The majority of available antiandrogens have been reported to possess agonist activity to induce prostate-specific antigen, which might result in antiandrogen withdrawal syndrome. Here we report the identification of 3 beta-acetoxyandrost-1,5-diene-17-ethylene ketal (ADEK) from dehydroepiandrosterone metabolites and derivatives as a potent antiandrogen. We found ADEK could interrupt androgen binding to the androgen receptor (AR) and suppress androgen-induced transactivations of WT AR and a mutant AR in prostate cancer cells. ADEK inhibited prostate-specific antigen expression as well as growth in LNCaP prostate cancer cells stimulated by androgen. Importantly, ADEK had only marginal agonist effects, as compared with commonly used antiandrogens such as hydroxyflutamide and bicalutamide, leading to a lower possibility of inducing withdrawal response. Moreover, ADEK could block an adrenal androgen androstenediol-induced AR transactivation that hydroxyflutamide and bicalutamide failed to block. These unique antiandrogenic activities make ADEK a potential therapeutic compound that might be able to inhibit AR-mediated prostate cancer progression. Further in vivo studies might facilitate the development of a better antiandrogen for the treatment of prostate cancer.

Testicular macrophages increase in concentration during postnatal development in rats. This process may be under hormonal control since administration of hCG stimulates a similar increase to occur precociously. The purpose of the present studies was to determine how the macrophage population is regulated during normal postnatal development and in response to exogenous hCG. We first determined that testicular macrophages proliferate in situ during development and that hCG administration results in an increase in proliferation when given to 10-day-old rats. We next evaluated whether hCG might exert its effects through enhanced secretion of testosterone from Leydig cells. We found that testosterone could not induce a precocious increment in the macrophage concentration when it was administered to newborn pups for 10 days. Finally, the normal increase in macrophage concentration that occurs prior to puberty could not be blocked by treatment with the antiandrogen Casodex. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that the macrophage population expands by proliferation, perhaps under gonadotropin control. In addition, neither the precocial expansion that occurs in response to hCG nor the normal expansion that occurs before puberty is mediated by testosterone.

Combination treatment of carbidopa plus bicalutamide significantly inhibited cell viability in both cell lines and induced apoptosis. The combination treatment also decreased androgen-induced PSA transactivation by 62.6% in LNCaP cells and by 55.6% in C4-2 cells compared to control, while bicalutamide monotherapy reduced PSA levels by 27.5% and 29.1% in LNCaP and C4-2 cells. In vivo, bicalutamide monotherapy delayed LNCaP CRPC tumor growth rate by 72.2%, while combination treatment reduced tumor growth by 84.4% compared to control. Serum PSA was also reduced 70.6% with bicalutamide monotherapy, while combination therapy reduced PSA levels by 76.7% compared to control.

The progression of prostate cancer to castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) is often a result of somatic alterations in the PI3K/Akt/mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) pathway, suggesting that therapies targeting this pathway might lead to improved survival and efficacy. Here, we systematically evaluate the results of clinical trials investigating mTOR inhibition in CRPC and utilize preclinical data to predict clinical outcomes.

AQP9 mRNA and protein were expressed in the rat prostate. Surgical castration or bicalutamide treatment significantly decreased their expression. In addition, the treatment with testosterone propionate after castration restored the expression to the level of the controls. An RNAi experiment in PNT2 also decreased the expression.

beta-Catenin is a multifunctional molecule with important roles in intercellular adhesion and signal transduction. We reported previously that beta-catenin is mutated in human prostate cancer. In this study, we investigated the role of beta-catenin mutations on androgen receptor (AR) signaling. beta-Catenin significantly enhanced androgen-stimulated transcriptional activation by the AR. beta-Catenin also increased AR transcriptional activation by androstenedione and estradiol and diminished the antagonism of bicalutamide. Coimmunoprecipitation of beta-catenin with AR from LNCaP prostate cancer cells showed that the two molecules are present in the same complex. The amount of beta-catenin in complex with AR was increased by androgen. These findings implicate beta-catenin in the regulation of AR function and support a role for beta-catenin mutations in the pathogenesis of prostate cancer.

Castration therapy adjuvant to radiotherapy can significantly improve overall survival compared with radiotherapy alone in patients with locally advanced prostate cancer. Although many of the adverse effects of castration therapy are manageable, they can have a detrimental effect on quality of life. Here we evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of the non-castration-based therapy bicalutamide ('Casodex') 150 mg adjuvant to radiotherapy in patients with T1-4, M0, any n prostate cancer.

