To facilitate the rational design of novel and more potent androgen receptor ligands, three-dimensional models for the human androgen receptor ligand binding domain bound to testosterone have been developed. These models of the androgen receptor were based on the crystal structure of the highly homologous human progesterone receptor ligand binding domain. The homology modeled androgen receptor was refined using unrestrained multiple molecular dynamics simulations in explicit solvent. Key H-bonding partners with the 17-hydroxy group and 3-keto group of testosterone are Asn705 and Thr877, and Gln711 and Arg752, respectively. These models show the presence of a unique unoccupied cavity within the androgen receptor binding pocket which may be valuable in the development of novel selective androgen receptor ligands. A qualitative analysis of amino acid mutations within the hAR binding pocket that affect ligand binding are consistent with these androgen receptor models. In addition to testosterone, the binding modes of several hydroxyflutamide-like nonsteroidal ligands for the androgen receptor are investigated using flexible docking with FlexX followed by refinement of the initial complexes with molecular dynamics simulations. These docking studies indicate that Asn705 is an important determinant in binding hydroxyflutamide and its derivatives by participating in H-bond interactions with the alpha-hydroxy moiety of these ligands. In addition, the nitro functionality mimics the 3-keto group of the natural ligand testosterone and is involved in H-bonding interactions with Gln711 and Arg752. From these docking studies, we suggest a mechanism for the enantioselective binding of chiral hydroxyflutamide derivatives and expand upon the previously reported structure-activity relationship for hydroxyflutamide and its derivatives.

For patients with stage D2 prostate cancer and disease progression or an increasing PSA concentration, withdrawal of antiandrogen therapy with bicalutamide or flutamide may result in a PSA response. The time to PSA response is longer with bicalutamide than with flutamide. The clinical significance of the antiandrogen withdrawal phenomenon is unknown.

The influence of testosterone (T) on progesterone (P) production by isolated rat ovarian granulosa cells was studied in vitro using a new replicate culture technique. Preantral granulosa cells from ovaries of estrogen-primed hypophysectomized immature female rats were cultured in the presence of graded concentrations of T, diethylstilbestrol (DES), cyproterone acetate (CPA), flutamide and the hydroxylated derivative of flutamide, Sch 16423. The accumulation of P in medium collected from granulosa cell cultures was measured by specific radioimmunoassay. Maximal P production by cultured granulosa cells was attained during the second day of culture and declined markedly thereafter. The presence of 10(-9), 10(-8) or 10(-7)M T elicited increases in P production 2.4, 8 and 11 times that of controls, respectively, during the initial 48 h of culture. Each concentration of T elicited enhanced P production within the first 24 h of culture. Granulosa cells cultured in control medium for 2 days did not respond to 10(-7)M T during the subsequent 3 days. DES at a high concentration in the medium (10(-5)M) markedly suppressed the response to 10(-9) and 10(-8)M T. At a lower concentration (10(-9)M) DES significantly enhanced the stimulatory effect of 10(-9)M T but did not alter the response to higher concentrations of T. Neither high nor low concentrations of DES influenced P production in response to 10(-7) M T. The stimulatory effects of T on P production were suppressed in the presence of a 100-fold molar excess of the anti-androgens, CPA or Sch 16423. The present data indicate that androgenic stimulation of P production by preantral granulosa cells is a specific receptor mediated event which is modulated by the presence of estrogen in vitro. It is suggested that androgen-responsive P production is a functional capacity which granulosa cells acquire at a very early stage of hormonal differentiation and may be of physiological consequence in the intraovarian control of follicular maturation in vivo.

We report a 58 years old male, presenting with malaise, weight loss and jaundice. An abdominal ultrasound showed multiple lymphadenopathies in the hepatic bilus and around the pancreas. Fine needle aspiration of these nodes demonstrated an undifferentiated carcinoma. Prostate specific antigen was over 100 ng/ml and a prostate biopsy demonstrated a high grade carcinoma. The patient was subjected to an orchiectomy and hormone therapy (flutamide). Jaundice subsided and he is well after 3 years of follow up and maintained hormone therapy.

