  • aromatase-inhibiting drug


Arimidex by AstraZeneca (generic name Anastrozole) is an aromatase-inhibiting drug approved for treatment of breast cancer after surgery as well as for metastasis in both pre & post-menopausal women.

Arimidex (anastrozole) lowers estrogen levels in postmenopausal women, which may slow the growth of certain types of breast tumors that need estrogen to grow in the body.  It is often given to women whose cancer has progressed even after taking tamoxifen (Nolvadex, Soltamox).
