Minamestane (INN (former developmental code name FCE-24,928) is a steroidal aromatase inhibitor which was under development by Farmitalia-Carlo Erba as an antineoplastic agent in the mid-1990s but was never marketed.[1][2][3]

Unlike other steroidal aromatase inhibitors such as formestane and exemestane, minamestane does not have androgenic properties.[2]
