Effect of selective estrogen receptor modulators on metabolic homeostasis.

Abstract

Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) are estrogen receptor (ER) ligands that exhibit either estrogen agonistic or antagonistic activity in a tissue-specific manner. The first and second generation SERMs, tamoxifen and raloxifene, are used for treatment of ER positive breast cancer and postmenopausal osteoporosis respectively. The third-generation… (More)