Casodex is an orally active non-steroidal antiandrogen that is highly selective for androgen receptors in animals and man. It is indicated for the non-surgical treatment of advanced prostate cancer in man. The present open controlled study in 13 Casodex-treated and 21 orchidectomy-alone (control) patients addressed the hypothesis that chronic administration of antiandrogens will result in Leydig cell hyperplasia as a result of feedback inhibition of the pituitary resulting in increased luteinising hormone (LH) stimulation of Leydig cells. Although Casodex has been shown to produce a moderate rise in circulating plasma testosterone concentration on chronic treatment in prostate cancer patients, a controlled histopathological and morphometric assessment of the testis following orchidectomy in relapsed Casodex patients showed no effect on Leydig cell populations compared with an orchidectomy alone (control) group. No evidence for induction of Leydig cell hypertrophy or hyperplasia as a result of chronic oral administration of 50 mg Casodex daily was obtained in this study.

We recently demonstrated that glutamate receptor GRM1 was expressed at high levels in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CR-PCa) tissues and cells. Herein, we determined the relationship between GRM1 and AR, PSA, and tumor growth, remission, and recurrence in preclinical PCa models. The effect of alterations in GRM1 expression was also investigated on PCa cell growth, migration and invasion.

At 1 year, the mean (standard deviation) change from baseline in growth rate was -1.6 (+/- 5.1) cm/year and -0.1 (+/- 1.8) SD units, and in bone maturation was -2.3 (+/- 0.5) years. The bone age/chronological age ratio was reduced from 2.1 (+/- 0.6) at baseline to 1.0 (+/- 0.4) (p = 0.00013). Steady-state trough R-bicalutamide and anastrozole concentrations were attained by Day 21 and 8, respectively. Gynecomastia (42.9%) and breast tenderness (12.5%) were the most common treatment-related adverse events.

A multi-institutional prospective trial was performed between July 2000 and May 2003 involving high-risk prostate cancer patients without metastasis, including 21 who received 8 months of NHT before radical prostatectomy. High-risk group was defined as clinical stage > or =T2c and/or prostate-specific antigen (PSA) >20 ng/ml and/or Gleason score > or =8. PSA values were considered elevated (biochemical failure) if values of 0.1 ng/ml or greater were obtained.

A total of 1344 genes showed more than 2-fold change in expression by ADT, including 35 downregulated and 5 upregulated HIF1 targets. Six genes were shared HIF1 and AR targets, and their downregulation was confirmed with quantitative RT-PCR. Significant suppression of the biological processes proliferation, metabolism, and stress response in androgen-deprived xenografts was found, consistent with tumor regression. Nineteen downregulated HIF1 targets were involved in those significant biological processes, most of them in metabolism. Four of these were shared AR and HIF1 targets, including genes encoding the regulatory glycolytic proteins HK2, PFKFB3, and SLC2A1. Most of the downregulated HIF1 targets were induced by hypoxia in androgen-responsive prostate cancer cell lines, confirming their role as hypoxia-responsive HIF1 targets in prostate cancer. Downregulation of HIF1 targets was consistent with the absence of HIF1α protein in xenografts and downregulation in patients by ADT (P<.001).

We assessed whether alternative transcripts (using KLK2, KLK3 and KLK4 as models) are differentially regulated by androgens and anti-androgens as an indicator of prostate cancers as they acquire treatment resistance. Using RNAseq of LNCaP cells treated with dihydrotestosterone, bicalutamide and enzalutamide, we show that the expression of variant KLK transcripts is markedly different to other variant transcripts at those loci. We also reveal that KLK variants are also over 2-fold more highly expressed in prostate cancers compared to their corresponding normal prostate. We propose that androgens and anti-androgens can activate specific variant transcripts of critical prostate cancer genes during treatment resistance.

