Bexarotene is a synthetic retinoid analog with specific affinity for the retinoid X receptor and belongs to a group of compounds called rexinoids. It is an oral, noncytotoxic drug that was approved in Europe and in the U.S.A. for the treatment of refractory advanced-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. The receptor-selective retinoids might be particularly useful in preventing ER-negative breast cancer.
