Flutamide is a nonsteroidal antiandrogen commonly used in the treatment of prostate cancer. Hepatic toxicity associated with flutamide has been reported with an incidence from less than 1% to about 5%. Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA), a hydrophilic bile acid, has been widely used in the treatment of cholesterol gallstones and of several liver diseases, but few data are now available concerning its use in the management of drug-induced hepatitis. The case of a patient who presented severe hepatitis with jaundice following use of flutamide is reported. UDCA treatment was started on admission and, contemporaneously, flutamide was withdrawn. Clinical and biochemical improvement was progressively observed, and the patient was discharged six weeks after the admission. Since fatal flutamide-related hepatitis has been reported, monitoring of serum liver tests is advocated during flutamide administration, and the effectiveness of UDCA in the treatment of drug-induced hepatotoxicity requires further study.

An 82-year old man received total androgen blockade therapy (bilateral orchiectomy and 375 mg/day flutamide) for the treatment of stage C prostate cancer. Serum PSA levels were undetectable for 13 months and thereafter increased gradually. We administered estramustine phosphate sodium (EPS) instead of flutamide under the diagnosis of hormone refractory prostate cancer. EPS therapy was discontinued after 9 months because serum PSA levels increased again. Then, the patient complained of bilateral breast nodules and pain. Bilateral mammectomies were performed due to bilateral breast cancers which had been diagnosed by aspiration biopsies and radiographic examinations, but he died four months after the operations. Final pathological diagnosis was ductal adenocarcinoma of the breasts. Immunohistochemical study revealed expressions of PSA in the breast cancers. We diagnosed double cancers of the prostate and the breast because of the different expression patterns of progesterone receptor between them. We review the literatures and discuss the differential diagnosis of prostate cancer and PSA-producing breast cancer.

Androgen receptors (ARs) mediate the physiological effects of androgens in vertebrates. In fishes, AR-mediated pathways can be modulated by aquatic contaminants, resulting in the masculinisation of female fish or diminished secondary sex characteristics in males. The Murray-Darling rainbowfish (Melanotaenia fluviatilis) is a small-bodied freshwater teleost used in Australia as a test species for environmental toxicology research. We determined concentration-response profiles for selected agonists and antagonists of rainbowfish ARα and ARβ using transient transactivation assays. For both ARα and ARβ, the order of potency of natural agonists was 11-ketotestosterone (11-KT)>5α-dihydrotestosterone>testosterone>androstenedione. Methyltestosterone was a highly potent agonist of both receptors relative to 11-KT. The relative potency of the veterinary growth-promoting androgen, 17β-trenbolone, varied by more than a factor of 5 between ARα and ARβ. The non-steroidal anti-androgen bicalutamide exhibited high inhibitory potency relative to the structurally related model anti-androgen, flutamide. The inhibitory potency of the agricultural fungicide, vinclozolin, was approximately 1.7-fold relative to flutamide for ARα, but over 20-fold in the case of ARβ. Fluorescent protein tagging of ARs showed that the rainbowfish ARα subtype is constitutively localised to the nucleus, while ARβ is cytoplasmic in the absence of ligand, an observation which agrees with the reported subcellular localisation of AR subtypes from other teleost species. Collectively, these data suggest that M. fluviatilis ARα and ARβ respond differently to environmental AR modulators and that in vivo sensitivity to contaminants may depend on the tissue distribution of the AR subtypes at the time of exposure.

Median PFS between initiation of androgen deprivation therapy and the diagnosis of mCRPC was 32 months. Median PFS on docetaxel treatment was 9 months. Median PFS on abiraterone treatment was 11 months. Patients with higher Gleason scores (GS) (8-10) at initial diagnosis had a significantly longer median PFS on docetaxel as compared to patients with GS 6-7, p = 0.01. We demonstrate a significant correlation between the PFS on docetaxel and PFS on abiraterone in the post-docetaxel setting (Kendall tau r = 0.32, p = 0.019) as well as a significant negative correlation between the PSA nadir under abiraterone treatment and the time to progression under abiraterone (Kendall tau r = -0.43, p = 0.007).

