, and functions in complex with NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE in the cytochrome P-450 system.

Antineoplastic agents that are used to treat hormone-sensitive tumors. Hormone-sensitive tumors may be hormone-dependent, hormone-responsive, or both. A hormone-dependent tumor regresses on removal of the hormonal stimulus, by surgery or pharmacological block. Hormone-responsive tumors may regress when pharmacologic amounts of hormones are administered regardless of whether previous signs of hormone sensitivity were observed. The major hormone-responsive cancers include carcinomas of the breast, prostate, and endometrium; lymphomas; and certain leukemias. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual 1994, p2079)

The aromatase inactivator 4-hydroxyandrostenedione (4-OH-A) inhibits tamoxifen metabolism by rat hepatic cytochrome P-450 3A: potential for drug-drug interaction of tamoxifen and 4-OH-A in combined anti-breast cancer therapy. (1/981)

Tamoxifen (tam), an anti-breast cancer agent, is metabolized into tam-N-oxide by the hepatic flavin-containing monooxygenase and into N-desmethyl- and 4-hydroxy-tam by cytochrome P-450s (CYPs). Additionally, tam is metabolically activated by hepatic CYP3A, forming a reactive intermediate that binds covalently to proteins. Tam and 4-hydroxyandrostenedione (4-OH-A) are currently used to treat breast cancer, and it has been contemplated that 4-OH-A be given concurrently with tam to contravene potential tumor resistance to tam. Because alterations in tam metabolism may influence its therapeutic efficacy, the effect of 4-OH-A on tam metabolism was examined. Incubation of tam with liver microsomes from phenobarbital-treated rats, in the presence of 4-OH-A (10-100 microM), resulted in marked inhibition of tam-N-demethylation and tam covalent binding and in decreased tam-N-oxide accumulation; however, there was no inhibition of the formation of 4-hydroxy-tam and of 3,4-dihydroxytamoxifen. These findings indicate that 4-OH-A inhibits CYP3A, but not P-450(s) that catalyze tam 4-hydroxylation. The diminished tam-N-oxide accumulation could be due to decreased N-oxide formation and/or due to increased N-oxide reduction. Incubation of tam-N-oxide with liver microsomes containing heat-inactivated flavin-containing monooxygenase demonstrated that 4-OH-A increases the accumulation of tam, possibly by diminishing its P-450-mediated metabolism. Kinetic studies indicate that 4-OH-A is a competitive inhibitor of CYP3A, but not a time-dependent inactivator. Consequently, the concurrent treatment of tam and 4-OH-A may result in increased tam half-life and thus could potentiate the therapeutic efficacy of tam and diminish the potential side effects of tam by inhibiting its covalent binding to proteins and possibly to DNA.  (+info)

Inhibitory effects of nitric oxide on the expression and activity of aromatase in human granulosa cells. (2/981)

The aim of the present study was to explore the mechanisms by which nitric oxide (NO) may inhibit aromatase activity of human granulosa cells. Ovarian granulosa-luteal cells, obtained from patients undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) were cultured in the presence of NO-related substances. After 24 h of culture, aromatase activity of the cells was significantly inhibited by treatment with the NO donors, SNAP or NOC12 at > or =10(-4) M in a dose-dependent manner. Treatment with NO catabolites or a peroxynitrite-releasing compound, SIN1, had no significant influence. Treatment with SNAP at 10(-3) M decreased relative aromatase mRNA values by 72% (P<0.05) and intracellular cyclic AMP concentrations by 53% (P<0.01). However, treatment with H89, an inhibitor of protein kinase A, did not inhibit aromatase activity. Since there were no significant effects of NO catabolites or peroxinitrite, the inhibitory action of NO donors on aromatase must be related to NO release. The action of NO is, in part, attributable to the down-regulation of aromatase gene transcription. Although NO decreased intracellular cAMP values, down-regulation of aromatase gene transcription may not be mediated by protein kinase A-dependent mechanisms.  (+info)

Evidence of sex reversal in the gonads of chicken embryos after oestrogen treatment as detected by expression of lutropin receptor. (3/981)

In chicken embryos, there is a difference between the sexes in the onset of lutropin receptor mRNA expression in the gonads. The effects of oestrogen on lutropin receptor expression were studied to investigate the mechanism controlling this difference. Lutropin receptor mRNA expression was detected in the ovaries of sesame oil-treated control female embryos on day 12 of incubation, while no expression was found in the testes of the male controls. Oestradiol administration to genetically male embryos before sexual differentiation resulted in gonadal sex reversal which was characterized histologically by the proliferation of cortical cords and the presence of lacunae. Lutropin receptor expression was detected in the feminizing testis on day 12 of incubation. Administration of aromatase inhibitor (CGS 16949 A) to genetically female embryos before sexual differentiation inhibited the formation of cortical cords, although a relatively weak expression of lutropin receptor was detected. These results indicate that early expression of the lutropin receptor is regulated by oestrogen.  (+info)

Presence of an aromatase inhibitor, possibly heat shock protein 90, in dominant follicles of cattle. (4/981)

In cattle, it has been suggested that follicular fluid has direct modulatory effects on follicular growth and maturation. In the first part of this study, an in vitro test using aromatase activity of follicular wall fragments as an end point was validated for cattle follicles and was used to test whether follicular fluid (from dominant or non-dominant follicles) modulates aromatase activity. Fluid from dominant follicles at a concentration of 24 or 12% (obtained during the luteal and follicular phases, respectively) significantly inhibited aromatase activity. Inhibitory activity was low or absent in fluid from non-dominant follicles. FSH-stimulated aromatase activity was also reduced by fluid from dominant follicles, but not to a greater extent than in basal conditions. Finally, charcoal-treated fluid from dominant follicles retained its inhibitory activity. In contrast, ovarian venous serum draining a dominant follicle had no activity at the three concentrations tested (6, 12 and 24%). In the second part of the study, identification of the compounds involved in this modulatory activity was attempted using SDS-PAGE. Comparison of the fluorographs from de novo synthesized proteins stored in follicular fluid (inhibitory medium) with those secreted in incubation medium (inactive medium) demonstrated that one protein (90 kDa, pI 5.8) was significantly (P < 0.05) more abundant in fluid from dominant follicles (2.0 +/- 0.09%) than in the culture medium (1.3 +/- 0.1% of the total proteins). This protein had characteristics similar to those of heat shock protein 90 (hsp 90). Therefore, in the final part of the study, the presence of hsp 90 in ovarian cells and follicular fluid was investigated using immunohistochemistry and western blot analysis. After immunohistochemistry, a positive signal was detected mainly in the granulosa cells of larger follicles and to a smaller extent in thecal cells and oocytes. Western blot analysis also demonstrated the presence of hsp 90 in follicular wall fragments and fluid. When blotting was achieved on a sample of follicular fluid resolved by two-dimensional PAGE, the spot detected had a similar location to that at 90 kDa and pI 5.8. Addition of purified hsp 90 to bovine follicles in vitro depressed aromatase activity by altering the K(m) value (and possibly the Vmax value) of the enzyme. It is proposed that hsp 90 is a functional regulator of follicular maturation through its action on aromatase.  (+info)

