An enhanced sebaceous gland activity with production of proinflammtory sebaceous lipids belongs to the major pathogenetic factors of acne. Hormonal antiandrogen treatment targets the androgen-metabolizing cells of the pilosebaceous unit, i. e. follicular kertinocytes and sebocytes, and leads to sebostasis, with a reduction of the sebum secretion rate of 12.5 to 65 %. Concerning their mechanism of action, hormonal antiandrogens are classified in androgen receptor blockers, inhibitors of circulating androgens by affecting the ovarial function (oral contraceptives), inhibitors of circulating androgens by affecting the pituitary (gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonists and dopamin agonists in hyperprolactinemia), inhibitors of the adrenal function, and inhibitors of peripheral androgen metabolism (5-reductase inhibitors, inhibitors of other enzymes).

Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction was used to confirm androgen receptor expression in the human TCC lines 253J and T24. A reporter construct containing an androgen response element was used to establish the integrity of androgen mediated signal transduction. Subsequently the dose dependent effect of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on BCG induced IL-6 expression and NF-kappaB signaling was evaluated. Two pharmacological androgen receptor blockers were used to determine if receptor blockade inhibited the effect of DHT on activation of the androgen response element, NF-kappaB signaling and BCG induced IL-6 expression.

Testosterone treatment resulted in an increased proteinuria as well as profound glomerulosclerosis, tubulointerstitial fibrosis, and mononuclear cell infiltration that paralleled enhanced intragraft mRNA levels of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) and platelet-derived growth factor-A and -B chain (PDGF-A and -B). In contrast, flutamide and finasteride reduced glomerulosclerosis as well as the inflammatory cell infiltration associated with decreased TGF-beta, PDGF-A, and -B chain mRNA expression. No gender-related donor differences were noted between the groups.

We have recently demonstrated that gonadal steroid hormones decrease formalin-induced temporomandibular joint nociception in rats. Given that the attenuation of inflammation is a potential mechanism underlying this antinociceptive effect, we evaluated the effect of gonadal steroid hormones on formalin-induced temporomandibular joint inflammation. Plasma extravasation, a major sign of acute inflammation, and neutrophil migration, an important event related to tissue injury, were evaluated. Formalin induced significantly lower temporomandibular joint plasma extravasation and neutrophil migration in proestrus females than in males and in diestrus females. Since estradiol serum level is high in proestrus females and low in diestrus females and in males, these findings suggest that the high physiological level of estradiol decreases temporomandibular joint inflammation. Estradiol but not progesterone administration in ovariectomized females significantly decreased formalin-induced plasma extravasation and neutrophil migration, an effect that was blocked by the estrogen receptor antagonist ICI 182780. Plasma extravasation and neutrophil migration were not affected by orchiectomy, but testosterone or estradiol administration in orchidectomized males significantly decreased them. The androgen receptor antagonist flutamide blocked the anti-inflammatory effect of testosterone while ICI 182780 blocked that of estradiol in males. Previous intravenous administration of a nonspecific selectin inhibitor significantly decreased formalin-induced temporomandibular joint nociception and neutrophil migration in males, revealing a potent and positive correlation between temporomandibular joint nociception and inflammation. Taken together, these findings demonstrate a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect of estradiol and testosterone in the temporomandibular joint region and suggest that this effect may mediate, at least in part, the antinociceptive effect of these hormones.

Of the 915 men 901 were evaluated at a median followup of 18.5 months. The incidence of hot flashes was 30.1% and 74.3% in the polyestradiol phosphate and complete androgen ablation groups, respectively (p <0.001). In the polyestradiol phosphate group the frequency of and distress due to hot flashes were significantly lower than in the androgen ablation group. There was complete relief from hot flashes in 50% of the men on polyestradiol phosphate during followup compared with none on androgen ablation. The incidence of hot flashes did not differ in men with and without tumor progression.

There was no correlation between an undetectable PSA and a PSA > 0.1 ng/mL and the presence of tumor at the margin when 3 months of AD was given prior to RP. It is possible that longer periods of AD prior to RP will reduce PSA to an undetectable level in a higher percent of patients. However, these data suggest that an undetectable level will not result in less positive margins.

