Two new aromatase inhibiting drugs, Femara and Aromasin , have come out recently that may prove to be more cost effective than Arimidex . The promotional literature on Aromasin says that it is more effective than other aromatase inhibitors because it permanently binds to the aromatase enzyme, whereas Arimidex only temporarily binds to the aromatase enzyme. In simple English, this means that Aromasin should be more potent and longer acting than Arimidex. Since Aromasin’s cost is almost exactly the same as Arimidex but is potentially more potent, it could turn out to be the more cost effective option. However, the Aromasin promotional literature is quick to point out that "the clinical relevance of these differences in mechanism of action has not
found this on the net....permanently binds to alpha5....hmmm..also on another site it says something about it being irreversible...hmm wonder what that means...
AROMASIN Tablets for oral administration contain 25 mg of exemestane, an irreversible, ********* aromatase inactivator. Exemestane is chemically described as 6-methylenandrosta-1,4-diene-3, 17-dione. Its molecular formula is C20H24O2.