The third-generation non-steroidal aromatase inhibitors: a review of their clinical benefits in the second-line hormonal treatment of advanced breast cancer. (5/981)

Three new aromatase inhibitors have recently completed phase III evaluation as treatment of metastatic breast cancer in post-menopausal women whose disease has progressed despite tamoxifen therapy: anastrozole (ARIMIDEX, Zeneca), letrozole (FEMARA, Novartis) and vorozole (RIVIZOR, Janssen). All belong to the third generation of non-steroidal aromatase inhibitors, and each is superior to previous generations in terms of potency and selectivity. The trials that have been performed compare each agent to megestrol acetate, and letrozole and vorozole to aminoglutethimide. Although the studies are not directly comparable due to differing study designs and patient populations, it has been demonstrated each of these drugs provides single agent, once-daily, oral palliation of hormone-responsive, post-menopausal metastatic breast cancer. Letrozole is clearly more effective than megestrol acetate, and anastrozole and vorozole are possibly so. All three are better tolerated than the progestin, particularly in terms of weight gain. Both letrozole and vorozole are significantly more effective, and better tolerated than aminoglutethimide. Overall, this most recent generation of aromatase inhibitors is a clear improvement on our current standard second-line therapies. In 1999, tamoxifen remains the first choice in the hormonal therapy of breast cancer. Following tamoxifen failure, the optimal second-line hormonal therapy remains undefined, but aminoglutethimide and megestrol acetate are no longer optimal therapy in this setting. The third-generation non-steroidal aromatase inhibitors must now be compared to each other, to the steroidal aromatase inhibitors, to the pure anti-oestrogens, and to tamoxifen.  (+info)

Estrogen-inducible, sex-specific expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor mRNA in a forebrain song control nucleus of the juvenile zebra finch. (6/981)

The expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) mRNA is increased significantly within the high vocal center (HVc) of male but not female zebra finches from posthatching day 30-35 on. The population of HVc cells expressing BDNF mRNA included 35% of the neurons projecting to the nucleus robustus of the archistriatum (RA). In the RA and in RA-projecting neurons of the lateral portion of the magnocellular nucleus of the anterior neostriatum, BDNF mRNA was expressed at very low levels in both sexes. The BDNF-receptor trkB mRNA was expressed in the RA, in RA-projecting neurons of lateral portion of the magnocellular nucleus of the anterior neostriatum, and in the HVc, except in most of its RA-projecting neurons. Premature stimulation and an inhibitory effect on the normal increase of the BDNF mRNA expression in juvenile males occurred after treatments with 17beta-estradiol and the aromatase inhibitor fadrozole, respectively. The up-regulation of the BDNF expression in the HVc could be a mechanism by which estrogen triggers the differentiation of cells within and connected to the HVc of male zebra finches.  (+info)

Mitogenic and antioxidant mechanisms of estradiol action in preovulatory ovine follicles: relevance to luteal function. (7/981)

The objectives of this investigation were to determine the intrafollicular mechanisms and physiological consequences of estradiol actions in preovulatory ovine follicles. Acute suppression of estradiol production in proestrous ewes by an aromatase inhibitor (Arimidex) was associated with follicular lipid peroxidation, testosterone accumulation, and a granulosa cell deficiency (decreased proliferation/increased apoptosis). Estradiol-17beta stimulated granulosa proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and protected cells from oxidative (H(2)O(2)) stress-induced apoptosis in vitro; the PCNA, but not the antiapoptotic response, was negated by the transcriptional inhibitor actinomycin D. Thus, it appears that genomic/mitotic and cytoprotective (oxygen-scavenging) modes of estradiol action operate in preovulatory follicles. Luteal (large steroidogenic cell) function was diminished following ovulation induction of estradiol-deficient follicles. It is suggested that inadequate exposure of the preovulatory follicle to estradiol caused the granulosa lutein insufficiency.  (+info)

Gonadal stage-dependent effects of gonadal steroids on gonadotropin II secretion in the Atlantic croaker (Micropogonias undulatus). (8/981)

Involvement of gonadal steroids in the control of gonadotropin II (GTH II) (homologous to LH) secretion was investigated in the Atlantic croaker (Micropogonias undulatus) using gonadectomy (Gx) and steroid replacement paradigms. Gonadectomy in males and females during the late gonadal recrudescence phase elicited significant increases in the gonadotropin response to stimulation by an LHRH analog (LHRHa), without altering basal GTH II secretion. Slow-release silicone elastomer implants of testosterone or estradiol significantly inhibited LHRHa-induced GTH II secretion in gonad-intact and Gx males, and in Gx females, whereas 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone, a nonaromatizable androgen, was ineffective. Pretreatment of fish with an aromatase inhibitor, 1,4, 6-androstatrien-3,17-dione, 2 days before the administration of testosterone implants, completely blocked the negative effect of testosterone on LHRHa-induced GTH II secretion in males, but only partially restored it in females. This suggests that the negative feedback of testosterone in males is primarily mediated by its conversion to estradiol at the level of the hypothalamus and/or pituitary gland, while in females the androgen may also exert a direct inhibitory effect on GTH II secretion, probably mediated via an androgen receptor. In addition, estradiol and testosterone exerted positive effects on basal and LHRHa-induced GTH II secretion during the early-recrudescence phase of the gonadal cycle. The steroids switched to a negative effect on LHRHa-induced GTH II secretion once the fish had fully developed gonads, possibly as a mechanism that prevents a precocious surge in GTH II secretion and final gamete maturation until gametogenesis is complete and the environmental conditions are appropriate for spawning.  (+info)

