Action of Abiraterone 250 mg
Abiraterone (its active substance is Abiraterone 250mg) is the drug of the latest generation, intended for the treatment of prostate cancer. Abiraterone suppresses the activity of enzyme called CYP17. In its turn, CYP17 participates in the biosynthesis of androgens affecting the growth of tumor. A large amount of CYP17 is contained in the tissues of testicles, adrenal glands and prostate cancer cells.
Abiraterone reduces the level of androgens, thereby stopping the progression of disease.
During clinical trials and subsequent use of the drug, it was revealed that Abiraterone 250 mg maintains the patient’s life quality at a decent level, inhibits the growth of tumor, relieves pain and helps to improve the general condition and extend the patient’s life. It was established that the general survival rate of patients using Abiraterone, is much higher than in those who didn’t receive the treatment with this drug.

Abiraterone belongs to the group of medications called androgen antagonists (testosterone blockers). Testosterone prevents prostate cancer from growing and replication. The drug acts by impeding the release of testosterone, thus delaying the growth of prostate cancer. Abiraterone must not be used by women or kids.
