Arimidex (ah-RIM-i-dex) is a brand-new drug
Arimidex (ah-RIM-i-dex) is a brand-new drug...for post-menopausal women whose cancer progresses despite treatment with tamoxifen (Nolvadex).
The standard therapy has been megestrol (Megace). But Arimidex seems to be as effective...without causing weight gain.
Arimidex is called an aromatase inhibitor. Blocking this enzyme inhibits estrogen PRODUCTION in peripheral tissues.