RATIONALE: Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using letrozole may fight breast cancer by lowering the amount of estrogen the body makes. It is not yet known whether letrozole is more effective than a placebo in treating in women with breast cancer who have already received 5 years of aromatase inhibitor therapy.. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying letrozole to see how well it works compared with a placebo in treating women with primary breast cancer who have received 5 years of aromatase inhibitor therapy. ...
Objective: To analyze the implementation of a switching policy of adjuvant aromatase inhibitor (AI) therapy sequentially after tamoxifen in consecutively treated stage I (T1N0M0) hormone receptor (HR)-positive breast cancer (BC) patients. Methods: The records of 279 consecutive HR-positive BC patients diagnosed between 2002 and 2006 and followed at the Soroka Medical Center were reviewed. Results: Two-hundred-seventeen patients who initially received tamoxifen were suitable for switching and 28 received an AI as initial adjuvant treatment. The switch was accomplished in 82.5% of the 217 patients. Those who switched to an AI had a higher proportion of T1c stage than patients eligible who were not switched, but did not differ in age, histologic grade, or having received chemotherapy. Of the 179 patients who switched, 155 (86.6%) completed at least 4.5-5 years of adjuvant tamoxifen/AI therapy. Eighteen patients discontinued AI therapy prematurely because of toxicity. Conclusions: In this stage I BC ...
Impact of Chemotherapy Followed by Aromatase Inhibitors on Bone Health of Women With ER-positive Early Breast Cancer (POCHARBI ...
Methods Female patients referred for BMD estimation in a scanner in the North West of England between 2004 and 2014 on aromatase inhibitors were identified from a dual X-ray absorptiometry database. Demographics and other risk factors, as well as fragility fractures, were recorded. Initially, those who had sustained a fracture were compared to those who had not sustained a fracture using chi-squared tests for categorical variables and T-tests for continuous variables. Following that, univariate and multivariate logistic regression models were fitted looking at the predictors of fracture. Variables included age at scan, height, weight, alcohol, smoking, family history, rheumatoid arthritis, secondary osteoporosis as defined by FRAX™, body mass index and steroid exposure, in addition to BMD in the lumbar spine and femoral neck. ...
Exemestane (Aromasin) is an oral steroidal aromatase inhibitor, but unlike letrozole and anastrozole it permanently binds to the active site of the aromatase enzymes thus blocking their function of converting androgens into estrogens. This is known as Type I or suicide inhibition because the inhibitor becomes inactive due to the mechanism of its actions. A permanent bond with the aromatase enzyme complex is formed and prolonged effects may be experienced even after the drug has cleared from circulation. The aromatase enzymes activity can only be restored by new enzyme synthesis.. Type II aromatase inhibitors (letrozole and anastrozole) inhibit the enzyme by binding reversibly to the aromatase enzyme through competitive inhibition which does not destroy the enzyme and inhibition are stopped upon clearance of the drug.. For bodybuilders this is of significant value because it means that estrogenic rebound is not possible upon the removal of exemestane. Other aromatase inhibitors will disassociate ...

en] Treatment of castrated quail with testosterone (T) reliably activates male copulatory behavior and, at the same time, increases the aromatase activity (AA), the number of aromatase-immunoreactive (ARO-ir) cells and the concentration of aromatase mRNA as measured by RT-PCR in the brain. All these effects can be mimicked by estrogens. The behavioral effects of T can be blocked by a variety of aromatase inhibitors and, in parallel, the AA is strongly inhibited in the preoptic area (POA). We showed recently that the steroidal inhibitor, 4-OH-androstenedione (OHA) markedly decreases the immunostaining density of brain ARO-ir cells while the non-steroidal inhibitor, R76713 (racemic Vorozole; VOR) unexpectedly increased the density of this staining, despite the fact that the enzyme activity was completely inhibited. To generalize these findings and try to identify the underlying mechanism, we compared here the effects of two steroidal (OHA and androstatrienedione [ATD]) and two non-steroidal (VOR ...
One of the major drawback of aromatase inhibitors, a class of drugs, commonly used in the management of estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) breast cancer is the debilitating joint pain.
To provide statements and recommendations, based on the best available evidence, about the use of aromatase inhibitors as adjuvant endocrine therapy for post-menopausal women with hormone receptor-positive early invasive breast cancer.
Introduction. Aromatase inhibitors (AI) have become the accepted adjuvant therapy for postmenopausal patients with breast cancer with hormonal receptor expression1. AI brought about a marked reduction in estrogen levels through inhibition of the aromatase enzyme2 whose activity is relegated to peripheral tissues during menopause3. The American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) recommends using the AI for 5 years, or for 2 or 3 years, after previous therapy with tamoxifen (TMX)4, where the latter option is prescribed for pre/peri-menopausal women5.. However, reduced estrogen levels increase bone resorption and raise the risk of fracture that occurs after menopause1,6-9. Clinical guidelines for the management of bone loss associated with AI (AIBL: Aromatase Inhibitor associated Bone Loss) recommends a strict monitoring of bone mineral density (BMD) and other risk factors to assess the need for treatment with anti-resortive therapies10..

N2 - Adjuvant endocrine therapy with tamoxifen has a clearly established benefit in postmenopausal women with resected early breast cancer that expresses the estrogen receptor and/or progesterone receptor. Whereas there is a vast and long experience with tamoxifen, the major focus of clinical trials over the past 6 years has involved the study of the third-generation aromatase inhibitors. Recently published data from the Arimidex, Tamoxifen, Alone or in Combination (ATAC) trial, which involved only postmenopausal women and is the largest adjuvant trial ever conducted, has demonstrated superior efficacy for anastrozole over tamoxifen alone or in combination with anastrozole. These data have engendered a great deal of discussion as to whether they provide a sufficient basis for changing the standard of practice in terms of choice of agent. Currently, a case can be made ...
Postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer who took the aromatase inhibitor anastrozole for 2 years after an initial 5 years of adjuvant endocrine therapy received an equal benefit to those who took the drug for 5 additional years. The trial results suggest that a shorter duration of treatment may provide sufficient benefits while protecting women from harmful side effects, according to data from the Austrian Breast and Colorectal Cancer Study Group (ABCSG)-16 phase III trial presented by Gnant et al at the 2017 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (Abstract GS3-01).. In early-stage hormone receptor-positive breast cancer, the risk of relapse persists despite many advances in treatment, said Michael Gnant, MD, FACS, Director and Chairman of the Department of Surgery, Comprehensive Cancer Center, at the Medical University of Vienna. Adjuvant treatment with aromatase inhibitors has been demonstrated to improve disease-free survival of postmenopausal women with this subtype ...

