Oestrogen receptor and tamoxifen drug, molecular model. Tamoxifen is a selective oestrogen receptor modulator (SERM) that blocks oestrogen production in breast tissue by inhibiting the oestrogen receptor. Some breast cancer cells require oestrogen to grow. Therefore, using tamoxifen to block oestrogen production can help prevent the cancer spreading.
