It is used as an anticancer drug. Pharmacogenetics is based on the synthesis of estradiol and a delay in the formation of the aromatase enzyme. This is important because in postmenopausal women, metabolism is reduced and the formation of enzymes, such as androstenedione, which is converted to estradiol, slows down. A reduced level of estradiol is a clinical manifestation of breast cancer in postmenopausal women.
Anastrozole is prescribed to promote the conversion of androstenedione to estradiol.
Anastrozole is indicated for use in women as a therapy for hormonal and other types of breast cancer.
The drug has several contraindications:
• hypersensitivity to the components of the drug;