At our institution, a Phase II trial using androgen suppression followed by surgery was completed for men with Stage T3 disease and negative laparoscopic nodal dissection. We recently reported the unfavorable biochemical outcome of that experience. Because that analysis did not include a control group of irradiated patients, the current project was undertaken to compare that Phase II experience with clinical Stage T3 patients treated at our institution with definitive irradiation during an overlapping period of time.

Functional ovarian hyperandrogenism, a variant of polycystic ovary syndrome, is often associated with hyperinsulinism and dyslipidemia. The mechanisms interlinking this triad are poorly understood; both hyperandrogenism and hyperinsulinism have been proposed as factors involved in the pathogenesis of the dyslipidemia. Precocious pubarche (PP) in girls is a risk factor for subsequent anovulation, ovarian and adrenal hyperandrogenism, hyperinsulinism and dyslipidemia. Flutamide, a nonsteroidal antiandrogen, is known to be effective in reducing hirsutism in patients with ovarian hyperandrogenism. However, the effects of flutamide on the endocrine-metabolic correlates of hyperandrogenism are uncertain. We assessed the effects of low dose flutamide treatment (250 mg daily for 18 months) on hormonal and metabolic variables in 18 nonobese adolescent girls (age, 16.8 +/- 0.3 yr) with functional ovarian hyperandrogenism (diagnosis by GnRH agonist test) after PP. Flutamide treatment was accompanied by a marked decrease in the hirsutism score, free androgen index, and testosterone, androstenedione, and dehydroepiandrosterone levels and by an increase in sex hormone-binding globulin concentrations. However, there were no substantial changes in the pattern of menstrual cycles, gonadotropin, estradiol, or dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate concentrations, and there was no detectable effect on the 17-hydroxyprogesterone response to GnRH agonist. Serum triglycerides, total cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels decreased markedly during flutamide therapy, whereas high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, fasting glycemia/insulinemia, and the insulin response to a glucose load remained unchanged. Flutamide was well tolerated. In conclusion, low dose flutamide treatment was found to be an effective and safe approach to reduce hirsutism and circulating androgen, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in girls with functional ovarian hyperandrogenism after PP. However, flutamide failed to increase high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels or decrease hyperinsulinemia, i.e. to affect two major risk factors for subsequent cardiovascular disease.

The effects of a prolonged subcutaneous administration of SCH 13521 dissolved in 0.3% hydroxypropyl cellulose (2-8 weeks in daily doses of 0.2 or 1.0 mg amounting to an estimated equivalent of experimental and curative doses used by others in laboratory animals and men) were studied in males of the mouse inbred strain C57BL/6. Following the treatment, the activity of spermatogenesis (expressed as the mean number of seminiferous tubules containing mature sperm and epididymal sperm count) was inhibited while the testis weight was not reduced, obviously due to an absolute increase of the interstitial tissue which was a marked histological feature of the testes, particularly following the higher doses of SCH 13521. Lower doses and shorter-lasting administration of the compound seem to inhibit the activity more effectively because after a prolonged administration reparatory processes tend to be triggered via a stimulatory effect on the synthesis of testosterone in Leydig cells. The solvent alone, hydroxypropyl cellulose, had some inhibitory effect on spermatogenesis. The lymphoid system remained both morphologically and functionally unaffected by SCH 13521 unlike the steroidal antiandrogen cyproterone actetate.

Testosterone controls the melanogenic activity of epidermal melanocytes, but not that of brown dermal pigment cells, in scrotal skin of the adult rat. The effect of prenatal treatment with the antiandrogen flutamide on the development of scrotal skin pigmentation and the male reproductive system was examined. Treatment with flutamide on days 14-20 of gestation resulted in hypospadias, the absence or only rudimentary growth of prostate and seminal vesicles, and the presence of a vagina in male offspring. The scrotal coloration of these animals was lighter than controls, an effect due to the complete absence of dermal pigment cells. There was no effect of prenatal treatment with flutamide on melanin content, morphology, and relative number of epidermal melanocytes. Thus, the administration of antiandrogen during the fetal period of androgen-induced differentiation of secondary genital organs of the male rat prevents development of the androgen-independent dermal pigment cells. It would appear, therefore, that there is a transitory period during development when the dermal pigment cells or other elements in the scrotal dermal environment which regulate their function are under androgen control.