Accumulating evidences suggest that sex affects lung development. Indeed, a higher incidence of respiratory distress syndrome is observed in male compared to female preterm neonates at comparable developmental stage and experimental studies demonstrated an androgen-related delay in male lung maturation. However, the precise mechanisms underlying these deleterious effects of androgens in lung maturation are only partially understood.

Recently identified androgen receptor (AR) coactivators were used in this study to determine whether the specificity of sex hormones and antiandrogens could be modulated at the coactivator level. We found that ARA70 is the best coactivator to confer the androgenic activity on 17beta-estradiol. Only ARA70 and ARA55 could increase significantly the androgenic activity of hydroxyflutamide, a widely used antiand rogen for the treatment of prostate cancer. None of the AR coactivators we tested could significantly confer androgenic activity on progesterone and glucocorticoid at their physiological concentrations (1-10nM). We also found that ARA70, ARA55, and ARA54, but not steroid receptor coactivator-1 (SRC-1) and Rb, could significantly enhance the delta5-androstenediol-mediated AR transactivation. Furthermore, in comparing the relative specificity of these coactivators to AR in DU145 cells, our results suggested that ARA70 has a relatively higher specificity and that SRC-1 can enhance almost equally well many other steroid receptors. Finally, our data demonstrated that AR itself and some select AR coactivators such as ARA70 or ARA54 could, respectively, interact with CBP and p300/CBP-associated factors that have histone acetyl-transferase activity for assisting chromatin remodeling. Together, our data suggest that the specificity of sex hormones and antiandrogens can be modulated by some selective AR coactivators. These findings may not only help us to better understand the specificity of the sex hormones and antiandrogens, but also facilitate the development of better antiandrogens to fight the androgen-related diseases, such as prostate cancer.

The nonsteroidal antiandrogen casodex has been described as a peripherally selective drug for the treatment of prostatic cancer. In this study we determined its activity in various models of hormone-dependent malignancies including those of the prostate and the breast. Analysis of endocrine effects in rats after 15 days of treatment revealed a strong reduction of the weights of prostates and seminal vesicles and a significant rise of testosterone serum levels as a result of the interference with central feedback mechanisms. The growth of androgen-sensitive human LNCaP/FGC prostate cancer cells was strongly inhibited by casodex. Unlike hydroxyflutamide, casodex was also active in hormone-depleted medium. The inhibitory effect was overcome by addition of testosterone propionate, which indicates an androgen-receptor-mediated mode of action. In rats bearing Dunning R3327-G prostate carcinomas casodex exerted a strong antitumour effect at the beginning of therapy. However, after 4 weeks of treatment tumours resumed growth whereas diethylstilboestrol-treated tumours remained static. In MXT-M3.2 mouse mammary tumours with significant quantities of androgen receptors casodex was also effective in inhibiting tumour growth. After 6 weeks of treatment, tumour weights were reduced by 69% whereas uterine weights were significantly increased, possibly because of a progestin-like activity of the drug. Csodex is very active in various models of hormone-dependent carcinomas. However, the limited duration of action in prostatic tumours and the incomplete growth inhibition in mammary tumours suggest that it should be used only combination with other endocrine therapies.

