Nolvadex Tamoxifen

nolvadex tamoxifen

what is nolvadex tamoxifen ?

  • Tamoxifen is the oldest and most-prescribed selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). Tamoxifen is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat:
  • women and men diagnosed with hormone-receptor-positive, early-stage breast cancer after surgery (or possibly chemotherapy and radiation) to reduce the risk of the cancer coming back (recurring)
  • women and men diagnosed with advanced-stage or metastatic hormone-receptor-positive disease
  • Tamoxifen also is used to:
  • reduce breast cancer risk in women who haven't been diagnosed but are at higher-than-average risk for the disease
  • Tamoxifen won't work on hormone-receptor-negative breast cancer.
  • Tamoxifen is available in two forms: a pill taken once a day (brand name: Nolvadex) or a liquid form (brand name: Soltamox). If you dislike pills or you're having trouble swallowing tamoxifen pills, Soltamox can help make it easier to stay on your treatment plan.

Benefits of tamoxifen

Since its approval in 1998, tamoxifen has been used to treat millions of women and men diagnosed with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer. While an aromatase inhibitor is the first hormonal therapy medicine choice for postmenopausal women, tamoxifen is the first choice for premenopausal women and is still a good choice for postmenopausal women who can't take an aromatase inhibitor.

Tamoxifen can:

  • reduce the risk of breast cancer coming back by 40% to 50% in postmenopausal women and by 30% to 50% in premenopausal women
  • reduce the risk of a new cancer developing in the other breast by about 50%
  • shrink large, hormone-receptor-positive breast cancers before surgery
  • slow or stop the growth or advanced (metastatic) hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer in both pre- and postmenopausal women
  • lower breast cancer risk in women who have a higher-than-average risk of disease but have not been diagnosed.

Medical Definition of Nolvadex (tamoxifen)

Nolvadex (tamoxifen): An antiestrogen (a drug that blocks the effects of estrogen) which competes with estrogen for binding sites in target tissues such as breast.

Tamoxifen has been widely publicized. It was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat breast cancer and help prevent it in women at high risk for the disease and, then in 2000, to treat women who have had surgery and radiation for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) to lower the risk of invasive breast cancer arising from the intraductal carcinoma.