BACKGROUND: The authors examined the published evidence on the use of aromatase inhibitors (AIs) in the adjuvant setting in postmenopausal, hormone receptor-positive patients, and they provide recommendations for clinical management in 3 different situations: newly diagnosed women, women who have already received tamoxifen for 2-3 years, and women who have completed 5-years of tamoxifen and are disease free.. METHODS: All double-blind, randomized, prospective studies were reviewed. Data sources included the MEDLINE data base, reviews, editorials, and experts.. RESULTS: The Arimidex, Tamoxifen Alone or in Combination (ATAC) trial, the Intergroup Exemestane Study (IES), and the MA-17 trial confirmed the superiority of AIs over tamoxifen in women with early-stage breast carcinoma, improving disease-free survival (DFS) considerably. In the ATAC trial, the 4-year DFS rate was 86.9% on anastrozole and 84.5% on tamoxifen (P = 0.03); in the IES, the 3-year DFS rate was 91.5% on exemestane and 86.8% on ...
Hormonal therapy reduces the risk of recurrence for women with early-stage breast cancer that is ER-and/or PR-positive. Standard therapy lasts 5 years. A new study looks at whether extending one type of hormonal therapy, known as aromatase inhibitor therapy, to 10 years lowers recurrence rates even more for these women. (7/26/16)
ESMO 2016. Recommended first-line treatments for postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive advanced/metastatic breast cancer include third-generation aromatase inhibitors (ie, anastrozole) or tamoxifen. Fulvestrant, is a complete estrogen receptor (ER) antagonist approved for the treatment of ER+ advanced breast cancer after aromatase inhibitors have failed. Although a previous phase 2 study was unable to show a difference in clinical benefit rate (CBR) between first-line fulvestrant and anastrozole in these patients, the median time to progression was significantly increased in patients receiving fulvestrant, which unusually translated into increased overall survival [OS], said Dr Matthew Ellis of Houston, TX, an author of the subsequent FALCON study.. The FALCON study was a phase 3, randomized, double-blind, multicenter trial designed to confirm the superiority of fulvestrant over anastrozole in postmenopausal women with ER+ and/or progesterone receptor-positive (PR+) advanced ...
The findings of the Intergroup Exemestane Study (IES) challenge the standard adjuvant endocrine therapy consisting of 5 years of tamoxifen therapy in women with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.

Quantification of vertebral bone marrow (VBM) water-fat composition has been proposed as advanced imaging biomarker for osteoporosis. Estrogen deficiency is the primary reason for trabecular bone loss in postmenopausal women. By reducing estrogen levels aromatase inhibitors (AI) as part of breast cancer therapy promote bone loss. Bisphosphonates (BP) are recommended to counteract this adverse drug effect. The purpose of our study was to quantify VBM proton density fat fraction (PDFF) changes at the lumbar spine using chemical shift encoding-based water-fat MRI (CSE-MRI) and bone mineral density (BMD) changes using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) related to AI and BP treatment over a 12-month period. Twenty seven postmenopausal breast cancer patients receiving AI therapy were recruited for this study. 22 subjects completed the 12-month study. 14 subjects received AI and BP (AI+BP), 8 subjects received AI without BP (AI-BP). All subjects underwent 3 T MRI. An eight-echo 3D spoiled gradient-echo

In order to understand the nature of resistance to AIs, this review has drawn upon endocrine, molecular and pathological measurements made in clinical material taken before and after therapy with AIs and upon observations from clinical trials in which AIs have been given as treatment either alone or in combination with other targeted agents. The major message from these studies is that no single reason can account for resistance in all cases and that there are multiple and diverse mechanisms by which breast cancers may avoid the restraints of AI therapy. The consequences of this are that a battery of tests and predictive markers may be needed in order to elucidate the nature of resistance in individual tumours and that if rational treatments to avoid or reverse resistance are based on an underlying mechanism, they also will be both varied and individually targeted.. In terms of general identification of resistance, assessment of ER is essential. However, in ER-positive tumours, additional ...
Joint Supplements for Aromatase Inhibitor Adverse Effects - Medscape, 11/18/11 - Aromatase inhibitors are widely used in the treatment of breast cancer but are associated with significant musculoskeletal adverse effects, including joint pain and stiffness ... We know that these symptoms are unresponsive to conventional pain medication and often lead to low adherence to aromatase inhibitor therapy ... The cohort consisted of postmenopausal breast cancer patents with stage I to III disease who had been on aromatase therapy for at least 3 months, who reported a pain rating of 4 or higher on a 10-point visual analog scale, and whose pain worsened after initiating treatment with aromatase inhibitors if they had preexisting osteoarthritis ...

Despite the fact that estrogen is essential for both quality and quantity of life, aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are regularly prescribed to most post-menopausal women with estrogen-sensitive breast cancer - even if they have low estrogen levels.
A significant amount of data has accumulated suggesting an important role for translational dysregulation in many cancer lineages, including breast cancer. It remained unclear, however, which of these alterations are the most significant determinants of cancer progression and poor patient outcomes. We sought to determine the association of translational regulators with clinical-pathologic factors and survival outcomes in hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. We found that high eEF2, S6, pS6 S240/244, p4E-BP1 T70, and low pdcd4 were significantly associated with node positivity. High p4E-BP1 T36/47, p4E-BP1 S65, p4E-BP1 T70 as well as total 4E-BP1 were associated with worse RFS. High p4E-BP1 T70 and pS6 S235/236, and low pdcd4, were associated with worse OS. In the multivariable analysis, in addition to positive nodes, high p4E-BP1 S65 remained a significant predictor of lower RFS. High pS6 S235/236, eEF2K and low pdcd4 were associated with lower OS. These results confirm that translational ...