Recognition of micro-RNA function and their contribution to the biology of disease has given a new insight into disease mechanisms, with these discoveries potentially improving clinical diagnostic and therapeutic options. miR-125b has been identified as an important regulator in various cancers, including prostate cancer, but the mechanism of this regulation remains incompletely understood. In these studies, the effect of castration on miR-125b serum expression was evaluated in mice, simulating androgen deprivation. Furthermore, miR-125b expression was measured by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) in LNCaP prostate cancer cells treated with the antiandrogen bicalutamide. Using LNCaP cells, the effect of miR-125b modulation on apoptotic protein and NCOR2, a co-repressor of androgen receptor (AR), was examined by Western blot. A 3'-untranslated region (UTR) luciferase-binding assay was performed to confirm that miR-125b targets NCOR2. We found that surgical castration induced an initial increase in the expression of circulating miR-125b in mice, while sham surgery did not. In addition, AR blockade via bicalutamide was associated with the rapid release of miR-125b into the cell culture medium of prostate cancer cells. A previously studied target of miR-125b, a regulator in the apoptotic pathway, BAK1, could not completely account for the role of miR-125b in prostate cancer. Thus, we looked for additional targets of miR-125b and found that NCOR2, which is a repressor of AR, is a direct target of miR-125b. We found that NCOR2 protein expression was blocked by mimics of miR-125b, and a luciferase-binding assay confirmed that NCOR2 is a direct target of miR-125b. Our data provide novel evidence that miR-125b is an important regulator of the AR with specific ramification for the effectiveness of antiandrogens and other hormonal therapies in prostate cancer.

Previous gene array data from our laboratory identified the retinoic acid (RA) biosynthesis enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase 1A3 (ALDH1A3) as a putative androgen-responsive gene in human prostate cancer epithelial (LNCaP) cells. In the present study, we attempted to identify if any of the three ALDH1A/RA synthesis enzymes are androgen responsive and how this may affect retinoid-mediated effects in LNCaP cells. We demonstrated that exposure of LNCaP cells to the androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT) results in a 4-fold increase in ALDH1A3 mRNA levels compared with the untreated control. The mRNA for two other ALDH1A family members, ALDH1A1 and ALDH1A2, were not detected and not induced by DHT in LNCaP cells. Inhibition of androgen receptor (AR) with both the antiandrogen bicalutamide and small interfering RNA for AR support that ALDH1A3 regulation by DHT is mediated by AR. Furthermore, specific inhibition of the extracellular signal-regulated kinase and Src family of kinases with PD98059 and PP1 supports that AR's regulation of ALDH1A3 occurs by the typical AR nuclear-translocation cascade. Consistent with an increase in ALDH1A3 mRNA, DHT-treated LNCaP cells showed an 8-fold increase in retinaldehyde-dependent NAD(+) reduction compared with control. Lastly, treatment of LNCaP with all-trans retinal (RAL) in the presence of DHT resulted in significant up-regulation of the RA-inducible, RA-metabolizing enzyme CYP26A1 mRNA compared with RAL treatment alone. Taken together, these data suggest that (i) the RA biosynthesis enzyme ALDH1A3 is androgen responsive and (ii) DHT up-regulation of ALDH1A3 can increase the oxidation of retinal to RA and indirectly affect RA bioactivity and metabolism.

casodex user reviews 2017-03-01

We have used the chromatin immunoprecipitation technique to analyze the formation of the androgen receptor (AR) transcription complex onto prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and kallikrein 2 promoters in LNCaP cells. Our results show that loading of holo-AR and recruitment of RNA polymerase II to the promoters occur transiently. The cyclic nature of AR transcription complex assembly is also illustrated by transient association of coactivators GRIP1 and CREB-binding protein and acetylated histone H3 with the PSA promoter. Treatment of cells with the pure antiandrogen bicalutamide also elicits occupancy of the promoter by AR. In contrast to the agonist-liganded AR, bicalutamide-bound buy casodex receptor is not capable of recruiting polymerase II, GRIP1, or CREB-binding protein, indicating that the conformation of AR bound to anti-androgen is not competent to assemble transcription complexes. Proteasome is involved in the regulation of AR-dependent transcription, as a proteasome inhibitor, MG-132, prevents the release of the receptor from the PSA promoter, and it also blocks the androgen-induced PSA mRNA accumulation. Furthermore, occupancy of the PSA promoter by the 19 S proteasome subcomplex parallels that by AR. Collectively, formation of the AR transcription complex, encompassing AR, polymerase II, and coactivators, on a regulated promoter is a cyclic process involving proteasome function.

