In brief: An anti-estrogen.

Nolvadex or tamoxifen is a serm (selective estrogen receptor modulator) that works as an anti-estrogenic drug and is most commonly used as first line treatment for breast cancer in females and males (1% of breast cancer occurs in males).
It is related to the steroid drugs, but absolutely should not be used for body building.