We present a single-cell application to determine PIK3CA mutations in CTCs, which uncovered the degree of intra-patient heterogeneity in patients with metastatic hormone receptor-positive breast cancer (HR+ MBC) and high CTC count (>10 CTCs/7.5mL). Using CellSearch and DEPArray we isolated circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and white blood cells (WBCs) from peripheral blood and sequenced PIK3CA exons 9 and 20 by targeted amplicon sequencing. Comparative analysis between the primary tumor (PT, n=27 patients), circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA, n=31 patients), single (n=146 CTCs) and pools (n=70 CTC suspensions, ranging 5-120 cells/suspension) of CTCs from 26 patients and metastases/DTCs (n=11 patients) was performed. Mutations were frequent in PT (15/27 (55.5%)) and showed slight and substantial agreement with cfDNA (n=21; kappa=0.14) and CTCs (n=22; kappa=0.6733), respectively. A wild-type genotype in WBCs indicates a high specificity. Inter-compartmental concordance was observed in 13/18 (72.2%) ...
Adjuvant treatment with aromatase inhibitors improves outcomes in postmenopausal women with hormone-sensitive early breast cancer; however, they should not be used in premenopausal women. Menopausal status is the most important factor in the choice of the hormonal treatment. There is no direct correlation between amenorrhea and ovarian function, as even the patients with amenorrhea may present...
Exemestane, sold under the brand name Aromasin among others, is a medication used to treat breast cancer. It is a member of the class of antiestrogens known as aromatase inhibitors. Some breast cancers require estrogen to grow. Those cancers have estrogen receptors (ERs), and are called ER-positive. They may also be called estrogen-responsive, hormonally-responsive, or hormone-receptor-positive. Aromatase is an enzyme that synthesizes estrogen. Aromatase inhibitors block the synthesis of estrogen. This lowers the estrogen level, and slows the growth of cancers. Exemestane is indicated for the adjuvant treatment of postmenopausal women with estrogen-receptor positive early breast cancer who have received two to three years of tamoxifen and are switched to it for completion of a total of five consecutive years of adjuvant hormonal therapy. US FDA approval was in October 2005. Exemestane is also indicated for the treatment of advanced breast cancer in postmenopausal women whose disease has ...
Letrozole (Femara), an aromatase inhibitor currently used to prevent breast cancer recurrence in postmenopausal women, shows promise in the treatment
A randomized study in a similar patient population has demonstrated a small disease free-survival benefit when these patients receive an aromotase inhibitor, such as femara, after completing 5 years of tamoxifen, said Gary Freedman, M.D., a radiation oncologist at Fox Chase Cancer Center and lead author of the study. For this study, we looked at women who were free of cancer after completing all therapy, including five years of tamoxifen, to better define which women would benefit from taking an aromatase inhibitor rather than recommending it for all women ...
Vaginal atrophy symptoms such as dryness, irritation, and itching, are common after menopause. Vaginal estrogen therapy is the most effective treatment but not appropriate for all women. Women with estrogen-responsive breast cancer treated with aromatase inhibitor (AI) treatment, suppressing estrogen levels, often suffer from more pronounced vaginal atrophy symptoms. However, vaginal estrogen treatment is not recommended, leaving them without effective treatment options. The aim of this thesis was to study the effect of long-term anti-estrogen therapy on circulating estrogen levels and biochemical factors in vaginal mucosa in relation to morphological changes and clinical signs of vaginal atrophy.. Circulating estrogen levels were analyzed by use of mass spectrometry and radioimmunoassay. Immunohistochemistry was used to study vaginal proliferation and steroid hormone receptors in vaginal mucosa. Vaginal gene expression was studied by use of microarray technology and bioinformatic tools, and ...

Endocrine Therapy - A Guide to Help You Manage Aromatase Inhibitors (the drugs we love to hate). Tips to Manage Side Effects from Aromatase Inhibitors
The agents used for endocrine therapy in patients with breast cancer have changed markedly over the past decade. Tamoxifen remains the anti-oestrogen of choice, but could be replaced by the oestrogen receptor down-regulator ICI 182780 or by the fixed ring triphenylethylene arzoxifene (previously SERM III) soon. Whilst aminoglutethimide and 4-OH androstenedione were the aromatase inhibitors of choice, they have been replaced by non-steroidal (anastrozole and letrozole) and steroidal (exemestane) inhibitors of high potency and low side effect profile. Previously, often used treatments such as progestogens (megestrol acetate and medroxyprogesterone acetate) and androgens are now rarely used or confined to fourth or fifth line treatments. The LHRH agonist, goserelin, remains the treatment of choice for pre-menopausal patients with advanced breast cancer although recent randomised trials indicate a response, time to progression and survival advantage for the combination of goserelin and tamoxifen ...
Third generation aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are more effective than tamoxifen in the treatment of estrogen receptor (ER) positive breast cancer. However, long-term use of AIs commonly results in resistance. We examined whether compound JCC76{Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid [3-(2,5-dimethyl-benzyloxy)-4-(methanesulfonyl-methyl-amino)-phenyl]-amide}, an analog of Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor nimesulide, can inhibit the growth of AI-insensitive breast cancer cells and the mechanisms by which the compound affects cell proliferation. LTEDaro (long term estrogen deprived MCF-7aro cell) cells, which are a model for AI resistance, were used in this study. JCC76 effectively inhibited LTEDaro cell proliferation with an IC(50) of 2.75 ± 0.31 μM. Further investigations reveal that the compound significantly induced apoptosis in LTEDaro cells by decreasing pAKT, BCL-2 and pBad protein levels, which were all up regulated in the cells after long term estrogen deprivation. LTEDaro tumor size and weight were
Mechanism of Action Exemestane is an irreversible, steroidal aromatase inhibitor. No detectable effect on synthesis of adrenal corticosteroids or aldosterone. It inhibits the activity of aromatase, the principal enzyme responsible for the conversion of androstenedione to estrone, and testosterone to estradiol. Structurally related to androstenedione, one of the usual aromatase substrates, exemestane inactivates the enzyme by irreversibly binding to the active site on aromatase. ...
Aromatase cytochrome P450, the key enzyme of estrogen biosynthesis from androgens, is encoded by CYP19. Its structure shows some peculiarities: exons II to X encode the protein, while multiple alternative exons I encode unique 5-untranslated regions of the aromatase mRNA transcripts. Immunohistochemistry studies in the rat have shown that pituitary aromatase expression is sex-dependent and varies across the estrous cycle, suggesting that estrogens might be involved in the regulation of aromatase activity and might act locally as a paracrine or autocrine factor in the pituitary. In the present study, we used RT-PCR to characterize aromatase transcripts and real-time PCR to quantify the expression of the total aromatase mRNA at the different stages of the estrous cycle and from an ovariectomy and estradiol replacement model. We identified the two previously described aromatase transcripts with a specific 5untranslated region of the brain 1f and the gonadal PII transcripts. Total aromatase mRNA

