Bicalutamide Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Bicalutamide is an oral non-steroidal anti-androgen used in the treatment of prostate cancer and hirsutism. Bicalutamide acts as a pure anti-androgen by binding to the androgen receptor (AR) and preventing the activation of the AR and subsequent upregulation of androgen responsive genes by androgenic hormones. Bicalutamide is indicated for the treatment of stage D2 metastatic prostate cancer in combination with a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analogue or as a monotherapy. It has also been used in clinical trials for ovarian cancer. It has also been used in combination with castration. Bicalutamide is currently tested for treatment of andogen receptor positive metastatic breast cancer.