Alopecia is a common yet underreported adverse event of endocrine-based cancer therapies. Their long-term use heightens the importance of this condition on patients' quality of life. These findings are critical for pretherapy counseling, the identification of risk factors, and the development of interventions that could enhance adherence and mitigate this psychosocially difficult event.

We prepared models of castrated male rabbits. Pathological sections of aorta were performed hematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining and Masson's trichrome staining. Total plasma testosterone was measured using ADVIA Centaur Immunoassay System (Bayer, Germany). Serum TNF alpha and IL 6 were assayed using radio-immunoassay kit and serum sICAM-1 and MMP 2 were measured using ELISA kit. Our results showed that castration significantly lowered plasma testosterone levels, whereas testosterone replacement at a dose of 6 mg/kg/two-week restored circulating testosterone to physiological levels, without being altered by treatment with flutamide (a testosterone receptor inhibitor). Testosterone undecanoate replacement reduced the plaque area and the aortic intimal thickness, whereas the fibrous cap thickness and collagen contents increased in castrated rabbits. However, the presence of flutamide increased the plaque area and the aortic intimal thickness, whereas the fibrous cap thickness and collagen contents decreased in castrated rabbits again. Moreover, the levels of serum TNF alpha, IL 6, sICAM and MMP 2 increased in cholesterol-rich diet rabbits as compared with standard diet rabbits. Castration caused increases in the levels of serum TNF alpha, IL6, sICAM and MMP 2 in castrated rabbits as compared with sham-operated rabbits. Treatment of testosterone undecanoate reduced the levels of serum TNF alpha, IL 6, sICAM and MMP 2 in castrated rabbits, while the presence of flutamide increased the levels of serum TNF alpha, IL 6, sICAM and MMP 2 again.

Both the groups of patients under Flu therapy showed a marked decrease in hirsutism scores after 12 months compared with basal values. The maximum drug effect was observed after 2 years, and it was maintained during the following years of treatment. Androgens were strongly suppressed during treatment. During the first year of treatment, 6.0% of patients abandoned the study due to hepatic disorders related to the drug. During the following years with the lowest treatment regimen, none of the patients abandoned the study due to hepatic discomfort.

JNJ-10229570 dose dependently inhibited the production of sebaceous lipids in cultured primary human sebocytes. Topical treatment with JNJ-10229570 of human skins transplanted onto SCID mice resulted in a marked decrease in sebum-specific lipid production, sebaceous gland's size and the expression of the sebaceous differentiation marker epithelial-membrane antigen (EMA). Treatment with flutamide, a known inhibitor of sebum production, gave similar results, validating the human skin/SCID mouse experimental system for sebaceous secretion studies.

Previous studies indicate that after severe hemorrhage, immune functions are markedly depressed in males, whereas females do not show any depression. Although androgen depletion by castration of mice before soft-tissue trauma and hemorrhagic shock prevents the depression of cell-mediated immunity, it remains unknown whether testosterone per se is responsible for producing immune depression.

1. Myotubes cultured from adult male Xenopus laevis laryngeal muscle have been found to express androgen receptors. 2. Using patch-clamp techniques, it was found that 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (5 alpha-DHT) can act directly at membranes of these myotubes to alter the kinetic properties of acetylcholine- (ACh) activated single channels. 3. When the culture medium contains 5 alpha-DHT for greater than 6 days, the androgen acts through its receptors to markedly increase ACh-activated, single-channel conductances and alter single-channel kinetics. These effects do not occur if the antiandrogen, flutamide, which prevents the androgen from combining with its receptor, is added to the medium before the addition of the 5 alpha-DHT. These effects also do not occur in myotubes cultured from quadriceps femoris muscles that have much lower levels of specific androgen receptor buy eulexin . 4. When alpha-bungarotoxin (alpha-BTX) is added to the medium for 3 h before recording, no ACh channels can be recorded from myotubes in control medium within 5 h after washout of the alpha-BTX. However, when the culture medium contains 5 alpha-DHT for greater than or equal to 6 days, ACh channels can be recorded within 8 min of the washout of the alpha-BTX. 5. The results suggest that 5 alpha-DHT may act to alter the properties of ACh-activated ion channels at multiple sites in excitable cells.

