Arimidex MUTANT GEAR oral tablets consist of 1 mg Anastrozole (a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor). It is an anti-cancer drug used for the initial treatment of breast cancer in postmenopausal women. Most breast cancers depend on estrogen hormone for their growth. After menopause, the production of estrogen in the ovaries stops, but it continues in the adipose tissue of the body. In general, this occurs when the aromatase enzyme converts other enzymes into estrogen. This type of breast cancer is often called estrogen-positive breast cancer.
Anastrozole is an aromatase inhibitor. It works by blocking an aromatase enzyme responsible for producing estrogen in the body. Ultimately, this will lead to the reduction of tumor size or slowing of tumor development in some women.
Weightlifters are also targeted by the use of Arimidex for bodybuilding to reduce the effects of androgenic anabolic steroids that often interact with estrogen, leading to gynecomastia, otherwise known as breast hypertrophy in humans.
When is it used?
In general, this drug is used after surgery and other treatments to help reduce the risk of early breast cancer return. It is also used to control breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, also called secondary breast cancer.
