Pharmacodynamics

Enzalutamide (Indenza) is a competitive androgen receptor inhibitor that influences multiple stages of the signaling pathway. It works by inhibiting androgen binding to its receptor, androgen receptor nuclear translocation, and subsequent interaction with DNA. As a result, the proliferation of prostate cancer cells decreases which ultimately leads to apoptosis and decreased tumor volume.

Usage

Indenza (Enzalutamide) acts by preventing testosterone from playing a role in the adrenal glands. The drug works by inhibiting androgen receptors on the surface of prostate cancer cells. Because the hormone is unable to attach to androgen receptors, cancer cells cannot proliferate anywhere in the body. Complete your dosing schedule as directed by your medical professional.
