Exemestane and Its Active Metabolite 17-Hydroexemestane Induce UDP-Glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 2B17 Expression in Breast Cancer Cells.


PMID 28404691

Abstract

Exemestane (EXE) is an aromatase inhibitor indicated for endocrine therapy of breast cancer in postmenopausal women. The primary active metabolite of EXE, 17-hydroexemestane (17-HE), is inactivated via glucuronidation, mainly by UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 2B17 (UGT2B17). UGT2B17 also has a primary role in inactivation of endogenous androgens testosterone and dihydrotestosterone and may play an important role in regulation of breast and prostate tumor intracrinology. We recently reported that
