About FASLODEX

FASLODEX may be an option for you

FASLODEX is used to treat hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer in postmenopausal women whose disease has spread after treatment with antiestrogen medicine, such as tamoxifen.

If you have been diagnosed with hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast
cancer, your doctor may have discussed hormonal therapy. Antiestrogen therapy is a type of hormonal therapy that treats breast cancers that depend on estrogen for growth. FASLODEX is an antiestrogen therapy.

If you are postmenopausal and your hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer has spread following treatment with an antiestrogen medicine, your doctor may decide to try FASLODEX.

Estrogen receptors are found in and on breast cells. Estrogen binds to estrogen receptors, like a key fitting into a lock. This can activate the receptor and cause hormone receptor-positive tumors to grow. FASLODEX binds to and blocks estrogen receptors and reduces the number of estrogen receptors in breast cells.

For over a decade, doctors have relied on FASLODEX to help slow the growth of metastatic breast tumors that are fueled by estrogen. It is prescribed to treat postmenopausal women with hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer whose disease has spread after treatment with antiestrogen medicine.
