Qubol 1mg Anastrozole)
Qubol (Anastrozole), brand name arimidex, is a nonst***dal aromatase inhibitor which inhibits the production of estrogen in post-menopausal women. It is most frequently prescribed to combat or prevent certain types of breast cancers which thrive on estrogen. By lowering estrogen levels in the body, these cancers are unable to grow and spread. Qubol (Anastrozole) may be used as a preventative measure in women at high risk of developing breast cancer, to prevent cancer growth in the other breast, or to treat early or advanced stages of existing cancer. It is frequently used in conjunction with other medications, as an adjuvant treatment, or when other medications have failed to produce results.
Qubol (Anastrozole) is used in the treatment of early-stage breast cancer in post-menopausal women. It is also used in the treatment of advanced (that has spread within the breast or to other parts of the body) breast cancer in post-menopausal women previously treated with drug tamoxifen.

What does Qubol (Anastrozole) do?
Anastrodex is a hormonal therapy used to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women with estrogen sensitive breast cancer. In postmenopausal women the main source of estrogen is via conversion of androgens (aromatization) by the aromatase enzyme in the fatty tissues of the body. Qubol (Anastrozole) is a drug that blocks the aromatization process, and so reduces the amount of estrogen in the body. As less estrogen can reach the cancer cells, they grow more slowly or stop growing altogether. In addition, Qubol (Anastrozole) can be used to treat infertility caused by polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos).
How does Qubol (Anastrozole) work?
Qubol (Anastrozole) reversibly inhibits the enzyme responsible for conversion of testosterone to estrogen. It works by binding to the enzyme and making it unable to carry out its usual functions.
Many breast cancers are stimulated to grow by the estrogen and progesterone. Such cancers can be treated with drugs that block the effects of these hormones. In postmenopausal women, estrogen is mainly produced through conversion of androgens (sex hormones produced by the adrenal glands) to estrogens. This process is called aromatisation and takes place mainly in the fatty tissues, muscles and the skin, and requires aromatase enzyme. Qubol (Anastrozole) blocks the process of aromatisation this way lowering the amount of estrogen in the body. In advanced breast cancer the cancerous cells may grow more slowly or stop growing completely.
