    Antiandrogenic and antiglucocorticoid
    CYP17A1 inhibitor

    A CYP17A1 inhibitor is a type of drug which inhibits the enzyme CYP17A1. It may inhibit both of the functions of the enzyme, 17α-hydroxylase and 17,20-lyase, or may be selective for inhibition of one of these two functions (generally 17,20-lyase). These drugs prevent the conversion of pregnane steroids into androgens like testosterone and therefore are androgen biosynthesis inhibitors and functional antiandrogens. Examples of CYP17A1 inhibitors include the older drug ketoconazole and the newer drugs abiraterone acetate, orteronel, galeterone, and seviteronel.

    My friend, with late stages of prostate cancer, (when cancer is able to make its own testosterone)
    is considering
    abiraterone acetate

    tough decision.