Recently, everolimus, a mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor, combined with exemestane, an aromatase inhibitor, has been approved in Europe and the USA for patients suffering from estrogen receptor-positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer previously treated by a nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor, based on the results of BOLERO-2 (Breast cancer trials of OraL EveROlimus). This study showed a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in median progression-free survival. Results concerning the impact on overall ...
In an analysis of the Breast International Group (BIG) 1-98 trial reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Chirgwin et al found that poorer adherence to endocrine therapy was associated with poorer disease-free survival in postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer receiving adjuvant tamoxifen, letrozole, or sequential letrozole/tamoxifen or tamoxifen/letrozole for 5 years.. Study Details. The study analyzed the effects of early cessation of treatment (, 36 months vs ≥ 36 months) and treatment compliance score , 90% on disease-free survival among 6,144 patients receiving at least one dose of study drug. Compliance was defined as taking at least 80% of pills in a drug pack with no breaks longer than 1 week.. Effects of Lower Adherence. On multivariate analysis, early cessation of letrozole (hazard ratio [HR] = 1.45, P = .01), tamoxifen/letrozole (HR = 1.56, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.21-2.01), and letrozole/tamoxifen (HR = 1.57, 95% CI = 1.21-2.03) were ...
A recent study in conducted in Canada reveals that breast cancer patients treated with the drug Femara® (letrozole) several years after completing treatment with tamoxifen (Nolvadex®) have a reduced risk of a recurrence. These findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.. The majority of breast cancers are hormone receptor-positive. These cancers are stimulated to grow by the circulating female hormones estrogen and/or progesterone. Women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer are often treated with hormonal therapy, such as tamoxifen, for five years following completion of chemotherapy and radiation. Hormonal therapies act by blocking the estrogen from reaching the breast cancer cells, slowing or halting their growth. Femara is also an estrogen-blocking drug that is commonly prescribed to postmenopausal women diagnosed with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer.. Previous research indicates that 50% of breast cancer recurrences and deaths occur five or more years after ...
AT ACOG 2017. SAN DIEGO (FRONTLINE MEDICAL NEWS) - Continuation of tamoxifen for an additional 5 years is a cost-effective strategy that does not increase all-cause mortality for premenopausal women with estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer, based on an analysis using sophisticated computational modeling techniques. For premenopausal women with an early estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer who have completed 5 years of tamoxifen as initial treatment, another 5 years of tamoxifen is preferable to ovarian ablation with an aromatase inhibitor as extended endocrine treatment, Janice Kwon, MD , said at the annual meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The researchers sought to answer a key clinical question: What is the optimal endocrine strategy for premenopausal women who have completed 5 years of tamoxifen? Another 5 years of tamoxifen? An aromatase inhibitor preceded by ovarian ablation? Or no further treatment?. Dr. Kwon and her coinvestigators used a ...
Last year in San Antonio, the preliminary results of the ATAC trial were presented, in which the drug Arimidex was compared with Tamoxifen for the adjuvant treatment of early breast cancer. Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor, which decreases circulating estrogen in postmenopausal women by inhibiting the enzyme aromatase which converts androgens into estrogens, the principal source when the ovaries have shut down. The ovaries are the main source prior to menopause, which is why aromatase inhibitors can only be given to premenopausal women if they have ovarian ablation, either surgically through oopherectomy, or chemically, through a drug called Zoladex (goserelin). As mentioned earlier, tamoxifen, a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), works in an entirely different way, by selectively competing with estrogen for the estrogen receptors on the cancer cell. ATAC stands for Arimidex, Tamoxifen Alone or in Combination. ATAC is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind study involving 9,366 ...
Fadrozole is a nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor with potential antineoplastic activity. Fadrozole specifically inhibits aromatase, blocking the aromatization of androstenedione and testosterone into estrone and estradiol, respectively, the final step in estrogen biosynthesis; the reduction in estrogen levels may inhibit growth in estrogen-dependent cancers. Aromatase, a member of the cytochrome P-450 superfamily, is found in many tissues; overexpression has been linked to the development of preneoplastic and neoplastic changes in breast tissue. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.
Rebound XT by Designer Supplements and Gasparis Novedex XT apparently both contain the same substance, a steroidal aromatase inhibitor related to Exemestane. It seems to work better, or at least provide a better bang for the buck, than 6-oxo.. Reducing estrogen will cause testosterone to increase. Reducing estrogen too low for very long is unhealthy. Id only use something like this short-term, and then only if there is a good reason to temporarily lower estrogen.. I took a bottle of Rebound several months ago. Started at 3 caps/day for awhile, then 2, then 1 (tapered down to avoid estrogen rebound). It seemed to help reduce the size of some small lumps of gynecomastia I have.. I wouldnt take any AI for long periods unless I had a problem with excessive estrogen and was having levels tested periodically ...
Aromatase inhibitor (AI)-related bone loss is associated with increased fracture rates. Vitamin D might play a role in minimising this effect. We hypothesised that 25-hydroxy-vitamin D concentrations [25(OH)D] after 3 months supplementation might relate to bone loss after 1 year on AI therapy. We conducted a prospective cohort study from January 2006 to December 2011 of a consecutive sample of women initiating AI for early breast cancer who were ineligible for bisphosphonate therapy and stayed on treatment for 1 year (N = 232). Serum 25(OH)D was measured at baseline and 3 months, and lumbar spine (LS) bone mineral density at baseline and 1 year. Subjects were supplemented with daily calcium (1 g) and vitamin D(3) (800 IU) and additional oral 16,000 IU every 2 weeks if baseline 25(OH)D was |30 ng/ml. Linear regression models were fitted to adjust for potential confounders. After 1 year on AI therapy, 232 participants experienced a significant 1.68 % [95 % CI 1.15-2.20 %] bone loss at LS (0.017 g/cm(2) [0
ESR1 mutations are selected by prior aromatase inhibitor (AI) therapy in advanced breast cancer. We assessed the impact of ESR1 mutations on sensitivity to standard therapies in two phase III randomized trials that represent the development of the current standard therapy for estrogen receptor-positive advanced breast cancer.In a prospective-retrospective analysis, we assessed ESR1 mutations in available archived baseline plasma from the SoFEA (Study of Faslodex Versus Exemestane With or Without Arimidex) trial, which compared exemestane with fulvestrant-containing regimens in patients with prior sensitivity to nonsteroidal AI and in baseline plasma from the PALOMA3 (Palbociclib Combined With Fulvestrant in Hormone Receptor-Positive HER2-Negative Metastatic Breast Cancer After Endocrine Failure) trial, which compared fulvestrant plus placebo with fulvestrant plus palbociclib in patients with progression after receiving prior endocrine therapy. ESR1 mutations were analyzed by multiplex digital ...
Aromatase inhibitors (AI) are medications that inhibit the aromatase enzyme, which converts androgens to estrogens, resulting in suppression of estrogen production in postmenopausal women. Treatment of postmenopausal women diagnosed with hormone receptor positive breast cancer with adjuvant AI therapy for 5 years has resulted in significant improvements in disease free and overall survival. Despite their proven benefit, however, adherence to and persistence with AI therapy is poor. A key reason for non-persistence with therapy is the development of bothersome side effects that can have a negative impact on quality of life. Retrospective analyses have identified possible predictors of poor tolerance of therapy. Studies have also suggested that development of toxicity may be associated with better response to therapy. Because of the concern about non-persistence with therapy, especially in the setting of prescription of an oral medication for many years, there has been considerable research into ...
ASCO: American Society of Clinical Oncology, ESMO: European Society for Medical Oncology, NCCN: National Comprehensive Cancer Network, ARBI: Arimidex Bone Mass Index and Oral Bisphosphonates. Discussion. The results of our audit show that we are failing to meet our current national standards pertaining to management of AIBL in BC patients. Our literature review confirms that this is a widespread issue and that results from larger studies are in agreement with ours.. 25% of our patients never had a baseline BMD measurement. Similar findings have been reported in the literature11,12,14. However, Roberts et al report much higher rates of DEXA screening pre -AI10. Reasons for this were felt to be the presence of an institutional treatment algorithm as well as a survivorship programme.. We had a poor rate of repeat DEXA scans. Gibson et al and Spangler et al also noted that the highest rate of DEXA scanning was around the time of AI initiation compared to after initiation of therapy11,14. For the ...
000001). Importantly, these trials enrolled women who had not received endocrine therapy for their metastatic disease.. The phase III PALOMA-3 trial demonstrated a 5-month improved PFS in women with ER+ MBC who had progressed despite endocrine therapy for their metastatic disease, and were treated with palbociclib plus fulvestrant, versus fulvestrant alone (9.5 vs 4.6 months; HR, 0.46; P ,.0001). Together, these studies have elevated palbociclib plus letrozole as the preferred first-line therapy in women with ER+ MBC, and palbociclib plus fulvestrant as an effective therapy in patients with ER+ MBC not previously treated with palbociclib who have progressed on a nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor.. The success of palbociclib has spurred the development of other CDK4/6 inhibitors including ribociclib, which is now FDA approved in combination with fulvestrant, and abemaciclib, which has been granted an FDA breakthrough therapy designation. Numerous clinical trials are investigating these CDK4/6 ...
Estradiol (E2) in serum serves as an important diagnostic marker in a variety of clinical conditions in both men and women. Clinically, serum levels of E2 are used to assess ovarian function in women with menstrual disorders, precocious or delayed puberty, and assisted reproduction, as well as to monitor the effect of aromatase inhibitor treatment in breast cancer patients and determine postmenopausal status. In men, serum E2 is used to assess gynecomastia. In epidemiologic studies, circulating levels of E2 are often used to assess the etiologic role of estrogen in hormone-related conditions, including cancers of the breast, ovary, prostate, and liver. Accurate and reliable E2 assays are essential for the validity of such studies. This is especially important when measuring E2 levels in postmenopausal women or elderly men whose E2 levels are low (,30 pg/mL). The optimum assay for such measurements is gas or liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC- or LC-MS/MS) or RIA with preceding ...
Updated results from the NSABP B-42 trial, presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) this week, showed that giving 5 years of the aromatase inhibitor letrozole after 5 years of prior hormonal therapy resulted in a higher rate of disease-free survival in postmenopausal women.Background

