Languages of publication
Leczenie hormonalne jest jedną z podstawowych opcji terapeutycznych w leczeniu raka piersi, zarówno miejscowo zaawansowanego, jak i przerzutowego. Standardem od wielu lat pozostaje tamoksyfen, jednak wyniki nowych badań klinicznych wskazują na inhibitory aromatazy jako na wartościową alternatywę w terapii pacjentek po menopauzie. Eksemestan jest steroidowym inhibitorem aromatazy, którego skuteczność została udowodniona na podstawie wyników badań omówionych w poniższym artykule.
