Finasteride Usage And Synthesis
Indications and UsageFinasteride is a basic drug to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostatitis, a synthetic 4-nitrogen steroid hormone compound and a sex hormone drug.
It is used for benign prostatic hyperplasia, men's prostatic fat and other diseases. Finasteride is the only oral drug approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat male pattern baldness.
Mechanisms of ActionFinasteride can selectively inhibit 5α-reductase, changing the conversion process of testosterone into 5α dihydrotestosterone (DHT), decreasing androgen levels in prostate cells, and prostate-specific antigens in serum, decreasing prostate swelling, and increasing urine flow rate, thereby alleviating the symptoms of prostatic hyperplasia. It acts by selectively blocking androgen stimulation of the prostate, but affects sexual function very rarely. Meanwhile, due to blocking of testosterone conversion and reduced synthesis of dihydrotestosterone, it can reduce dihydrotestosterone levels in the serum and scalp hair follicles, recovering the function of previously inhibited hair follicles, promoting hair growth and preventing loss.
Chemical PropertiesOff-White Crystalline Powder
UsesInhibitor of 5α-reductase, the enzyme which converts testosterone to the more potent androgen, 5α-dihydrotestosterone. Antialopecia agent.
Usesanti-androgen, alpha-reductase inhibitor
UsesTreatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia and androgenetic alopecia
UsesInhibitor of 5a-reductase, the enzyme which converts testosterone to the more potent androgen, 5a-dihydrotestosterone. Antialopecia agent
DefinitionChEBI: An aza-steroid that is a synthetic drug for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Biological ActivityAntiandrogen that inhibits type II 5 α reductase (IC 50 = 65 nM). Suppresses the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. Reduces prostatic dihydrotestosterone levels and prostate size in vivo . Orally active.
