Details

Xtane (Generic Exemestane) is an effective anticancer drug (Aromatase inhibitor) indicated to treat breast carcinoma in postmenopausal females. This medication lowers the levels of estrogen in postmenopausal females, which may delay the growth of various types of breast carcinomas (for example hormone-receptor positive breast cancer) that require estrogen to grow in the body. This medication is usually approved for patients when radiation, surgery or other anti-cancer drugs have not improved their condition. Xtane is often given to females whose carcinoma has advanced even after consuming Tamoxifen for 2 to 3 years.

Xtane is recognized as Aromatase inhibitor i.e. it blocks an estrogen producing enzyme named as Aromatase. This medicine works by reducing the estrogen level and thereby slowing down the cancerous growth.