Inhibition of the ligand-activated androgen receptor (AR) by antiandrogens plays an important role in the treatment of various hyperandrogenic disorders including prostate cancer. However, the molecular mechanisms of antiandrogen activity in vivo remain unclear. In this study we analyzed the effects of cyproterone acetate (CPA), flutamide (F), and hydroxyflutamide (OHF) on transcriptional activation and chromatin remodeling of the genomically integrated mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) promoter. This promoter has provided an excellent model system to study the impact of steroid hormones on transcriptional activation in the context of a defined chromatin structure. The MMTV hormone response element is positioned on a phased nucleosome, which becomes remodeled in response to steroids. We utilized this model system in mouse L-cell fibroblasts that contain a stably integrated MMTV promoter. In these cells, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) induced a large increase of AR protein levels that correlated with transcriptional activation and chromatin remodeling of the MMTV promoter. Coadministration of DHT and CPA or DHT and OHF in these cells inhibited the increase of AR levels, which resulted in a strong blockage of transcriptional activation and chromatin remodeling of the MMTV promoter. In contrast, F had no significant influence on these activities. We conclude that a major portion of the antiandrogenic effects of CPA and OHF in vivo are mediated by the reduction of AR levels.

Prenatal treatment of male rats with the anti-androgen, flutamide (FL), demasculinizes the sexually dimorphic spinal nucleus of the bulbocavernosus (SNB) by reducing the number of SNB neurons, the size of the somas and nuclei of SNB neurons, and the size of their target muscles in adulthood. However, FL does not affect mounting or the traditional, postural measure of intromission, indicating that the SNB system does not play a major role in the mediation of these particular behaviors. Postnatal testosterone propionate (TP) treatment of male rats castrated on the day of birth results in more male copulatory behaviors in adulthood and masculinizes all measures of the SNB system. The postnatal masculinization by TP is more pronounced in males treated prenatally with FL, for morphological but not behavioral measures. The combined treatment of prenatal FL and day 1 castration without TP therapy results in a male with a completely demasculinized SNB system. Specifically, such males have SNB neurons that are as scarce and as small as those of females and, like females, they lack the target muscles of the SNB. These results support the hypothesis that perinatal androgens normally direct the sexually dimorphic development of the SNB and its target muscles.

The role of prenatal androgen on the differentiation of sexually dimorphic juvenile play and adult copulatory patterns was evaluated in male offspring of rats injected with 5 mg of the androgen receptor blocker flutamide (4'-nitro-3'-trifluoromethylisobutyranilide) from Days 11-21 of pregnancy. Rough-and-tumble play was incompletely masculinized in flutamide-exposed males at 31 days of age. The copulatory potential tested at 70 days of age was severely attenuated by prenatal flutamide. There was no ejaculatory behavior, low levels of intromissions, and depressed levels of nonintromittive mounting when the animals were tested while gonadally intact. Adult plasma levels of testosterone (T) were not different in flutamide-exposed males and controls, but testicular and epididymal weight, anogenital (AG) distance, and penile length were reduced. While reductions in intromittive mounting and ejaculatory behavior may be due to the abnormalities in the external genitalia, the incomplete masculinization of play and the reduction in nonintromittive mounting probably resulted from effects the androgen antagonist exerted on sexual differentiation of the central nervous system. These data suggest that androgen released prior to birth is needed for the full masculinization of juvenile play behaviors in the rat, just as it is for the adult copulatory pattern.

Widespread environmental antiandrogen contamination has been associated with negative impacts on biodiversity and human health. In particular, many pesticides are antiandrogenic, creating a need for robust and sensitive environmental monitoring. Our aim was to develop a sensitive and specific transgenic medaka (Oryzias latipes) model bearing an androgen responsive fluorescent reporter construct for whole organism-based environmental screening of pro- and antiandrogens. We analyzed the 5' regions of the androgen responsive three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) spiggin genes in silico, revealing conserved blocks of sequence harboring androgen response elements. Identified putative promoters were cloned upstream of GFP. Germinal transgenesis with spg1-gfp led to stable medaka lines. GFP induction was exclusive to the kidney, the site of spiggin protein production in sticklebacks. Significant GFP expression was induced by three or four-day androgen treatment of newly hatched fry, but not by estrogens, mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids or progestogens. The model responded dose-dependently to androgens, with highest sensitivity to 17MT (1.5 μg/L). In addition to flutamide, the biocides fenitrothion, vinclozolin and linuron significantly inhibited 17MT-induced GFP induction, validating the model for detection of antiandrogens. The spg1-gfp medaka model provides a sensitive, specific, and physiologically pertinent biosensor system for analyzing environmental androgen activity.

