WHAT IS XTANDI 40 MG ?
Enzalutamide is categorized as an antiandrogen. Antiandrogens are substances that block the effects of testosterone. Cancer of the prostate depends on the male hormone testosterone or related androgens for its growth. If the amount of androgens are reduced it is possible to slow down or shrink the cancer.
Enzalutamide is used for the treatment of metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (prostate cancer that is resistant to medical or surgical treatments that lower testosterone). Enzalutamide also prevents the androgens from working within the prostate cancer cells.
