Aromatase, a cytochrome P450 enzyme complex present in breast tissues, plays a significant role in the biosynthesis of important endogenous estrogens from androgens. The source of estrogen production ...
Breast cancer, an emerging disease among the women population, occurs due to overexpression of estrogens. The enzyme aromatase plays a key rate limiting role in the biosynthesis of estrogens. Certain ...
Aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are most commonly used for breast cancer patients with hormone receptor positive disease. Although the side effect profile of aromatase inhibitors is well known, including c...

Ginkgo biloba has been used in herbal medicines for thousands of years. Although a standard Ginkgo biloba extract, EGb 761 has been used to improve cognition in breast cancer patients, its effects on ...
A selective aromatase inhibitor effective in the treatment of estrogen-dependent disease including breast cancer.
An aromatase inhibitor that produces a state of "medical" adrenalectomy by blocking the production of adrenal steroids. It also blocks the conversion of androgens to estrogens. Aminoglutethimide has been used in the treatment of advanced breast and prostate cancer. It was formerly used for its weak anticonvulsant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p454)
Any neoplasms of the male breast. These occur infrequently in males in developed countries, the incidence being about 1% of that in females.
Neoplasms, usually carcinoma, located within the center of an organ or within small lobes, and in the case of the breast, intraductally. The emphasis of the name is on the location of the neoplastic tissue rather than on its histological type. Most cancers of this type are located in the breast.
Compounds that inhibit AROMATASE in order to reduce production of estrogenic steroid hormones.