Regulation of ACTH secretion changes between early (40 d) and late (60 d) puberty in male rats. We tested whether this occurs because of activating effects of testosterone on the brain. We measured testosterone and ACTH responses to repeated restraint in adrenalectomized, corticosterone-replaced rats entering and leaving puberty with or without treatment with flutamide, a nonsteroidal androgen-receptor antagonist. Flutamide increased testosterone. ACTH responses were high and suppressed by flutamide at 40 d. At 60 d, ACTH responses were low and increased by flutamide. On d 4, basal arginine vasopressin (AVP) mRNA was increased by restraint, but not age, in the medial parvicellular paraventricular nucleus (mpPVN) and medial amygdala and increased with age in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis. We counted numbers of AVP-immunoreactive (AVP-ir) and corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF)-ir neurons. In medial amygdala, there was no change in AVP+ cells. With restraint, CRF+ cells in the central nucleus decreased at 40 d and increased at 60 d. Flutamide did not affect the response at 40 d but blocked restraint-induced increases at 60 d. After restraint, the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis AVP-ir correlated negatively with mpPVN CRF-ir at 40 d and with mpPVN AVP-ir at 60 d. In PVN, there were no effects on CRF+ cells. However, AVP+ cells increased only with restraint plus flutamide at 40 d and tended to increase with restraint and decrease with restraint plus flutamide at 60 d. We conclude that during puberty testosterone induces marked changes in regulation of neuropeptides in pathways known to determine autonomic, neuroendocrine, and behavioral responses to chronic stress.

We examined the influence of androgens on fetal medial basal hypothalamic and preoptic area (MBH-POA) calbindin-D28K levels (via Western analysis) by treating pregnant rats with testosterone or flutamide, (an androgen receptor blocker). MBH-POA calbindin-D28K levels were significantly decreased in flutamide-treated male fetuses, whereas, MBH-POA calbindin-D28K levels were significantly increased in testosterone-treated female fetuses compared to controls. These results suggest that MBH-POA calbindin-D28K is modulated during prenatal development by androgens.

3mm abdominal aortic rings that were obtained from 3 months old male Sprague-Dawley rats were suspended in organ baths containing Hepes buffered PSS bubbled with 100% oxygen. Relaxation response to testosterone and DHEA was studied in noradrenalin pre-contracted rings. The role of aromatase and androgen receptor was assessed by inhibition using aminogluthetemide and blockade using flutamide respectively. Relaxation responses of the rings to testosterone in the presence of l-NAME, indomethacin, barium chloride, apamin, charybdotoxin, iberiotoxin, and nifedipine were also determined.

We developed a decision analytic model based on a clinical trial and literature review. The two interventions evaluated were: (i) monthly injection of degarelix and (ii) 3-monthly triptorelin therapy plus short-term flutamide, cyproterone or bicalutamide treatment. The model consisted of a decision tree monitoring a hypothetical cohort of patients aged 70 years from the start of hormonal treatment to the end of the first month, and a Markov model monitoring patients from the end of month 1 for a time horizon of 10 years (i.e. when 96% of patients are assumed to have died). The base-case analysis assumed patients present with asymptomatic metastatic prostate cancer. Costs and outcomes were collected over the model time horizon. Outcome measures were quality-adjusted life years (QALYs), lifetime costs and incremental cost-effectiveness ratios. Sensitivity analyses (one-way and multi-way) and probabilistic sensitivity analyses were conducted to explore the uncertainties around the assumptions.

