Tamoxifen is thought to act primarily by occupying the estrogen receptor and blocking the growth-stimulatory action of estradiol. For example, estradiol stimulates the proliferation of the human mammary tumor derived cell line MCF-7 either in culture [10, 11] or when the cells are inoculated into athymic mice [12-16]. This estrogen-induced proliferation can be blocked by simultaneous treatment with tamoxifen [11, 12, 15, 16]. However, if tamoxifen is removed, and the estrogenic stimulus is maintained, growth recurs - indicating that cells treated with tamoxifen are held in nonproliferative stasis but not killed [15, 16].
