Bicalutamide is an oral non-steroidal anti-androgen for prostate cancer. It binds to the androgen receptor.
When bicalutamide is combined with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analogue therapy, the suppression of serum testosterone induced by the LHRH analogue is not affected. However, in clinical trials with bicalutamide as a single agent for prostate cancer, rises in serum testosterone and oestradiol have been noted.
How To Cassotide 50mg Work?
Bicalutamide is a non-steroid anti-androgen; it has no additional endocrine activity. It is bound to androgen receptors without activating gene expression and thereby inhibits androgen stimulation. The result of this inhibition is the regression of prostate tumours.
In a subset of patients who have been treated with bicalutamide and an LHRH agonist, and who discontinue bicalutamide therapy due to progressive advanced prostate cancer, a reduction in the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and/or clinical improvement (anti-androgen withdrawal phenomenon) may be observed.
Bicalutamide is a racemate, with its anti-androgenic activity being almost exclusively in the (R)-enantiomer.