This study sought to establish whether reduced androgen levels/action in the fetal rat testis induced by di(n-butyl) phthalate (DBP) contributes to dysgenetic features, namely reduced Sertoli cell number, occurrence of multinucleated gonocytes (MNG), and Leydig cell aggregation. Pregnant rats were administered treatments or cotreatments designed to manipulate testosterone levels [DBP, testosterone propionate (TP)] or action [flutamide, 7,12-dimethyl-benz[a]anthracene (DMBA)]. The aforementioned end points were analyzed and related to intratesticular testosterone (ITT) levels and peripheral androgen action (anogenital distance). Dysgenetic features were also evaluated in mice with inactivation of the androgen receptor (testicular feminized or ARKO mice). Exposure to DBP alone, or combined with flutamide, DMBA, or TP, resulted in reduced Sertoli cell number and ITT levels, as did exposure to TP alone; coadministration of DBP + TP caused the most severe reduction in both parameters. A positive correlation between ITT levels and Sertoli cell number was found (r = 0.791; P = 0.019). Similarly, exposure to DBP alone, or as a cotreatment, significantly increased occurrence of MNG and Leydig cell aggregation, and these were negatively correlated with ITT levels. Exposure to flutamide or DMBA alone had no significant effect on these dysgenetic end points. These findings suggest that reduced ITT decreases fetal Sertoli cell numbers and might be involved in Leydig cell aggregation and MNG. However, of these three end points, only Sertoli cell number was affected significantly in ARKO/testicular feminized mice with absent androgen action. Therefore, induction of MNG and Leydig cell aggregation might result from DBP-induced effects other than suppression of ITT levels.

Records of 105 consecutive patients who were treated with pelvic irradiation after radical retropubic prostatectomy between August 1985 and December 1995 were reviewed. Seventy-four patients received radiation alone (mean follow up: 4.6 years), and 31 received transient androgen blockade with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (4) androgen receptor blocker (1) or both (24) beginning 2 months prior to irradiation (mean follow-up 3.0 years) for a mean duration of 6 months. Two of these patients were excluded from further analysis because they received hormonal therapy for more than 1 year. Patients received a prostatic fossa dose of 60-70 Gy at 2 Gy per fraction; 48 patients also received pelvic nodal irradiation to a median dose of 50 Gy. Survival, freedom from clinical relapse (FFCR), and freedom from biochemical relapse (FFBR) were evaluated by the Kaplan-Meier method. Biochemical relapse was defined as two consecutive PSA measurements exceeding 0.07 ng/ml.

Despite continuous prolonged T suppression for up to 3 years due to histrelin implant, LH and T increased rapidly following implant removal, indicating that suppression is reversible. In view of the 9-month suppression of LH and T after the last depot GnRH injection in 7 of 8 patients, it is possible to space GnRH agonist administration at longer intervals. However, T must be monitored to determine that suppression is maintained.

Several presentations by attendees of the 11th International Prostate Cancer Update addressed recent advances in prostate cancer treatment. A study that examined whether a relationship exists between neuroendocrine (NE) cell differentiation and hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC) concluded that the appearance of NE cells in prostatic carcinoma is an important phenomenon in the development of HRPC.

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 buy eulexin 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 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.

Of the buy eulexin 46 patients, 22 (48%) responded to the secondary hormone therapy as a 50% or more reduction from baseline prostate-specific antigen (PSA) with a median response duration of 9.2 months. The PSA response group was correlated with significantly favorable cancer-specific survival (CSS) (92% vs 59% at 5 years, p = 0.0146) compared with the non-response group. Above-normal CgA levels at study entry were detected in 15 patients (33%), but no association with CSS was identified. Data on CgA kinetics were available in 35 patients. The CgA levels before and at 3 months during the treatment were similar. However, eight patients (23%) with an increase in CgA level of a quarter or more from baseline had a tendency for worse CSS (63% vs 84% at 5 years, p = 0.0507) compared with the remaining patients.

