About Elacestrant (RAD1901)

Elacestrant is a selective estrogen receptor down-regulator/degrader (SERD), which at high doses is being evaluated for potential use as an oral non-steroidal treatment for hormone-driven or hormone-resistant breast cancer. Elacestrant is currently being investigated for potential use in postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, the most common form of the disease. Studies completed to date indicate that the compound has the potential for use as a single agent or in combination with other therapies for the treatment of breast cancer.