Hormonal changes induced by the pure antiandrogen flutamide were studied in three postmenopausal metastatic breast cancer patients. The drug was administered at a dose of 250 mg, three times a day for 3-6 months. In each patient a sharp decrease of about 50% was observed in the circulating levels of DHT and DHEAS, irrespective of pretreatment values. A concomitant, although less pronounced, reduction in circulating testosterone, androstenedione and estradiol was found. A decrease in circulating steroids was associated with a 30% decrease in SHBG concentrations in two patients; in the third patient a 30% increase occurred. Androgens in urine, namely testosterone, androstanediol and 17-KS, decreased accordingly. In addition, a marked decrease in 17-OHCS occurred in two of the patients. These data indicate that flutamide is an effective antiandrogen in women and suggest two possible mechanisms by which the drug exerts its antiandrogenic activity: (a) inhibition of conversion of testosterone into the more active DHT, and (b) inhibition of synthesis of the adrenal precursors of active androgens. Minor variations in circulating LH and FSH were observed. Pretreatment prolactin values, which were higher than normal, dramatically decreased by 90% in one patient who had a partial remission of her disease, and they further increased in another patient who relapsed while on therapy.

DHT, but not testosterone (0.03-300 nM), elicited concentration-dependent elevations of [Ca(2+) ]i within 1 min of addition. These responses were blocked by the androgen receptor antagonist, flutamide (10 μM); the sarcoplasmic reticulum ATPase pump inhibitor, thapsigargin (1 μM); the inositol trisphosphate receptor inhibitor, 2-aminoethyldiphenyl borate (50 μM) and the PLC inhibitor, U-73122 (1 μM). Responses were also blocked by the L-type calcium channel blocker, nifedipine (1 μM), and by removal of extracellular calcium. A similar transient elevation of [Ca(2+) ]i was elicited by EGF (100 ng·mL(-1) ). The EGF receptor inhibitor, AG 1478 (30 nM), and the MMP inhibitor, marimastat (100 nM), blocked the DHT-induced elevation of [Ca(2+) ]i .

We investigated the effects of GnRH analogs, different doses of testosterone (T), an androgen receptor antagonist (flutamide), and combinations of these on the recovery of spermatogenesis after irradiation. Treatment with a GnRH agonist (Lupron) for 10 weeks after irradiation reduced the intratesticular T concentration (ITT) to 4% of that in irradiated rats and serum FSH to undetectable levels without altering serum LH levels. Injection of a GnRH antagonist (Cetrorelix) at 3 weeks after irradiation suppressed LH, FSH, and ITT to <7%, 32%, and 10%, respectively, of levels in irradiated-only rats within 2 weeks; suppression was maintained for approximately 3 to 4 weeks. The percentage of tubules with differentiated germ cells (repopulation index, RI) was <0.6% at weeks 10 to 20 after irradiation. Spermatogenic recovery was induced by both the GnRH agonist (RI = 58% at week 10; 91% at week 20) and antagonist (RI = 70% at week 13). There was a dose-dependent suppression of testicular germ cell repopulation when T was combined with GnRH analogs. The ability of T to abolish the spermatogenic stimulatory effect of the GnRH antagonist was evident by the similar RI obtained for irradiated rats given antagonist + T or T alone. This suppression of GnRH-induced recovery of spermatogenesis by T could be reversed by flutamide. The RI best correlated with the degree of ITT suppression. In ITT-suppressed rats, the RI also showed an inverse correlation with serum T levels. Thus, T and/or its androgenic metabolites either directly or indirectly inhibit spermatogenic recovery after irradiation through an androgen receptor-mediated process. In addition, there was a close negative correlation between RI and FSH levels, and hence, a spermatogenic inhibitory role for FSH in the irradiated rats cannot be ruled out.