Estrogenic and androgenic steroids can be synthesised in the brain and rapidly modulate synaptic transmission and plasticity through direct interaction with membrane receptors for estrogens (ERs) and androgens (ARs). We used whole cell patch clamp recordings in brainstem slices of male rats to explore the influence of ER and AR activation and local synthesis of 17β-estradiol (E2) and 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on the long-term synaptic changes induced in the neurons of the medial vestibular nucleus (MVN). Long-term depression (LTD) and long-term potentiation (LTP) caused by different patterns of high frequency stimulation (HFS) of the primary vestibular afferents were assayed under the blockade of ARs and ERs or in the presence of inhibitors for enzymes synthesizing DHT (5α-reductase) and E2 (P450-aromatase) from testosterone (T). We found that LTD is mediated by interaction of locally produced androgens with ARs and LTP by interaction of locally synthesized E2 with ERs. In fact, the AR block with flutamide prevented LTD while did not affect LTP, and the buy eulexin blockade of ERs with ICI 182,780 abolished LTP without influencing LTD. Moreover, the block of P450-aromatase with letrozole not only prevented the LTP induction, but inverted LTP into LTD. This LTD is likely due to the local activation of androgens, since it was abolished under blockade of ARs. Conversely, LTD was still induced in the presence of finasteride the inhibitor of 5α-reductase demonstrating that T is able to activate ARs and induce LTD even when DHT is not synthesized. This study demonstrates a key and opposite role of sex neurosteroids in the long-term synaptic changes of the MVN with a specific role of T-DHT for LTD and of E2 for LTP. Moreover, it suggests that different stimulation patterns can lead to LTD or LTP by specifically activating the enzymes involved in the synthesis of androgenic or estrogenic neurosteroids.

Pretreatment with flutamide increased the serum testosterone level, but the testosterone surge after leuprorelin administration was almost the same in all 5 treatment groups. In patients who had been treated with flutamide in combination with leuprorelin, the mean PSA level did not exceed the pretreatment levels after leuprorelin administration. The rate of decrease in PSA in the group receiving simultaneous administration of flutamide with leuprorelin showed a Diflucan Reviews decline comparable to that during the period before leuprorelin administration in the flutamide pretreatment groups.

In this paper the preparation of magnetic nanocarriers (MNCs), containing superparamagnetic domains, is reported, useful as potential magnetically targeted drug delivery systems. The preparation of MNCs was performed by using the PHEA-IB-p(BMA) graft copolymer as coating material through the homogenization-solvent evaporation method. Magnetic and nonmagnetic nanocarriers containing flutamide (FLU-MNCs) were prepared. The prepared nanocarriers have been exhaustively characterized by dynamic light scattering (DLS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and magnetic measurements. Biological evaluation was performed by in vitro cytotoxicity and cell uptake tests and in vivo biodistribution studies. Magnetic nanocarriers showed dimensions of about 300 nm with a narrow size distribution, an amount of loaded FLU of 20% (w/w), and a superparamagnetic behavior. Cell culture experiments performed on prostate cancer cell line LNCaP demonstrated the cytotoxic effect of FLU- Dosage Valtrex MNCs. In vivo biodistribution studies carried out by the application of an external magnetic field in rats demonstrated the effect of the external magnet on modifying the biodistribution of FLU-MNCs. FLU-MNCs resulted efficiently internalized by tumor cells and susceptible to magnetic targeting by application of an external magnetic field. The proposed nanocarriers can represent a very promising approach to obtain an efficient magnetically targeted anticancer drug delivery system.