Pure androgen receptor (AR) full antagonists are candidates to treat anti-androgen refractory prostate cancers. We previously developed a carborane-containing AR antagonist, 3-(12-hydroxymethyl-1,12-dicarba-closo-dodecaborane-1-yl)benzonitrile (BA341), which was more potent than hydroxyflutamide (4) but acted as an agonist toward LNCaP prostate buy casodex cancer cells expressing T877A AR mutant. Here, we designed and synthesized novel AR full antagonists structurally based upon the clinically used AR full antagonist (R)-bicalutamide (5) to test our hypothesis that the carborane cage is suitable as a hydrophobic pharmacophore for AR ligands. Compounds 7b and 8b showed good biological profiles in AR binding and transactivation assays and dose-dependently inhibited the testosterone-induced proliferation of LNCaP cells, as well as SC-3 cells. The IC(50) values of compounds 7b and 8b were 3.8 x 10(-7) and 4.2 x 10(-7) M, respectively [5, 8.7 x 10(-7) M]. Since compounds 7b and 8b did not show any agonistic activity in functional assays, they seem to be pure AR full antagonists and are therefore candidates for treatment of anti-androgen withdrawal syndrome.

CYP3A5 siRNA blocked growth of LNCaP and C4-2 cells by 30-60% (P ≤ 0.005). Azamulin, a CYP3A pharmacologic inhibitor, reduced the growth of LNCaP, C4-2 and 22RV1 lines by ∼ 40% (P ≤ 0.005). CYP3A5 siRNA inhibited growth in response to DHT and R1881 treatment in LNCaP and C4-2 by decreasing nuclear AR localization and resulting in diminished PSA and TMPRSS2 expression. Decreased AR nuclear localization resulting from CYP3A5 inhibition resulted in growth inhibition comparable to IC60 and IC40 of bicalutamide in LNCaP and C4-2 buy casodex cell lines. Conversely, the CYP3A inducer rifampicin enhanced AR nuclear localization.

Between March 22, 2011, and July 11, 2013, 375 patients were randomly assigned, 184 to enzalutamide and 191 to bicalutamide. 126 (68%) and 168 (88%) patients, respectively, discontinued their assigned treatment before study end, mainly due to progressive disease. Median follow-up time was 20·0 months (IQR 15·0-25·6) in the enzalutamide group and 16·7 months (10·2-21·9) in the bicalutamide group. Patients in the enzalutamide group had significantly improved median progression-free survival (15·7 months [95% buy casodex CI 11·5-19·4]) compared with patients in the bicalutamide group (5·8 months [4·8-8·1]; hazard ratio 0·44 [95% CI 0·34-0·57]; p<0·0001). Of the most common adverse events, those occurring more frequently with enzalutamide than with bicalutamide were fatigue (51 [28%] of 183 patients in the enzalutamide group vs 38 [20%] of 189 in the bicalutamide group), back pain (35 [19%] vs 34 [18%]), and hot flush (27 [15%] vs 21 [11%]); those occurring more frequently with bicalutamide were nausea (26 [14%] vs 33 [17%]), constipation (23 [13%] vs 25 [13%]), and arthralgia (18 [10%] vs 30 [16%]). The most common grade 3 or worse adverse events in the enzalutamide or bicalutamide treatment groups, respectively, were hypertension (13 [7%] vs eight [4%]), hydronephrosis (three [2%] vs seven [4%]), back pain (five [3%] vs three [2%]), pathological fracture (five [3%] vs two [1%]), dyspnoea (four [2%] vs one [1%]), bone pain (one [1%] vs four [2%]), congestive cardiac failure (four [2%] vs two [1%]), myocardial infarction (five [3%] vs none), and anaemia (four [2%] vs none]). Serious adverse events were reported by 57 (31%) of 183 patients and 44 (23%) of 189 patients in the enzalutamide and bicalutamide groups, respectively.

