Alternative Name: Antiestrogen ICI 182780, Fulvestrant
Description: Faslodex induces infertility by diluting epididymal sperm, without blocking the reproductive tract. Targets estrogen receptor-alpha, dominant in only one region of the male reproductive tract in rats, but not dogs or marmosets at non-toxic doses-- the efferent ductules. Does not target the androgen receptor or testosterone, the dominant male hormone pathway.