The 16HBE-14o cells were stimulated with 5 ng/ml TGF-β1 for 3 days to induce EMT, with or without DHEA pretreatment, and assayed for epithelial or mesenchymal markers using Western Blot. The involvement of phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) -mediated signaling pathway was also evaluated, the epithelial cells were also incubated with pharmacological approaches (agonists and antagonists of Akt, LY294002 or IGF-1) or flutamide, the antagonist of androgen receptor. Results were analyzed using nonparametric statistical tests.

Estrogen is an active neuroprotectant and is presently investigated as a potential therapy against Alzheimer's disease for women. To determine if male hormones could also be neuroprotective, we investigated the effect of testosterone, methyltestosterone, and epitestosterone at physiological concentrations on primary cultures of human neurons induced to undergo apoptosis by serum deprivation. Serum deprivation significantly induces neuronal apoptosis in a protracted fashion. As expected, physiological concentrations of 17-beta-estradiol and transcriptionally inactive 17-alpha-estradiol protect neurons against apoptosis. Similar to 17-beta-estradiol, physiological concentrations of testosterone are also neuroprotective. Androgen receptors are present at 8 +/- 2 fmol/mg protein in the neuron cultures. The non-aromatizable androgen, mibolerone, is also neuroprotective and aromatase inhibitor, 4-androsten-4-OL-3,17-dione, does not prevent testosterone-mediated neuroprotection. In contrast, anti-androgen, flutamide, eliminates testosterone-mediated neuroprotection. Testosterone analog, methyltestosterone, showed androgen receptor-dependent neuroprotection that was delayed in time indicating that a metabolite may be the active agent. The endogenous anti-androgen, epitestosterone, also showed a slight neuroprotective effect but not through the androgen receptor. These results indicate that androgens induce neuroprotection directly through the androgen receptor. These data suggest that androgens may also be of therapeutic value against Alzheimer's disease in aging males.

Phenacetin was withdrawn from the market because it caused renal failure in some patients. Many reports indicated that the nephrotoxicity of phenacetin is associated with the hydrolyzed metabolite, p-phenetidine. Acetaminophen (APAP), the major metabolite of phenacetin, is also hydrolyzed to p-aminophenol, which is a nephrotoxicant. However, APAP is safely prescribed if used in normal therapeutic doses. This background prompted us to investigate the difference between phenacetin and APAP hydrolase activities in human liver. In this study, we found that phenacetin is efficiently hydrolyzed in human liver microsomes (HLM) [CL(int) 1.08 +/- 0.02 microl/(min . mg)], whereas APAP is hardly hydrolyzed [0.02 +/- 0.00 microl/(min . mg)]. To identify the esterase involved in their hydrolysis, the activities were measured using recombinant human carboxylesterase (CES) 1A1, CES2, and arylacetamide deacetylase (AADAC). Among these, AADAC showed a K(m) value (1.82 +/- 0.02 mM) similar to that of HLM (3.30 +/- 0.16 mM) and the highest activity [V(max) 6.03 +/- 0.14 nmol/(min . mg)]. In contrast, APAP was poorly hydrolyzed by the three esterases. The large contribution of AADAC to phenacetin hydrolysis was demonstrated by the prediction with a relative activity factor. In addition, the phenacetin hydrolase activity by AADAC was activated by flutamide (5-fold) as well as that in HLM (4-fold), and the activity in HLM was potently inhibited by eserine, a strong inhibitor of AADAC. In conclusion, we found that AADAC is the principal enzyme responsible for the phenacetin hydrolysis, and the difference of hydrolase activity between phenacetin and APAP is largely due to the substrate specificity of AADAC.

Twenty men (age range 56-87 years) with advanced prostate cancer were studied. All except one had metastatic disease confirmed by biopsy and/or radiological studies. One patient who had radiological findings suggesting a single hepatic metastasis was found to have focal fatty infiltration on biopsy obtained after FDHT-PET and was excluded from further data analysis. FDHT uptake was assessed semiquantitatively by determination of the standardized uptake value (SUV) and tumor-to-muscle ratio (T/M). Additionally, to assess the AR binding selectivity of FDHT, patients with one or more foci of abnormally increased FDHT accumulation were studied after administration of an AR antagonist (flutamide).