OBJECTIVE Novel treatment strategies are needed in the treatment of endometriosis due to limited success rates with the currently available options. As inflammatory and immunological mechanisms have been shown to be involved in the mechanism of the disease, new modalities are likely to emerge. We investigated the effects of infliximab (INF), etanercept (ETA) and letrozole on the regression of experimental endometriosis. STUDY DESIGN In this experimental randomized trial, endometriosis was induced surgically in 44 adult female Sprague-Dawley rats. Establishment of implants was confirmed in 41 animals by a second operation on the 21st day. The rats were then randomly divided into four groups. Group I (n = 10) served as controls. Group II (n = 11) received letrozole (0.18 mg/kg, i.p.), group III (n = 10, i.p.) ETA (2.016 mg/kg, i.p.), and group IV (n = 10) INF (15.12 mg/kg, i.p.) for a second 21-day period. Endometriotic implant size along with peritoneal fluid VEGF level and immunoreactivity were
In this study, 147 women with stage I to III breast cancer were enrolled to receive letrozole (Femara) therapy and a standard dose of Vitamin D3 (600IU) plus calcium (1,200mg) daily. Patients were then randomly assigned to receive an additional 30,000IU/week of Vitamin D3 or placebo. Patients were assessed for Vitamin D3 levels at the onset of treatment and at weeks 12 and 24. Three patients, all in the placebo arm, discontinued therapy early due to musculoskeletal pain. In the Vitamin D arm, blood levels increased from 22ng/mL at baseline to 53ng/mL at week 12 and 57ng/mL at week 24. In the placebo arm, blood levels of Vitamin D3 increased from 25ng/mL at baseline to 32ng/mL at week 12 and 31ng/mL at week 24. When evaluated with the Simple Descriptive Pain Intensity Scale, 51% of the women in the placebo arm experienced a protocol-defined musculoskeletal event, compared with only 37% in the group treated with 30,000IU/week of Vitamin D3. Using the quantitative Brief Pain Inventory, 61% of ...

