Raloxifene (Evista®) is een SERM (selective estrogen receptor modulator). Het is geen hormoon, maar bootst het effect na van oestrogeen in onder andere het bot en borstweefsel. De stof neemt (voor een deel) de plaats in van oestrogeen op de oestrogeenreceptor en heeft daarmee invloed op het proces ’oestrogeen > oestrogeen-receptor > receptor response > eindproduct’.
