Description: Fulvestrant is a muscle injection drug developed by the company AstraZeneca and is suitable for treating postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor-positive metastasized breast cancer whose condition continued to worsen despite antiestrogen treatment. Fulvestrant is the only antiestrogen drug that can be widely clinically used following unsuccessful tamoxifen treatment. This drug is a type of endocrine therapy, so it will not cause any adverse effects commonly seen in chemotherapy, giving it relatively good patient compliance. Multiple clinical trials have found that 250mg Fulvestrant is effective and consistently safe as a second line of treatment for advanced breast cancer.
Fulvestrant has a relatively poor oral bioavailability, so it is commonly injected into the muscle with lipids as excipients. In an open, random and multicenter study on postmenopausal women with advanced breast cancer, one 5ml or 2 2.5ml dosages containing 250mg were injected, and their pharmacokinetics and poisonous side effects did not differ greatly, while its blood concentration was dose-dependent and had individual differences. In the 7-day treatment period, serum LH, FSH or SBHG levels did not change significantly. This drug does not pass through the blood-brain barrier and will not cause side effects such as vasomotor symptoms.
