Tamoxifen (tmx) is a non-steroidal triphenylethylene derivative that is predominantly known as a competitive antagonist at the estrogen receptor and is used in the treatment of breast cancer. Recent studies suggest that tamoxifen is also beneficial in the treatment of brain metastases and primary brain tumors. Tmx accumulates in brain and its concentration can be up to 46-fold higher than in serum. Therefore, astrocytes may be exposed to tmx in vivo.
