Femara (letrozole) is a member of a class of drugs called aromatase inhibitors which are very effective in the treatment of postmenopausal women with hormone-sensitive (estrogen receptor +) breast cancer.
This may be used alone or in combination with traditional chemotherapy, depending on the cancer stage and the patient's health status.