In most vertebrate species, the production of vasotocin (VT; non-mammals) and vasopressin (VP; mammals) in the medial bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BSTm) waxes and wanes with seasonal reproductive state; however, opportunistically breeding species might need to maintain high levels of this behaviorally relevant neuropeptide year-round in anticipation of unpredictable breeding opportunities. We here provide support for this hypothesis and demonstrate that buy eulexin these neurons are instead regulated 'cryptically' via hormonal regulation of their activity levels, which may be rapidly modified to adjust VT signaling. First, we show that combined treatment of male and female zebra finches (Estrildidae: Taeniopygia guttata) with the androgen receptor antagonist flutamide and the aromatase inhibitor 1,4,6-androstatriene-3,17-dione does not alter the expression of VT immunoreactivity within the BSTm; however, both hormonal treatment and social housing environment (same-sex versus mixed-sex) alter VT colocalization with the immediate early gene product Fos (a proxy marker of neural activation) in the BSTm. In a second experiment, manipulations of estradiol (E2) levels with the aromatase inhibitor letrozole (LET) or subcutaneous E2 implants failed to alter colocalization, suggesting that the colocalization effects in experiment 1 were solely androgenic. LET treatment also did not affect VT immunoreactivity in a manner reversible by E2 treatment. Finally, comparisons of VT immunoreactivity in breeding and nonbreeding individuals of several estrildid species demonstrate that year-round stability of VT immunoreactivity is found only in highly opportunistic species, and is therefore not essential to the maintenance of long-term pair bonds, which are ubiquitous in the Estrildidae.

Administration of testosterone for 6 days to intact female and castrate male BALB/cJ mice stimulated hepatic microsomal ethylmorphine N-demethylase activity and cytochrome P-450 content by 50-75%. Testosterone also stimulated hepatic microsomal NADPH-oxidase activity, but to a lesser degree. To probe the mechanism of this effect of androgens, two antiandrogens (cyproterone acetate and flutamide) were employed. Since cyproterone acetate was a potent stimulator of hepatic microsomal ethylmorphine N-demethylase activity and cytochrome P-450 content, no antiandrogenic activity of this steroid could be detected. By contrast, flutamide alone had little effect on either ethylmorphine N-demethylase activity or cytochrome buy eulexin P-450 content. However, this drug effectively blocked the stimulatory effects of testosterone on ethylmorphine N-demethylase activity and cytochrome P-450 content but not on NADPH-oxidase activity. This effect was not species specific, since flutamide also prevented androgen stimulation of ethylmorphine metabolism in adult castrate and prepubertal male Fisher rats. The testosterone-induced increase of hepatic weight and microsomal protein content was not affected by the administration of flutamide. The observations are consistent with the hypothesis that androgens have two distinct effects on the liver. First, testosterone may act as a general, nonspecific stimulant of liver weight and microsomal protein content which is independent of the androgen receptor. Secondly, testosterone action in the liver may be expressed via an androgen-specific or androgen receptor-dependent mechanism which controls, in part, the cytochrome P-450-dependent demethylase system.

Among cocaine users, men experience more adverse buy eulexin brain and vascular effects than their female counterparts. This could be caused by testosterone, which may potentiate some of cocaine's effects. We examined whether antiandrogen (flutamide, FL) pretreatment alters cocaine's acute behavioral, physiologic, and pharmacokinetic effects in men with histories of occasional cocaine use. Participants (N = 8) were pretreated with oral FL (250 mg) and placebo on separate study days followed by intravenous (IV) cocaine (0.4 mg/kg). Vital signs, subjective ratings, and blood samples for cocaine and metabolites were obtained at baseline and for 90 minutes after cocaine administration. FL, itself, had no effects on physiologic or subjective responses; however, after cocaine, heart rate recovered faster with FL pretreatment. Flutamide reduced peak plasma cocaine levels (Wilcoxon signed-rank z = 2.1, P < 0.04) and area under the curve (AUC; z = 1.96, P < 0.05). Additionally, FL reduced EME levels (z = 1.96, P < 0.05) and AUC for BE and EME (z = 2.38, P < 0.02 and z = 1.96, P < 0.05, respectively). These results suggest that FL may alter cocaine pharmacokinetics in men. Because cocaine and BE are vasoconstrictive, the data imply that FL might reduce some of cocaine's cardiovascular effects.