Missense mutations in the androgen receptor (AR) contribute to the failure of hormonal therapy for prostate cancer (PCa), but the underlying molecular bases remain uncharacterized. Here, we describe a new AR variant found in a hormone-refractory metastatic PCa, in which threonine 575 in the DNA binding domain, and threonine 877 in the ligand-binding domain, were both replaced by an alanine. Using gene reporter assays, we demonstrate that the T575A mutation weakened transcriptional activity from promoters containing AR-specific responsive elements, while activity from promoters with AR-non-specific elements was enhanced. Data from gel shift experiments revealed a preferential binding of the T575A mutant to AR-non-specific motifs. We demonstrate that the two mutations T575A and T877A cooperate to confer new functional properties on the AR, and that the mutant AR functions simultaneously as a promiscuous AR due to the T877A mutation, and an unfaithful AR due to the T575A mutation.

The distribution of labeled antiandrogens, estrogens, and androgens has been studied in the rat and dog to elucidate the principles and limitations encountered when these agents are used in radioscanning the prostate. The bulk of the label is rapidly cleared in the biliary secretions and in the urine. The concentration of label in the prostate in comparison to other tissues such as the intestines limits the application of these agents in radioscanning of the prostate. The tissue distributions were confirmed by total body radioscans of rats and dogs receiving a labeled 3'-iodinated analog of the antiandrogen flutamide (Sch 13521 or 3'-trifluoromethyl-4'-nitroisobutyranilide).

Between January 1992 and July 1994, 160 men with prostate cancer underwent radical retropubic prostatectomy (RP) and bilateral pelvic node dissection (PLND). Forty men (mean age 64.2 years) with either a higher clinical stage or a significant increase in serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level (P < 0.001) received induction ADT with a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) analogue alone (six patients), or with an anti-androgen (34 patients), 3-20 months before undergoing RP. The remaining 120 men (mean age 64 years) underwent surgery alone and served as historical controls. Prostatectomy specimens were evaluated using step-sections at 2-3 mm intervals and whole-mount reconstruction. The clinical and pathological results were compared.

Liver disorders were the most common adverse reactions associated with flutamide and bicalutamide, but not with cyproterone acetate. 'Hepatitis' and 'cholestatic hepatitis' were the most frequent terms coded. In 38% of the reports related to cyproterone acetate, 18% buy eulexin of those related to flutamide and 33% of those related to bicalutamide the patient had simultaneously received other hepatotoxic drugs. The disproportionality analysis of hepatitis showed a strong association with flutamide and a weak association with bicalutamide and cyproterone acetate. Mean doses of flutamide and bicalutamide were very close to their defined daily dose (DDD) to treat prostate cancer, although in the case of cyproterone acetate it was slightly higher. The latency period of hepatitis was between 3 and 10 months for the three antiandrogens, and the recovery period was shorter (0.5-3 months). The majority of the reported cases of hepatitis evolved favourably.

Three antiandrogens are or will soon be available for clinical use. Only Flutamide has been studied in monotherapy of prostatic cancer patients. The use of Flutamide is associated with significant side effects. However, previously potent patients usually remain potent under Flutamide monotherapy. The mechanism of retained potency is poorly understood. In phase II studies parameters which are usually used for determining response of prostatic cancer to endocrine treatment react favourably to Flutamide monotherapy. Since the long-term elevation of plasma testosterone may have an impact on stimulation of prostatic cancer cells, long-term results of studies are mandatory. Such results, unfortunately, are not available in the literature. The use of "pure" antiandrogens as monotherapy buy eulexin and their long-term effectiveness is therefore uncertain. If effectiveness could be proven, especially in comparison to other standard forms of endocrine treatment, the use of a "pure" antiandrogen, especially of a substance with very few side effects, may provide a better quality of life than standard treatment and may therefore be preferable.