This study explored the expression of connexin 43 (Cx43) in the testes of prepubertal Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats following in utero flutamide (Flu) exposure. Connexins constitute the major protein type in gap junctions. Connexin 43, the most prominent connexin family member expressed by testes, is localized at the base of seminiferous tubules in humans and rodents, and may Requip Drug Abuse be involved in fertility. Flutamide was injected subcutaneously into pregnant SD rats on gestational days 12-21 (25 mg/kg/day). Immunohistochemistry, Western blotting, and real-time PCR was used to investigate the distribution and the expression of Cx43 protein and mRNA in the testis on postnatal day 20 (PD20). Following Flu-exposure, Cx43 was observed between Sertoli cells in the seminiferous tubules. On PD20, no Cx43 protein was expressed by the spermatogonial cell layer of the seminiferous tubules in the controls, but was observed in the Flu-exposed group. Western blotting showed that Cx43 was expressed at significantly lower levels in Flu-exposed testes than controls on PD20 (p < 0.001). On PD20, levels of Cx43 mRNA in undescended Flu-exposed testes were significantly lower than in controls (p < 0.05) and descended Flu-exposed testes (p < 0.01). After Flu-exposure in the rat embryonic period, Cx43 mRNA and protein expression were downregulated, and its distribution in the seminiferous tubules was abnormal.

Hypothalamo-pituitary inhibition of reproductive function during undernutrition is well known, however, the physiological mechanisms leading to suppression of gonadotrophin secretion are not clear. A variety of studies have indicated that testicular negative feedback on LH secretion is enhanced during food restriction. To evaluate directly the suppression by endogenous androgens on hypothalamic GnRH pulse generator activity during food restriction and examine the mechanism underlying the increased testicular steroidal feedback, we examined (1) circulating bioactive LH (bLH) levels in response to selective cerebral androgen blockade by intraventricular administration of an androgen receptor antagonist (hydroxyflutamide, SCH 16423) and (2) the binding capacity and affinity of androgen receptors in medio-basal hypothalamus, pituitary and prostate during undernutrition of intact mature male rats. Hydroxyflutamide (20 micrograms in 10 microliters vehicle), but not vehicle alone, markedly increased bLH levels in both food restricted and ad-lib fed rats. However, the faster (geometric mean 11.4 vs 27.7 min) and greater (47.2 vs 21.9 ng/ml) increase in bLH level in food restricted compared with ad-lib fed controls demonstrates an enhanced sensitivity to Cialis Y Alcohol blockade of androgenic negative feedback during undernutrition. Food restriction increased androgen receptor binding capacity in pituitary (3.36 vs 0.77 fmol/mg protein) but not in medio-basal hypothalamus or prostate while binding affinity was unchanged by undernutrition in all 3 tissues. These studies reveal that undernutrition both enhances tonic, androgen receptor-mediated feedback suppression of GnRH secretion and increases in pituitary (but not hypothalamic) androgen receptor numbers to cause inhibition of LH secretion.

Flutamide is rapidly metabolized by hydroxylation of the side chain to SCH 16423 (alpha, alpha, alpha-trifluoro-2-methyl-4'-nitro-m-lactotoluidide), the major metabolic product in all species studied, which is biologically active in vivo and in vitro studies. Flutamide exhibits its antiandrogenic activity by inhibiting androgen uptake and/or inhibition of nuclear binding of the Tegretol Xr Generic androgens in the target tissues. At daily doses from 1 to 50 mg/kg body weight, flutamide reduced seminal vesicle and ventral prostate weights of intact male rats without affecting sexual potency. In addition, flutamide reduced the rate of DNA synthesis in the prostate of rats to a greater degree than other steroidal antiandrogens. The antiandrogenic activity was corroborated by the inhibition of androgen-induced prostate hypertrophy in orchiectomized rats through the use of testosterone, testosterone propionate, dihydrotestosterone, androstenedione, and dehydroepiandrosterone. Flutamide, given orally, reduced prostatic size in aged dogs with benign prostate hyperplasia after six weeks and one year. The baboon prostate was also reduced in size when flutamide was administered three times a week for four weeks.

