tamoxifen One of the SELECTIVE ESTROGEN RECEPTOR MODULATORS with tissue-specific activities. Tamoxifen acts as an anti-estrogen (inhibiting agent) in the mammary tissue, but as an estrogen (stimulating agent) in cholesterol metabolism, bone density, and cell proliferation in the ENDOMETRIUM.
toremifene A first generation selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). Like TAMOXIFEN, it is an estrogen agonist for bone tissue and cholesterol metabolism but is antagonistic on mammary and uterine tissue.
ospemifene an estrogen agonist/antagonist with tissue selective effects, its biological actions are mediated through binding to estrogen receptors, this binding results in activation of estrogenic pathways in some tissues (agonism) and blockade of estrogenic pathways in others (antagonism)
lasofoxifene a SERM whose biological actions are largely mediated through binding to estrogen receptors, this binding results in the activation of some estrogenic pathways and a blockade of others, Lasofoxifene produces tissue and cell-specific effects in estrogen-responsive tissues
ormeloxifene A non-steroidal anti-fertility agent with anti-hormonal properties.
raloxifene A second generation selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) used to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It has estrogen agonist effects on bone and cholesterol metabolism but behaves as a complete estrogen antagonist on mammary gland and uterine tissue.
clomifene A triphenyl ethylene stilbene derivative which is an estrogen agonist or antagonist depending on the target tissue. Note that ENCLOMIPHENE and ZUCLOMIPHENE are the (E) and (Z) isomers of Clomiphene respectively.
bazedoxifene an estrogen agonist/antagonist that acts as an agonist in some estrogen-sensitive tissues and an antagonist in others