Recently, some studies have found the greatest aromatase activity in brain areas associated with sexual differention and sexual behavior, namely the hypothalamic and limbic structures. We studied the regulation of aromatase activity in the hypothalamic area of male rats, using a sensitive in vitro assay which measures the amount of 3H2O formed by tissue homogenates during the conversion of [1 beta-3H] androstenedione to estrogen. After castration, hypothalamic aromatase activity was significantly decreased (P less than 0.01), and seminal vesicle (SV) and prostate (PR) weights were also significantly decreased (P less than 0.01). Castrated male rats were given testosterone (T), 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT), 5 alpha-androstane-3 alpha, 17 beta-diol (A3 alpha), 5 alpha-androstane-3 beta and 17 buy eulexin beta-diol(A3 beta) in various doses (200-1000 micrograms/day) for 10 days, and were given 600 micrograms/day T, DHT, A3 alpha and A3 beta for various durations (1-10 days). We found that T, DHT and A3 alpha but not A3 beta reversed the effects of castration on the hypothalamic aromatase activity. The order of this reversible effect of androgens was as follows: T greater than or equal to DHT greater than A3 alpha. T, DHT, A3 alpha and A3 beta increased SV and PR weights, and the order of this effect was as follows: DHT greater than T greater than A3 alpha much greater than A3 beta. We administered the antiandrogen (flutamide) to intact male rats (8 mg/day for 6 days). Flutamide decreased hypothalamic aromatase activity at the same level as that of castrated rats. Likewise, administration of both flutamide and T to castrated rats blocked the T-induced increase in hypothalamic aromatase activity and accessory sexual organ weight. From these results, we suggest that T, DHT and A3 alpha regulated hypothalamic aromatase activity, that T was the most effective of the androgens, and that was different from peripheral androgen target organs.

Estrogen receptor-negative (ER-) breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease with limited therapeutic options. The molecular apocrine subtype constitutes 50% of ER-tumors and is characterized by overexpression of steroid response genes including androgen receptor (AR). We have recently identified a positive feedback loop between the AR and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling pathways in the molecular apocrine subtype. buy eulexin In this feedback loop, AR regulates ERK phosphorylation through the mediation of ErbB2 and, in turn, ERK-CREB1 signaling regulates the transcription of AR in molecular apocrine cells. In this study, we investigated the therapeutic implications of the AR-ERK feedback loop in molecular apocrine breast cancer.

There were 38 (44%) men who were 74.5 years old with radiographic evidence of spinal fractures. They had an initial mean prostate specific antigen of 52.8 ng/ml and had received androgen deprivation therapy for a mean of 39.6 months (95% confidence interval 28.7 to 50.4 buy eulexin ). Mean spinal (quantitative computerized tomography t-score -4.2) and femoral neck bone mineral densities (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry t-score -2.1) were significantly lower than in men without spinal fractures (p < 0.001 for all measurements). In the regression analysis the duration of androgen deprivation therapy (p = 0.002), serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels (p = 0.003) and a history of alcohol excess (defined as more than 4 standard drinks daily, p = 0.04) were the main determinants of spinal fractures.