Unilaterally cryptorchid rats were obtained buy eulexin by daily administration of 7.5 mg flutamide (Nihonkayaku, Tokyo, Japan), an androgen receptor antagonist, to pregnant rats. At age 10 weeks the unilaterally cryptorchid rats underwent orchiopexy with or without EGF administered into the cryptorchid testis. EGF solution (10 microg/ml) was delivered into the seminiferous tubules by retrograde perfusion through the rete testis. At 14 days testicular recovery was assessed based on the maturity of spermatogenesis using a modified Johnsen score and from the number of apoptotic germ cells per seminiferous tubule.

The recent discovery of time-specific antiandrogens (flutamide) to induce undescent of the testes has provided us the ability to study androgen therapy for cryptorchidism in the first specific antiandrogen animal model for testicular descent. Postpartal administration of pharmacological doses of testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, or human chorionic gonadotropin failed to buy eulexin reverse antiandrogen-induced cryptorchidism. Reduction in the frequency of testicular undescent occurred only when these agents were administered before parturition. Indeed, statistically significant reductions in the incidence of undescended testes occurred only when androgens were administered simultaneously with the antiandrogens on gestational days 16-17. However, the successful ability of prenatal dihydrotestosterone or testosterone to prevent cryptorchidism was associated with significant complications of prenatal androgen therapy. Specifically, 100% (46 of 46) of the animals that had inhibition of flutamide-induced cryptorchidism manifested findings of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. The findings of descended diminutive testes and epididymis in these latter animals did, however, substantiate that testicular weight does not play a significant role in descent of this organ. In summary, these studies delineate a narrow window of time in which androgens act to effect testicular descent that is independent of testicular size.

It is known that androst-5-ene-3beta,17beta-diol (Adiol), a precursor of testosterone (T), buy eulexin can activate estrogen target genes. The androgenic activity of Adiol itself, however, is poorly understood. Using a transient transfection assay, we here demonstrate in human prostate cancer cells that Adiol can activate androgen receptor (AR) target genes in the presence of AR, and that AR coactivator ARA70 can further enhance this Adiol-induced AR transcriptional activity. In contrast to this finding, an active metabolite of dehydroepiandrosterone, 7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone, does not activate AR target gene in the absence or presence of ARA70. Thin layer chromatography analysis reveals that T, dihydrotestosterone, and 17beta-estradiol are undetectable in human prostate cancer DU145 cells after treatment with Adiol. Additionally, a proteolysis assay shows that a distinct ligand-receptor conformational difference exists between T-AR and Adiol-AR. Together, the above findings and the fact that T, but not Adiol, can induce transcriptional activity in a mutant AR (mtAR708), suggest that, without being metabolized into T, Adiol itself may represent a natural hormone with androgenic activity in human prostate cancer cells. Because two potent antiandrogens, hydroxyflutamide (Eulexin), and bicalutamide (casodex), that are widely used for the treatment of prostate cancer, fail to block Adiol-mediated induction of AR transcriptional activity in prostate cancer cells, the effectiveness of so-called "total androgen blockage," a standard treatment for prostate cancer, may need to be reevaluated.

