Abiratred 500mg Tablet contains Abiraterone which belongs to a group of medicines called Androgen biosynthesis inhibitors. Abiratred 500mg Tablet is used in adult men with prednisone or prednisolone (medicines used to lower high blood pressure or reduce fluid retention in body) to treat newly diagnosed high risk metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer in combination with androgen deprivation therapy. It is also used in the treatment of metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who remain asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic after the failure of androgen deprivation therapy to whom chemotherapy is not clinically indicated.

Abiraterone is an androgen biosynthesis inhibitor which works by inhibiting the production of 17α-hydroxylase (CYP17) enzyme needed for the production of testosterone (male sex hormone) which enables the growth of cancer cells in the prostate gland. Since Abiratred 500mg Tablet suppresses the production of testosterone, the cancer cells in the prostate gland won’t be able to grow thus preventing its effects on the gland. Prior to the treatment, your doctor may want you to take liver function test to understand the functioning of the liver and may advise you to take several blood tests periodically to understand the effects on your liver. Also, along with this treatment, your doctor might advise you to take another medicine called prednisone or prednisolone which is a medicine given to lower your chances of getting high blood pressure or having too much water in your body (fluid retention) or having reduced levels of potassium in your blood.
