World Health Organization (WHO)

Aminoglutethimide, a weak anticonvulsant, was introduced in 1960 for use in the treatment of epilepsy. However, its adrenocortical suppressant activity gave rise to serious adverse effects. The FDA decision in 1966 was taken in respect of a preparation indicated in epilepsy. In 1980 preparations containing aminoglutethimide were reintroduced in the USA exclusively for the treatment of Cushing's disease. In 1986 they were also registered in Saudi Arabia for use in Cushing's syndrome and for the treatment of breast cancer. In some other countries these preparations are additionally approved for carcinoma of the prostate.

General Description

Aminoglutethimide, 3-(4-aminophenyl)-3-ethyl-2,6-piperidinedione, is mainly usedto treat Cushing syndrome, a condition of adrenal steroidexcess, a use in which the P450scc inhibition of thiscompound is exploited rather than its aromatase inhibition.Aminoglutethimide is a weak inhibitor of aromataseand has been used successfully in the treatment of estrogen-dependent breast cancer. Because of the developmentof more selective aromatase inhibitors, the use ofaminoglutethimide for its ability to inhibit aromatase is notsupported.

Metabolic pathway

Following administration of a single oral dose of 14C- aminoglutethimide to rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, and man, more than 89% of the dose is excreted in urine and feces within 72h, and dogs eliminate only 51% in this time. Extensive metabolism occurs in all species, with N-acetylaminoglutethimide being the major metabolite except for dogs and man. In the latter two species, the unchanged drug is the main product excreted. As shown in the pathways, it appears that aminoglutethimide is metabolized by several pathways in man and, of the ten metabolites, only two are present in any quantity, namely N-acetylaminoglutethimide and N-hydroxyaminoglutethimide, the latter increasing during the course of treatment.
