Description: ODM-204 is an orally available inhibitor of both the steroid 17-alpha-hydroxylase/C17,20 lyase (CYP17A1 or CYP17) and androgen receptor (AR), with potential anti-androgen and antineoplastic activities. Upon oral administration, CYP17/AR inhibitor ODM 204 selectively inhibits the enzymatic activity of CYP17A1 in both the testes and adrenal glands, thereby inhibiting androgen production. This may both decrease androgen-dependent growth signaling and inhibit the proliferation of androgen-dependent tumor cells. In addition, ODM 204 binds to ARs in target tissues and inhibits androgen-induced receptor activation and AR nuclear translocation, which prevents the binding to and transcription of AR-responsive genes. This leads to an inhibition of growth in AR-expressing prostate cancer cells. The cytochrome P450 enzyme CYP17A1, which is localized to the endoplasmic reticulum, exhibits both 17alpha-hydroxylase and 17,20-lyase activities. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus).
