    Name Bicalutamide
    Groups approved
    Description Bicalutamide is an oral non-steroidal anti-androgen for prostate cancer. It binds to the androgen receptor.
    Synonyms Casodex
    Brand names Casodex
    Affected organism Humans and other mammals
    Indication For treatment (together with surgery or LHRH analogue) of advanced prostatic cancer.
    Pharmacology Bicalutamide is an antineoplastic hormonal agent primarily used in the treatment of prostate cancer. Bicalutamide is a pure, nonsteroidal anti-androgen with affinity for androgen receptors (but not for progestogen, estrogen, or glucocorticoid receptors). Consequently, Bicalutamide blocks the action of androgens of adrenal and testicular origin which stimulate the growth of normal and malignant prostatic tissue. Prostate cancer is mostly androgen-dependent and can be treated with surgical or chemical castration. To date, antiandrogen monotherapy has not consistently been shown to be equivalent to castration.
    Mechanism of action Bicalutamide competes with androgen for the binding of androgen receptors, consequently blocking the action of androgens of adrenal and testicular origin which stimulate the growth of normal and malignant prostatic tissue.