Low levels of p27Kip1 in primary prostate cancer specimens have been shown to be associated with higher rates of disease recurrence and poor rates of disease-free survival in patients with localized disease. In this study, we provide the first direct evidence showing that dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a major proliferation regulator of prostate cancer, can down-regulate p27Kip1 and stimulate cyclin-dependent kinase-2 (CDK2) activity in established prostate cancer cell lines. We investigated the cooperative effects of DHT and epidermal growth factor (EGF) on the proliferation of androgen-responsive MDA PCa 2a and MDA PCa 2b prostate cancer cells. DHT and EGF each stimulated proliferation of these cells, but exposure of the cells to DHT and EGF together stimulated greater proliferation. Stimulation of cell proliferation by DHT and/or EGF was associated with increased CDK2 activity and a decreased level of p27Kip1. There seems to be a positive feedback buy eulexin stimulation loop between androgen-induced gene transcription and EGF-stimulated signal transduction, as one could stimulate the synthesis of the receptors for the other. Dual blockade of androgen receptor function with the antiandrogen hydroxyflutamide and EGF receptor superfamily-mediated signal transduction with the anti-EGF receptor monoclonal antibody C225 and the anti-HER2 receptor monoclonal antibody Herceptin significantly enhanced growth inhibition of the MDA PCa 2a cells. Our results demonstrate the importance of counteracting both androgen receptors and EGF receptors in the development of novel therapies for prostate cancer.

This study was initiated to determine whether the noradrenergic (NE) neurons of the locus coeruleus (LC) could mediate the stimulatory action of androgens on serotonin-related gene expression in male macaques. These experiments follow our observations that serotonin neurons lack androgen receptors (ARs), and yet respond to androgens. Male Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) were castrated for 5-7months and then treated for 3months with [1] placebo, [2] T (testosterone), [3] DHT (dihydrotestosterone; non-aromatizable androgen) plus ATD (steroidal aromatase inhibitor), or [4] FLUT (Flutamide; androgen antagonist) plus ATD (n=5/group). The noradrenergic (NE) innervation of the raphe was determined with immunolabeling of axons with an antibody to dopamine-β-hydroxylase (DBH). Immunolabeling of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) dendrites and corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH) axons innervating the LC was also determined. Due to the longer treatment period employed, the expression of the cognate nuclear receptors was sought. Androgen receptor (AR), estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) and estrogen receptor beta (ERβ) immunostaining was accomplished. Quantitative image analysis was applied and immunopositive neurons or axons with boutons were measured. Double-label of NE neurons for each receptor plus TH determined whether the receptors were localized in NE neurons. Androgens with or without aromatase activity significantly stimulated DBH axon density in the raphe (ANOVA, p=0 Zanaflex 2mg Reviews .006), and LC dendritic TH (ANOVA, p<0.0001), similar to serotonin-related mRNA expression in the raphe. There were significantly more AR-positive neurons in T- and DHT+ATD-treated groups compared to placebo or FLUT+ATD-treated groups (ANOVA, p=0.0014). There was no difference in the number of positive-neurons stained for ERα or ERβ. The CRH axon density in the LC was significantly reduced with aromatase inhibition, suggesting that CRH depends on estrogen, not androgens (ANOVA, p=0.0023). Double-immunohistochemistry revealed that NE neurons did not contain AR. Rather, AR-positive nuclei were found in neighboring cells that are likely neurons. However, >80% of LC NE neurons contained ERα or ERβ. In conclusion, the LC NE neurons may transduce the stimulatory effect of androgens on serotonin-related gene expression. Since LC NE neurons lack AR, the androgenic stimulation of dendritic TH and axonal DBH may be indirectly mediated by other neurons. Estrogen, either from metabolism of T or from de novo synthesis, appears necessary for robust CRH innervation of the LC, which differs from female macaques.

In our continuing study of curcumin analogs as potential anti-prostate cancer drug candidates, 15 new curcumin analogs were designed, synthesized and evaluated for cytotoxicity against two human prostate cancer cell lines, androgen-dependent LNCaP and androgen-independent PC-3. Twelve analogs (5-12, 15, 16, 19, and Zetia Brand Coupon 20) are conjugates of curcumin (1) or methyl curcumin (2) with a flutamide- or bicalutamide-like moiety. Two compounds (22 and 23) are C4-mono- and difluoro-substituted analogs of dimethyl curcumin (DMC, 21). Among the newly synthesized conjugates compound 15, a conjugate of 2 with a partial bicalutamide moiety, was more potent than bicalutamide alone and essentially equipotent with 1 and 2 against both prostate tumor cell lines with IC(50) values of 41.8 μM (for LNCaP) and 39.1 μM (for PC-3). A cell morphology study revealed that the cytotoxicity of curcumin analogs or curcumin-anti-androgen conjugates detected from both prostate cancer cell lines might be due to the suppression of pseudopodia formation. A molecular intrinsic fluorescence experiment showed that 1 accumulated mainly in the nuclei, while conjugate 6 was distributed in the cytosol. At the tested conditions, anti-androgens suppressed pseudopodia formation in PC-3 cells, but not in LNCaP cells. The evidence suggests that distinguishable target proteins are involved, resulting in the different outcomes toward pseudopodia suppression.

