DUTASTERIDE

Dutasteride, sold under the brand name Avodart among others, is a medication used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) and androgenetic alopecia (pattern hair loss).

It was developed by GlaxoSmithKline and is a 5α-reductase inhibitor which prevents the conversion of the androgen sex hormone testosterone into the more potent dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The drug has been licensed for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in South Korea since 2009, but has not been approved for this specific indication in the United States, though it is commonly used off-label.

Uses: BENIGN PROSTATE HYPERPLASIA

IUPAC: (5α, 17β)-N-{2,5-Bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl}-3-oxo-4-azaandrost-1-ene-17-carboxamide
