Opeprim is an antineoplastic medication used in the treatment of adrenocortical carcinoma. Its main use is in those patients who have persistent disease despite surgical resection, those who are not surgical candidates, or those who have metastatic disease. In veterinary Opeprim is also used to treat pituitary-dependent Cushing's syndrome in canines. The medication is used in the controlled destruction of adrenal tissue, leading to a decrease in cortisol production.
