Brief description of Xtane:

Xtane with an active ingredient Exemestane is used in the management of certain type of breast cancer especially in the women who have to attain the menopause. Xtane acts mainly by slowing down the growth of cancer which needs estrogen for the growth of cancer.

Mechanism of action for Xtane:

Exemestane is the principal enzyme that converts androgens to estrogens both in pre- and postmenopausal women. Estrogen deprivation through aromatase inhibition is an effective and selective treatment for some postmenopausal patients with hormone-dependent breast cancer. It acts as a false substrate for the aromatase enzyme, and is processed to an intermediate that binds irreversibly to the active site of the enzyme causing its inactivation. Exemestane significantly lowers circulating estrogen concentrations in postmenopausal women, but has no detectable effect on the adrenal biosynthesis of corticosteroids or aldosterone. This reduction in serum and tumor concentrations of estrogen delays tumor growth and disease progression.

Xtane is available in the strength of 25mg tablets. It should be taken as prescribed by the physician. Normally, an individual has to take one tablet once or twice a day before or after the meals.
