Product Description

Letrohope

LETROHOPE 2.5MG contains letrozole which belongs to a group of medicines called aromatase inhibitors. It is a hormonal breast cancer treatment.

Oestrogens, the female sex hormones stimulate the growth of breast cancer. This medicine works by blocking an enzyme aromatase which is responsible for the production of oestrogens and thus reduces the amount of oestrogen in the body.

It is also used in preventing spreading of tumour to the other parts of body in patients with advanced breast cancer.

It can be used as first treatment in such cases where immediate breast cancer surgery is not suitable or as a follow up treatment after five years of treatment with tamoxifen. Children and adolescents should not use this medicine.
