How does Xtandi work?
Enzalutamide acts as a selective silent antagonist of the androgen receptor (AR), the biological target of androgens like testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Unlike the first-generation NSAA bicalutamide, enzalutamide does not promote translocation of AR to the cell nucleus and in addition prevents binding of AR to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and AR to coactivator proteins. As such, it has been described as an AR signaling inhibitor in addition to antagonist.The drug is described as a “second-generation” NSAA because it has greatly increased efficacy as an antiandrogen relative to so-called “first-generation” NSAAs like flutamide and bicalutamide. The drug has only 2- to 3-fold lower affinity for the AR relative to DHT, the endogenous ligand of the AR in the prostate gland