Most prostate cancers (PCs) become resistant to combined androgen blockade therapy with surgical or medical castration and antiandrogens after several years. Some of these refractory PCs regress after discontinuation of antiandrogen administration [antiandrogen withdrawal syndrome (AWS)]. Although the molecular mechanisms of the AWS are not fully understood because of the lack of suitable experimental models, one hypothesis of the mechanism is mutation of androgen receptor (AR). However, bicalutamide, which has become buy eulexin the most prevalent pure antiandrogen, does not work as an agonist for any mutant AR detected thus far in PC. To elucidate the mechanisms of the AWS, we established and characterized novel LNCaP cell sublines, LNCaP-cxDs, which were generated in vitro by culturing androgen-dependent LNCaP-FGC human PC cells in androgen-depleted medium with bicalutamide to mimic the combined androgen blockade therapy. LNCaP-FGC cells did not grow at first, but they started to grow after 6-13 weeks of culture. Bicalutamide stimulated LNCaP-cxD cell growth and increased prostate-specific antigen secretion from LNCaP-cxD cells both in vitro and in vivo. Sequencing of AR transcripts revealed that the AR in LNCaP-cxD cells harbors a novel mutation in codon 741, TGG (tryptophan) to TGT (cysteine; W741C), or in codon 741, TGG to TTG (leucine; W741L), in the ligand-binding domain. Transactivation assays showed that bicalutamide worked as an agonist for both W741C and W741L mutant ARs. Importantly, another antiandrogen, hydroxyflutamide, worked as an antagonist for these mutant ARs. In summary, we demonstrate for the first time that within only 6-13 weeks of in vitro exposure to bicalutamide, LNCaP-FGC cells, whose growth had initially been suppressed, came to use bicalutamide as an AR agonist via W741 AR mutation to survive. Our data strongly support the hypothesis that AR mutation is one possible mechanism of the AWS and suggest that flutamide might be effective as a second-line therapy for refractory PC previously treated with bicalutamide.

In this study we evaluated the effect of manipulating the estrogen and androgen environment of the neonatal male rat on subsequent immunoexpression of sex steroid receptors in the seminal vesicles (SVs) at age 18 days. The aim was to establish to what extent such changes were associated with and predictive of changes in SV structure/composition. Treatments were either diethylstilbestrol (DES; 10, 1, or 0.1 microg/injection), ethinyl estradiol (EE; 10 microg/injection), tamoxifen (2 mg/kg/day), flutamide (50 mg/kg), a gonadotropin-releasing buy eulexin hormone antagonist (GnRHa; 10 mg/kg), genistein (4 mg/kg/day), octylphenol (2 mg/injection), or bisphenol A (0.5 mg/injection). Compared with controls, treatment with DES (10 microg) induced loss of epithelial and stromal androgen receptor (AR) immunoexpression coincident with induction of stromal progesterone receptor (PR) immunoexpression and upregulation of stromal immunoexpression of estrogen receptor-alpha (ERalpha). These changes were associated with gross distortion (increase) of the normal stromal:epithelial tissue proportions in the SVs. DES (1 microg) and EE induced similar but less pronounced changes, and DES (0.1 microg) had no noticeable effect. Tamoxifen and flutamide induced PR and slightly upregulated ERalpha immunoexpression but had only a minor or no effect on AR expression and the stromal:epithelial ratio, though flutamide retarded normal development of the SVs. The latter was also evident in GnRHa-treated males, but otherwise this treatment had no effect on AR and PR immunoexpression. None of the foregoing treatments had any detectable effect on the immunoexpression of ERss in stromal or epithelial cells. The major treatment-induced changes in immunoexpression of AR, PR, and ERalpha and lack of change in ERss were confirmed by Western blots of SV protein extracts. None of the three weak (environmental) estrogens tested caused any detectable change in sex steroid receptor immunoexpression or SV tissue composition. We conclude that treatment-induced loss of AR is a prerequisite for altered stromal:epithelial proportions in the SVs and that such loss is always associated with induction of PR and upregulation of ERalpha; the latter two changes are insufficient on their own to bring about such a change. Nevertheless, induction of PR expression was always associated with altered SV development and is a potentially useful marker because it is not normally expressed in male reproductive tissues.