Androgen receptor (AR) plays a critical role in the development and progression of prostate cancer (PCa). Current clinically used antiandrogens such as flutamide, bicalutamide, and Asacol Hd Dosage newly approved enzalutamide mainly target the hormone binding pocket (HBP) of AR. However, over time, drug resistance invariably develops and switches these antiandrogens from antagonist to agonist of the AR. Accumulated evidence indicates that AR mutation is an important cause for the drug resistance. This review will give an overview of the mutation based resistance of the current clinically used antiandrogens and the rational drug design to overcome the resistance, provides a promising strategy for the development of the new generation of antiandrogens targeting HBP.

Antiandrogens, substances that prevent androgens from expressing their activity at target cells, play an important role in the treatment of prostate cancer. The most frequently used substances have either a steroidal structure (cyproterone acetate) or a non-steroidal structure (Flutamide or Anandron). Antiandrogens have been tested both alone and in combination with Tofranil Tabs treatments aimed at inhibiting testicular secretion (castration, LH-RH analogs), thereby producing complete blockade of androgen secretion and action. Patients treated by such combination protocols have often shown an improvement in the percentage of remissions and, less often, improvement in survival. Administration of antiandrogens improves the clinical symptoms of patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy, but the exact mechanism of their action requires further investigation. Cutaneous manifestations due to hyperandrogenicity (hirsutism, alopecia, acne) have also been improved by cyproterone acetate, which is often given together with estrogens (reversed sequential regime), by spironolactone or topically applied products. Finally, antiandrogens have been successfully used to treat breast cancer in men, early puberty, hypersexuality and sexual deviations.

This study was designed to differentiate the contributions of hyperandrogenism, insulin resistance (IR), and body weight to the development of endothelial dysfunction in polycystic ovary syndrome and determine the effectiveness of insulin sensitization and antiandrogenic therapy after the establishment of vascular and metabolic dysfunction using a rat model of polycystic ovary syndrome. We hypothesized that the observed endothelial dysfunction was a direct steroidal effect, as opposed to changes in insulin sensitivity or body weight. Prepubertal female rats were randomized to the implantation of a pellet containing DHT or sham procedure. In phase 1, DHT-exposed animals were randomized to pair feeding to prevent weight gain or metformin, an insulin-sensitizing agent, from 5 to 14 weeks. In phase 2, DHT-exposed animals were randomized to treatment with metformin or flutamide, a nonsteroidal androgen receptor blocker from 12 to 16 weeks. Endothelial function was assessed by the vasodilatory response of preconstricted arteries to acetylcholine. Serum steroid levels were analyzed in phase 1 animals. Fasting blood glucose and plasma insulin were analyzed and homeostasis model assessment index calculated in all animals. Our data confirm the presence of endothelial dysfunction as well as increased body weight, hypertension, hyperinsulinemia, and greater IR among DHT-treated animals. Even when normal weight was maintained through pair feeding, endothelial dysfunction, hyperinsulinemia, and IR still developed. Furthermore, despite weight gain, Cefixime Medication treatment with metformin and flutamide improved insulin sensitivity and blood pressure and restored normal endothelial function. Therefore, the observed endothelial dysfunction is most likely a direct result of hyperandrogenism-induced reductions in insulin sensitivity, as opposed to weight gain.
