Thormiphene Drug Information

Medication Information: Treatment options for women with breast cancer include surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. A combination of two or more of these methods is often used for treatment. Tormifen is a hormone therapy drug.

In some breast cancers, the female hormone estrogen is increased in the body. Cancer cells have receptors on their surface that bind to estrogen; these types of tumors are called hormone-receptor-positive cancers. Thormiphene blocks the binding of estrogen to cancer cells by blocking these receptors. This mechanism helps control cancer. It is prescribed for cancers in which cells have migrated to other parts of the body, such as the lungs, liver and bones. This type of cancer is called metastatic breast cancer or secondary breast cancer.
