- ‘Can you use tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor to prevent breast cancer in the first place?’

- ‘It binds to aromatase (the enzyme that converts testosterone to estrogen), holding it until it is destroyed.’
- ‘Testosterone is actually converted to oestrogen as it enters the brain by an enzyme we call aromatase Not all of it, and we don't know how much of it's converted to oestrogen.’
- ‘A group of estrogen-blocking drugs called aromatase inhibitors have proven effective in preventing breast cancer from recurring after surgery.’
- ‘Unlike other aromatase inhibitors, exemestane is a steroidal aromatase inactivator, which means it selectively targets and irreversibly binds to the aromatase enzyme, which is required to produce estrogen.’
