A molecular model of tamoxifen, a prescription drug used to treat or prevent breast cancer. Tamoxifen acts as an estrogen receptor antagonist in breast tissue to prevent the growth of cancer cells, yet behaves as an agonist in other tissues. As a result, one of the side effects of tamoxifen includes an increased risk of endometrial cancer. Atoms are colored dark gray (carbon), light gray (hydrogen), red (oxygen) and blue (nitrogen).