In order to assess the androgenic activity of synthetic "progestins" currently used as "antiandrogens" for the treatment of prostate cancer in men, the effect of a series of these compounds has been measured following 14 days of treatment of adult castrated rats on specific and sensitive parameters of androgenic activity, namely ventral prostate weight and prostatic ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity. Medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) is almost equipotent with 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a 49% increase in prostatic weight being observed at the low dose of 0.15 mg, twice daily (P less than 0.01). Megestrol acetate (Megace), chlormadinone acetate (CMA) and spironolactone were less potent but caused a 36-59% increase in prostatic weight at the highest dose used, namely 10 mg. At the 5 mg dose, cyproterone acetate (CPA) caused a 75% increase in prostatic weight. The androgenic activity of the compounds buy eulexin is even more clearly illustrated by their marked stimulatory effect on prostatic ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity. MPA, at the low dose of 0.15 mg, caused a 20-fold increase (relative to the effect of placebo) in the activity of the enzyme while the same dose of DHT caused a 15-fold stimulation of enzymatic activity. At the 10 mg dose, megestrol acetate, CMA and spironolactone caused 13.1, 11.8 and 8.6-fold stimulations of ODC activity, respectively. Flutamide, on the other hand, had no stimulatory effect on either ventral prostate weight or prostatic ODC activity. In agreement with glucocorticoid activity, MPA, megestrol acetate and CMA caused a marked inhibition (45-64%) of adrenal weight. The present data show that MPA is a highly potent androgen while megestrol acetate, CMA, CPA and spironolactone have lower but significant androgenic activity on all the parameters measured. It should be added that MPA, megestrol acetate and CMA are completely devoid of antiandrogenic activity while spironolactone shows weak antiandrogen action and CPA is a mixed agonist-antagonist. Flutamide, the compound used as reference, is the only compound devoid of any androgenic action and is thus acting as a pure antiandrogen on both ventral prostate weight and prostatic ODC activity. The present data have major implications for the choice of drug to be used for the treatment of androgen-sensitive diseases, especially prostate cancer. As shown by the present data, the synthetic "progestins" so-far available all possess variable levels of androgenic activity and are thus not recommended for the treatment of prostate cancer.

Androgen receptors were identified and characterized in the cytosol and nuclear fractions of the perinatal female rat brain. Cytosol receptors have sedimentation coefficients in the range of 8 to 10S and bind to DNA cellulose columns. These receptors are detected in low concentrations in hypothalamus-preoptic area-amygdala-septum (HPAS) during the last few days of fetal life, less than 1/10th of levels found in adult HPAS. They undergo the most dramatic increase in concentration between postnatal days 7 and 15. Their appearance thus coincides temporally with the appearance of estrogen and progestin receptors, but the time course of their development is delayed, by comparison. Cell nuclear androgen receptors were also identified by gel exclusion chromatography and protamine sulfate precipitation after salt extraction of neonatal brain cell nuclei following in vivo labeling with both a synthetic and a natural androgen. Two well-known anti-androgens, cyproterone acetate and flutamide, are shown to inhibit the Depakote Highest Dosage in vivo androgen binding to these cell nuclear receptors. The results are discussed in relation to androgen action in the perinatal rat brain, and the information currently available suggests that androgens influence both gonadotropin secretion and aspects of brain sexual differentiaton.

The long-term effects and tolerability of flutamide (Flu) on the menstrual cycle and the ovulatory function of hyperandrogenic women with or without polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) were investigated. The study included 118 white women with the diagnosis of various forms of hyperandrogenism (80 PCOS and 38 non-PCOS patients). Patients received Flu for three years at dosages that declined each of the three years (250, 125 and 62.5 mg/day). Sex steroid, ovulatory function and menstrual profile at baseline and during each year of Flu treatment were evaluated. Flu therapy showed a significant increase in the percentage of Rivastigmine Exelon Drugs cycles that were ovulatory (with progesterone concentrations greater than 4 ng/ml in mid-luteal phase) and concomitant regularization of the menstrual profile in PCOS patients. A luteinizing hormone decrease and an estrone, estradiol and 17-hydroxyprogesterone increase are also observed during treatment. Regular cycles persisted in non-PCOS patients. The results were maintained during the three years of treatment. The study suggests that Flu is a satisfactory therapeutic regimen of the chronic anovulation and the irregularities of the menstrual cycle in hyperandrogenic PCOS patients in the long run.

Although median follow-up is short, triple androgen blockade therapy followed by finasteride maintenance Topamax Highest Dose appears to be a promising alternative for the management of patients with clinically localized or locally advanced prostate cancer. Further study of this approach is warranted.
