Enzalutamide, also known as MDV3100, is an orally bioavailable, organic, non-steroidal small molecule targeting the androgen receptor (AR) with potential antineoplastic activity. Through a mechanism that is reported to be different from other approved AR antagonists, selective androgen receptor modulator MDV3100 inhibits the activity of prostate cancer cell ARs, which may result in a reduction in prostate cancer cell proliferation and, correspondingly, a reduction in the serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) level. In August 2012, the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved enzalutamide for the treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer.

How to use

In Vitro:

MDV-3100 has greater affinity to AR than ICI 176334 does in a competition assay with 16β-[18F]fluoro-5α-DHT (18-FDHT) in castration-resistant LNCaP/AR cells (AR-overexpressing). While MDV-3100 shows no agonism in LNCaP/AR prostate cells. MDV-3100 antagonizes induction of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and transmembrane serine protease 2 (TMPRSS2), combination with the synthetic androgen R1881 in parental LNCaP cells. MDV-3100 inhibits the transcriptional activity of a mutant AR protein (W741C, mutation of Trp741 to Cys). MDV-3100 also prevents nuclear translocation and co-activator recruitment of the ligand-receptor complex.

In Vivo:

MDV-3100 induces great tumor regression in castrate male mice bearing LNCaP/AR xenografts at a dose of 10 mg/kg. MDV-3100 shows dose-independent pharmacokinetics at intravenous and oral doses of 0.5-5 mg/kg.
