Clinical Trials [7241 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Flaxseed, Aromatase Inhibitors and Breast Tumor Characteristics

The proposed study plans to examine the effect of flaxseed consumption, a phytoestrogen rich food, compared to aromatase inhibitors as a complementary approach to treating estrogen recepto...

Maintenance Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs)+ Everolimus vs AIs in Hormone Receptor Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients

The purpose of this study is to compare maintenance Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs) + everolimus with Aromatase Inhibitors alone after 1st line chemotherapy in patients with HR+ metastatic brea...

Effect of Aromatase Inhibitors on Bones and Genes

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.

Aromatase Inhibitors Plus Chemotherapy vs Chemotherapy as Neoadjuvant Treatment in Postmenopausal HR(+) Breast Cancer

The investigators designed this study to investigate the effect of aromatase inhibitors (AI) plus chemotherapy versus chemotherapy as neoadjuvant treatment in postmenopausal hormone recept...

Capecitabine in Combination With Aromatase Inhibitor Versus Aromatase Inhibitors, in Hormonal Receptor Positive Recurrent or Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients, Randomized Controlled Study

Women with recurrent or metastatic breast cancer who are hormone receptor positive are candidates for first line hormonal therapy including aromatase inhibitors. In the past few years new ...

PubMed Articles [33591 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

Aromatase (CYP19) inhibition by biflavonoids obtained from the branches of Garcinia gardneriana (Clusiaceae).

Overexpression of aromatase in breast cancer cells may substantially influence its progression and maintenance. In this sense, the inhibition of aromatase is a key target for the treatment of breast c...

Bone effects of bisphosphonates and denosumab treatments in breast or prostate cancer.

Two types of bone diseases can be observed in patients with breast or prostate cancer: fragility fractures related to osteoporosis, and skeletal related events (SRE) complicating bone metastases. Arom...

Letrozole improves the sensitivity of breast cancer cells overexpressing aromatase to cisplatin via down-regulation of FEN1.

Flap endonuclease 1 (FEN1) is up-regulated by estrogen (17β-estradiol, E2) and related to cisplatin resistance of human breast cancer cells. Letrozole, an aromatase inhibitor, suppresses the change o...

Aromatase inhibitor and tamoxifen use and the risk of venous thromboembolism in breast cancer survivors.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is the second most common cause of death in hospitalized patients with cancer, and cancer treatments may exacerbate VTE risk. Patients with hormone-receptor-positive breas...

Osteoporosis in colorectal cancer survivors: analysis of the linkage between SWOG trial enrollees and Medicare claims.

To explore the rates of osteoporosis (diagnosis and screening) and fractures in colorectal cancer survivors (CRCS), records of clinical trial enrollees was linked to Medicare. Female/male risk of frac...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Compounds that inhibit AROMATASE in order to reduce production of estrogenic steroid hormones.

A selective aromatase inhibitor effective in the treatment of estrogen-dependent disease including breast cancer.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

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)
