What is Fempro 2.5Mg?
Fempro is an anti-oestrogenic agent which contains Letrozole as the active ingredient. It is used as a first line of treatment for breast cancer in post-menopausal women. It is also available as Femara.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
Fempro is anaromatase inhibitor which hampers the synthesis of estrogen in the body. In post-menopausal women, estrogen is secreted by fat cells throughout the body. This process requires an enzyme aromatase for the conversion of estrogen. Estrogen is also produced by breast cancer cells. Fempro inhibits this enzyme thereby ceasing the growth of the tumor.
