Altrol is indicated for adjuvant treatment of postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive early breast cancer.
Altrol is indicated for the first-line treatment of postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive or hormone receptor unknown locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
Altrol is indicated for the treatment of advanced breast cancer in postmenopausal women with disease progression tamoxifen therapy.
Many breast cancers need supplies of the hormone oestrogen to grow. In women who have had their menopause, the main source of oestrogen is through the conversion of androgens (sex hormones produced by the adrenal glands) into oestrogens. This is carried out by an enzyme called aromatase. The conversion process, known as aromatisation, happens mainly in the fatty tissues of the body.
This medication is used to treat breast cancer in women who have gone through "the change of life" (menopause). Anastrozole works by lowering estrogen hormone levels to help shrink tumors and slow their growth.
