TAMOXIFEN CITRATE



Altamofen


Indication:


Altamofen (Tamoxifen) is used to treat breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic breast cancer), to treat breast cancer in certain patients after surgery and radiation therapy, and to reduce the chances of breast cancer in high-risk patients.

This medication can block the growth of breast cancer. It works by interfering with the effects of estrogen in the breast tissue.



Brand name: Altamofen

Active Ingeridents:TamoxifenCitrate

Company Name:Alpha Pharma

Package: 10 Tabs in strip

Strength :20mg

Mechanism of action:


Altamofen (Tamoxifen) itself is a prodrug, having relatively little affinity for its target protein, the estrogen receptor. It is metabolized in the liver by thecytochrome P450 isoform CYP2D6 and CYP3A4 into active metabolites such as 4-hydroxytamoxifen (afimoxifene) and N-desmethyl-4-hydroxytamoxifen (endoxifen) which have 30-100 times more affinity with the estrogen receptor than Altamofen (Tamoxifen ) itself. These active metabolites compete with estrogen in the body for binding to the estrogen receptor. In breast tissue, 4-hydroxy Altamofen (Tamoxifen) acts as an estrogen receptor antagonist so that transcription of estrogen-responsive genes is inhibited.


Dosage and Administration:


The dose for metastatic breast cancer treatment, DCIS, and prevention of breast cancer is 10 mg twice daily or 20 mg once daily for 5 years. The dose for stimulation of ovulation is 5-40 mg twice daily for 4 days. Altamofen (Tamoxifen) can be taken with food.