Testosterone - the primary substrate in the male body, which serves for the synthesis of estrogen (estradiol), the main female sex hormone. Despite the fact that the presence of estrogen may seem quite uncommon in men, this hormone is structurally very similar to testosterone. With a slight change in the enzyme aromatase, estrogen and can be produced in male organism. Aromatase activity in various parts of the body man, including adipose tissue, liver, sex organs, the organs of the central nervous system and in skeletal muscle tissues. The average number of healthy male estrogen produced usually not particularly affect the body, and may even be beneficial due to its effect on cholesterol levels. However, large amounts of it really has the potential for side effects, including such as water retention, the development of breast (gynaecomastia) and fat accumulation. For these reasons, many people prefer to minimize the intake of estrogenic activity of aromatase inhibitors such as Arimidex and ...

This medication is in a class of drug called aromatase inhibitors. Fempro has mainly been used to treat certain cases of breast cancer.. When the enzyme aromatase is inhibited by the letrozole medication, estrogen levels are suppressed in young women. This results in the brain and pituitary gland increasing the output of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone).. In women that have polycystic ovary syndrome or anovulation (a problem with ovulation) the increase in FSH hormone can result in development of a mature follicle in the ovary and ovulation of an egg. Doctors call this process induction of ovulation.. The anti-estrogen action of letrozole has been shown to be useful in pretreatment for termination of pregnancy, in combination with misoprostol. It can be used in place of mifepristone, which is expensive and unavailable in many countries.. Some studies have shown that letrozole can be used to promote spermatogenesis in male patients suffering from nonobstructive azoospermia.. Letrozole has ...

In their report, Kim and colleagues study the ability of changes in mammographic density over a period of 12 to 18 months to predict subsequent recurrence in 1,065 Korean women with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. Based on 80 recurrences, a clear gradient for lower recurrence rates was seen among women with larger density reductions - with recurrence rates being more than twofold higher in women with no reduction compared with those presenting a reduction ≥10%. This extends previous work on predicting the effectiveness of tamoxifen in individual women from the preventive setting to the adjuvant setting, and also includes women treated with aromatase inhibitors, where a slightly larger effect was seen ...

Aromatase is an important enzyme in the local synthesis of oestrogens and its expression has been shown to be increased in breast cancer through the activation of multiple promoters. However, the mechanisms behind this are not yet fully understood. A novel candidate in this context is the transcription factor forkhead box L2 (FOXL2), which has been recognised to be co-expressed with aromatase and transcriptionally active promoter 11 in developing goat and chicken ovaries. We propose that FOXL2 could be involved in the increased expression of aromatase in breast cancer. We examined FOXL2 and its relation to aromatase in 132 postmenopausal breast cancer patients by immunohistochemistry. Using in silico analysis, we further searched for FOXL2 binding-elements in the aromatase gene promoters. The results demonstrate that FOXL2 is expressed in breast cancer and influences clinical outcome with improved recurrence-free survival in cases with nuclear expression. In a multivariate Cox model, nuclear ...
It took me years and many other treatment methods that made the situation worse to talk a doctor into giving me clomid. Now my challenge is trying to talk this doctor into giving me Armidex in order to combat the elevated estrogen. Do you think Armidex would help. Miller: Im sorry you have had such trouble finding good care.. Yes, Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor which can prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. However, many times just losing weight can help since the aromatase enzyme is mostly found in fat cells. Miller First, thank you for all you do. I was actually assigned to CA operations with my company when it was discovered that I had prostate cancer.. My current urologist just put me on Clomiphene Citrate. I am a 58 year old male. About three years ago, I was feeling extraordinarily sluggish in all habits of my daily routine..

Five years of AI use after surgery or other primary treatment…
Results: Using real-time PCR, to quantify the influence on the expression of the ET axis, we found that ZD4054 significantly reduced ET-1, ETAR, and ECE-1 mRNA expression in MCF-7, MDA-MB-231, and MDA-MB-468 breast cancer cells in a concentration-dependent manner. Furthermore, we investigated the effect of ZD4054 on breast cancer cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. As expected from previous studies, proliferation of breast cancer cells was not affected by ZD4054. However, ZD4054 significantly reduced cellular migration by up to 26.7% (MDA-MB-468; P,0.001) and cellular invasion by up to 46.3% (MCF-7; P,0.001). In aromatase-overexpressing MCF-7aro cells, when either ZD4054 or the aromatase inhibitors were administered alone, there were minimal effects on cellular migration. However, combinations of ZD4054 with either anastrozole or letrozole produced significant reductions in cellular migration (P,0.05). In MCF-7 cells, combination of ZD4054 with the estrogen receptor downregulator, ...
DISCUSSION. AIS is a serious disease that causes unacceptably high morbidity and mortality rates worldwide. Treatment with tPA is the standard for AIS patients. However, the treatment with tPA alone usually fails to provide satisfactory outcomes due to the short treatment time window, which is only 3 to 4.5 hours. Therefore, how to extend this time window has become a focus of the AIS treatment. A previous study reported that the combined use of tPA and 3-methyl-1-phenyl-2-pyrazoline-5-one (a free radical scavenger) could significantly extend the ischemic therapeutic time, which in turn would increase survival rates and reduced the incidence of postoperative complications. In another study, Fisher and Albers found that the application of tPA under the guidance of advanced imaging can also extend the therapeutic time window of AIS. Although those newly developed techniques showed promising outcomes in the AIS treatment in comparison with tPA alone, all those treatments may fail to increase the ...
As an aromatase inhibitor, Arimidexs mechanism of action in blocking conversion of aromatizable steroids to estrogen, is in contrast to the mechanism of action of anti-estrogens such as clomiphene (Clomid) or tamoxifen (Nolvadex), which block estrogen receptors in some tissues, and activate estrogen receptors in others. During a cycle, if using Arimidex, there is generally no need to use Clomid as well. Arimidex is useful when one is prone to gynecomastia and using moderate amounts of such steroids. Arimidex can achieve a high degree of estrogen blockade.. Recommended Dosage:. With moderate doses of testosterone 0.5/mg daily is usually sufficient and in some cases may be too much.. ...
