Many women have breast cancer that tests positive for estrogen receptors
(ER+). This means that estrogen promotes the growth of the breast
cancer cells. T`amoxifen blocks the effects of estrogen on these cells.
It is often called an “anti-estrogen. “Tamoxifen powder
Tamoxifen Citrate is agent that demonstrates potent anti-estrogenic
properties. The drug is technically an estrogen agonist/antagonist,
which competitively binds to estrogen receptors in various target
tissues. With the t`amoxifen molecule bound to this receptor, estrogen
is blocked from exerting any action, and an anti-estrogenic effect is
achieved. Since many forms of breast cancer are responsive to estrogen,
the ability of t`amoxifen citrate to block its action in such cells has
proven to be a very effective treatment. It is also utilized
successfully as a preventative measure, taken by people with an
extremely high familial tendency for breast cancer.