A multicenter, randomized, double-blind study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of the antiandrogen flutamide in treating patients with urinary obstruction caused by benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Patients were randomized to either flutamide (750 mg/d) or a placebo. Prostate size (measured by ultrasound), uroflow, and symptomatology were assessed in all patients. Of the 84 patients entered in the study, 30 receiving placebo have, to date, reached twelve weeks and 4 have reached twenty-four weeks. Twenty-eight patients receiving flutamide have reached twelve weeks, while 8 have reached twenty-four weeks. At twenty-four Plavix 75 Mg weeks, a 41 percent median decrease in prostate volume and a 46 percent increase in full-bladder uroflow was observed in patients receiving flutamide; no significant changes in prostate volume or uroflow occurred in patients receiving placebo. However, significant symptomatic improvements were noted in both groups. Only 4 patients (11%) had significant adverse reactions to flutamide; these reactions included breast pain and diarrhea. No cases of impotence occurred. It was concluded that flutamide may be a safe and effective drug for the treatment of symptomatic BPH.

Two HPLC-DAD assays for the simultaneous quantitation of exemestane (EXE) and resveratrol (RES)-Mix 1-and EXE and luteolin (LUT)-Mix 2-in novel breast cancer therapy nanoformulations were developed. Calibration curves 15-30 µg/mL and samples were injected through an Inertsil ODS-3 (250 × 4.6 mm, 5 µm) column. The gradient elution for Mix 1 was methanol : 0.05% (v/v) acetic acid in water (60 : 40 to 80 : 20, linear over 2 min), and for Mix 2, it was methanol : water (60 : 40 for 4 min, then ramped linearly to 90 : 10, over 12 min) pumped at 1.5 mL/min for 4 min, then 1 mL/min till the end of run. EXE, RES, LUT and flutamide (internal standard (IS)) were measured at 246, 307, 350 and 300 nm, respectively. For Mix 1, RES, EXE and IS eluted at 3.5, 6.8 and 7.4 min, respectively, while for Mix 2, LUT, EXE and IS eluted at 7.5, 11.4 and 12.7 min, respectively. The mean r(2) for the standard curves was ≥0.99, and percentage coefficient of variation and % error of the mean Zetia Pill were <2. Both assays successfully quantitated Mix 1 and Mix 2 in their nanoformulations. The two developed assays were sensitive and selective for the analysis of EXE-LUT and EXE-RES mixtures in nanoformulations according to International Conference on Harmonization guidelines.

Androgen action during the fetal masculinization programming window (MPW) determines the maximum potential for growth of androgen-dependent organs (eg, seminal vesicles, prostate, penis, and perineum) and is reflected in anogenital distance (AGD). As such, determining AGD in postnatal life has potential as a lifelong easily accessible biomarker of overall androgen action during the MPW. However, whether the perineum remains androgen responsive in adulthood and thus responds plastically to perturbed androgen drive remains unexplored. To determine this, we treated adult male rats with either the antiandrogen flutamide or the estrogen diethylstilbestrol (DES) for 5 weeks, followed by a 4-week washout period of no treatment. We determined AGD and its correlate anogenital index (AGI) (AGD relative to body weight) at weekly intervals across this period and compared these with normal adult rats (male and female), castrated male rats, and appropriate vehicle controls. These data showed that, in addition to reducing circulating testosterone and seminal vesicle weight, castration significantly reduced AGD (by ∼17%), demonstrating that there is a degree of plasticity in AGD in adulthood. Flutamide treatment increased circulating testosterone yet also reduced seminal vesicle weight due to local antagonism of androgen receptor. Despite this suppression, surprisingly, flutamide treatment had no effect on AGD at any time point. In contrast, although DES treatment suppressed circulating testosterone and reduced seminal vesicle weight, it also induced a significant reduction in AGD (by ∼11%), which returned to normal 1 week after cessation of DES treatment. We conclude that AGD in adult rats exhibits a degree of plasticity, which may be mediated by modulation of local androgen/estrogen action. The implications of these findings regarding the use of AGD as a lifelong clinical biomarker of fetal androgen action are discussed.
