17-(3-pyridyl)-5,16-androstadien-3beta-acetate Chemical Properties
Abiraterone acetate is a novel steroidal inhibitor of human Cytochrome P450 (17α-Hydroxylase-C17,20-lyase): potential agent for the treatment of prostatic cancer.
A steroidal inhibitor of CYP17A1 in androgen biosynthesis
A novel steroidal inhibitor of human Cytochrome P450(17a-Hydroxylase-C17,20-lyase): potential agent for the treatment of prostatic cancer.
Abiraterone acetate is a type of hormone therapy. This medication is classified as an "adrenal inhibitor".
What this drug is used for:
Abiraterone acetate is indicated for use in combination with prednisone for the treatment of men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who have already received prior chemotherapy containing docetaxel.
How this drug is given:
Abiraterone acetate is a pill, taken by mouth. It is taken once a day.
It must be taken on an empty stomach [2 hours after a meal, or one hour before]
It should be taken at approximately the same time each day.
Prednisone [10mg daily] should be taken along with abiraterone acetate.
The amount of abiraterone acetate you receive depends on many factors. Your doctor will determine your dose and schedule
How abiraterone acetate works:
Hormones are chemical substances that are produced by glands in the body, which enter the bloodstream and cause effects in other tissues. The use of hormone therapy to treat cancer is based on the observation that receptors for specific hormones that are needed for cell growth are on the surface of some tumor cells. Hormone therapy can work by stopping the production of a certain hormone, blocking hormone receptors or substituting chemically similar agents for the active hormone, which cannot be used by the tumor cell. Different types of hormone therapies are categorized by their function and/or the type of hormone that is affected.
The growth of prostate cancer is stimulated by male hormones (androgens / testosterone). Decreasing the production of these hormones is critical in helping men fight prostate cancer. Androgens are primarily made by the testicles and adrenal glands. However, in men with advanced prostate cancer, the metastatic tumors themselves have the capability to produce testosterone. Generally, prostate cancer responds to treatment that decreases androgen levels. Many androgen deprivation therapies, decrease androgen production by the testicles but do not affect androgen production elsewhere in the body, such as the adrenal glands or in the tumor.
Abiraterone acetate works in a different manner than other androgen deprivation therapies. Abiraterone acetate interferes with an enzyme that is expressed in testicular, adrenal, and prostatic tumor tissues and is required as part of the body's androgen producing process. Because of this interference the amount of androgens produced are decreased. Abiraterone acetate, blocks androgen production at three sources; the testes, the adrenal glands, as well as from the tumor itself.
