Anastrozole is a medication that inhibits the enzyme aromatase to suppress testosterone conversion to estrogens.
Anastrozole is used in combination with other treatments for suppressing testosterone conversion to estrogens. It can be used in combination with other treatments, typically men using testosterone therapy to prevent conversion to estrogens; and in breast cancer and prostate cancer patients to inhibit endogenous estrogen production that could stimulate estrogen-sensitive tumor growth. It is most often used for hormone-receptive breast cancer.
It works by binding to the aromatase enzyme and blocking the conversion of androgens to estrogens in peripheral tissues. Off-label it is commonly used to decrease the production of estrogen in men and is also used as part of a treatment plan for women with endometriosis.
