Details: Tamoxifen (tamoxifen systemic or Nolvadex) is a non-steroidal and triphenylene based drug. It acts primarily as an antioestrogen, preventing oestrogen binding to the oestrogen receptor at the tumour level, in breast cancer patients. Tamoxifen also has been reported to lead to maintenance of bone mineral density in post-menopausal women.

Some breast cancer cells are estrogen sensitive and require estrogen to grow. The estrogen binds to cancer cells and stimulates them to grow and divide. Tamoxifen prevents the binding of estrogen (a female hormone). Thus, Tamoxifen stops the cells from growing and in doing so, prevents or delays breast cancer recurrence.

Tamoxifen is used to treat both advanced and early stage breast cancer. It is also used to lower a woman's chance of developing breast cancer if she has a high risk, such as a family history of breast cancer.

Tamoxifen is used to treat Breast Cancer, Breast Cancer - Adjuvant, Breast Cancer - Male, Breast Cancer - Metastatic, Breast Cancer - Palliative, Breast Cancer - Prevention, McCune-Albright Syndrome and Precocious Puberty. It is also known to work through growth factors and the immune system and may provide some benefit even in patients whose tumors are not estrogen sensitive.
