CYP19 Genetic Polymorphism & Aromatase Inhibitor(AI)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between the side effects(especially arthralgia and arthritis) which appear in the patients who are prescribed aromatase inhibitor(AI) and the CYP19 genetic polymorphisms.

Many women with breast cancer who are treated with aromatase inhibitor medications develop aches and pains during treatment, and some develop numbness and tingling in their hands and feet....
The primary objective of this 2-year pilot project is to test the hypothesis that skeletal response to aromatase inhibitors is determined by polymorphisms of the CYP19 gene.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
