This randomized phase II trial studies how well androgen receptor antagonist ARN-509 works with or without abiraterone acetate, gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist, and prednisone in tr...
This is a phase 1B study to determine the effect of abiraterone acetate and prednisone on the conduction of electricity in the heart and the blood levels of abiraterone acetate and abirate...
This pilot clinical trial studies how well degarelix acetate before and during radiation therapy works in treating patients with prostate cancer. Androgens can cause the growth of prostate...
This phase II trial studies how well ARN-509 (androgen receptor antagonist ARN-509) works in treating patients with prostate cancer who are in active surveillance. Testosterone can cause t...
This research study is being offered to those patients who have already received radiation therapy and who are receiving long-term hormonal therapy for their prostate cancer and whose PSA ...
In recent years, therapeutic advances, together with new medication sequences and combinations, have improved outcomes for prostate cancer. For a long time, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) has been...
Abiraterone acetate (AA) is a prodrug of abiraterone, a selective and potent steroidal cytochrome P450 17alpha- hydroxylase-17,20-lyase (CYP17A1) blocking androgen synthesis in the treatment of advanc...
Abiraterone acetate suppresses adrenal androgens and glucocorticoids through the inhibition of CYP17; however, given the risk of mineralocorticoid excess, it is administered with glucocorticoids. Here...
Two male Asian elephants (bulls 1 and 2) in musth were subcutaneously injected with a long-acting gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist, degarelix acetate (240 μg/kg; total dose of 960 mg)...
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) has long been the gold standard for patients with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC). Clinical trials have demonstrated significant survival benefi...
An agent with anti-androgen and progestational properties. It shows competitive binding with dihydrotestosterone at androgen receptor sites.
A familial form of PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM transmitted as an X-linked recessive trait. These patients have a karyotype of 46,XY with end-organ resistance to androgen due to mutations in the androgen receptor (RECEPTORS, ANDROGEN) gene. Severity of the defect in receptor quantity or quality correlates with their phenotypes. In these genetic males, the phenotypic spectrum ranges from those with normal female external genitalia, through those with genital ambiguity as in Reifenstein Syndrome, to that of a normal male with INFERTILITY.
A thiazole derivative and atypical ANTIPSYCHOTIC AGENT that functions as a DOPAMINE D2 RECEPTOR ANTAGONIST; SEROTONIN 5-HT2 RECEPTOR ANTAGONIST, serotonin 5-HT7 receptor antagonist, and antagonist of the adrenergic α2A and α2C receptors, as well as a partial SEROTONIN 5-HT1A RECEPTOR AGONIST. It is used in the treatment of SCHIZOPHRENIA and BIPOLAR DISORDER.
A synthetic non-aromatizable androgen and anabolic steroid. It binds strongly to the androgen receptor and has therefore also been used as an affinity label for this receptor in the prostate and in prostatic tumors.
An androstene derivative that inhibits STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE and is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant PROSTATE CANCER.
