Atamestane (developmental code name SH-489), also known as metandroden, as well as 1-methylandrosta-1,4-diene-3,17-dione, is a steroidal aromatase inhibitor that was studied in the treatment of cancer.[1] It blocks the production of estrogen in the body. The drug is selective, competitive, and irreversible in its inhibition of aromatase.[2][additional citation(s) needed]