Recent reports suggest that the beta-catenin-T-cell factor (Tcf) (BCT) signaling pathway is important in the progression of prostate cancer. Evidence suggests that the androgen receptor (AR) can repress BCT-mediated transcription both in prostate cancer and colon cancer cells (Chesire and Isaacs, 2002). In this study, we validate such findings and show that repression of BCT signaling is facilitated by competition between the AR and Tcf. Measurements of the Tcf transcriptional reporter (TOPFLASH) indicated that AR+DHT-mediated repression can inhibit BCT transcription in the presence of WT and exogenous activating beta-catenin (Delta1-130 bp). Transient transfections in SW480 cells (APC(mut/mut)) showed that this mode of repression is functionally independent of APC Cipro Dosage Sinusitis -mediated beta-catenin ubiquitination. Using a recently developed red flourescent protein (HcRed), we demonstrate novel observations about the nuclear distribution of Tcf. Furthermore, with the use of red (HcRed-AR and HcRed-Tcf) and green fusion proteins (beta-catenin-EGFP), we provide morphological evidence of a reciprocal balance of nuclear beta-catenin-EGFP (BC-EGFP). By cotransfecting in LNCaP prostate tumor cells and using quantitative imaging software, we demonstrated a 62.0% colocalization of HcRed-AR and BC-EGFP in the presence of DHT and 63.3% colocalization of HcRed-Tcf/BC-EGFP in the absence of DHT. Costaining for activated RNA Pol II (phosphoserine 2) and HcRed-Tcf suggested that Tcf foci contain transcriptional 'hotspots' validating that these sites have the capacity for transcriptional activity. Given this apparent androgen-dependent competition for nuclear BC-EGFP, we chose to assess our hypothesis by in vivo and in vitro binding assays. SW480 cells transiently transfected with an AR expression construct, treated with DHT and immunoprecipitated for Tcf showed less associated beta-catenin when compared to Tcf precipitates from untreated cells. Furthermore, by treating cells with DHT+Casodex, we were able to abrogate the androgen-sensitive AR/beta-catenin interaction, in addition to relieving transcriptional repression of the TOPFLASH reporter. In vitro binding assays, with increasing amounts of AR(S35), resulted in decreased Tcf(S35) association with immunoprecipitated recombinant beta-catenin-HIS. These data suggest that in steady-state conditions, AR has the ability to compete out Tcf binding for beta-catenin. Finally, using SW480 cells, we show that AR-mediated repression of the BCT pathway has implications for cell cycle progression and in vitro growth. Using FACs analysis, we observed a 26.1% increase in accumulation of cells in the G1 phase of the cell cycle, while in vitro growth assays showed a 35% reduction in viable cells transfected with AR+DHT treatment. Together, our data strongly suggest that a reciprocal balance of nuclear beta-catenin facilitates AR-mediated repression of BCT-driven transcription and cell growth.

BACKGROUND: The optimal treatment for early prostate cancer has yet to be established. A well-tolerated hormonal therapy such as bicalutamide could be a useful treatment option in this setting, either as adjuvant or immediate therapy. A major collaborative clinical trials program was set up to investigate bicalutamide as a treatment option for local prostate cancer (localized or locally advanced disease). METHODS: The bicalutamide Early Prostate Cancer program comprises three randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of similar design that are being conducted in distinct geographical areas (North America; Australia, Europe, Israel, South Africa and Mexico; and Scandinavia). Men with T1b-4N0-1M0 (TNM 1997) prostate cancer have been randomized on a 1:1 basis to receive bicalutamide 150 mg daily or placebo. Recruitment to the program closed in July 1998, and follow-up is ongoing. Study endpoints include time to clinical progression, overall survival and tolerability. RESULTS: 8113 men aged 38 to 93 years (mean 66.9) were randomized over a 3-year period. 67.4% of the enrolled patients had localized disease (T1-2) and 66.4% had a Gleason score Diovan Recommended Dosage two randomized groups are well balanced. CONCLUSION: This is the largest randomized clinical trial program to date in local prostate cancer and is expected to provide critical information on the role of bicalutamide as an addition to standard care for patients with local prostate cancer who have received a therapy of curative intent or are candidates for watchful waiting.

Ductal adenocarcinoma often involves the central ducts of the gland and may present as an exophytic papillary lesion in the prostatic Vermox Single Dose urethra. This is why it usually presents with refractory symptoms. The outcome for men with prostatic ductal adenocarcinoma is, in most studies, worse than the outcome for men with prostatic acinar adenocarcinoma. Aggressive management is indicated, even with low-volume metastatic disease.

It has been noticed that crosstalk between androgen receptor (AR) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathways plays a crucial role in the proliferation of prostate cancer cells. To clarify this mechanism, we focused on DEPTOR, a naturally occurring inhibitor of mTOR. The treatment of a human AR-positive prostate cancer cell line, LNCaP, with the AR-agonist dihydrotestosterone (DHT) repressed DEPTOR mRNA expression in a time-dependent manner. This repression was abrogated by treatment with the AR-antagonist bicalutamide. Knockdown of DEPTOR mRNA by siRNA resulted in the increased phosphorylation of 70 kDa ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (S6K), a substrate of mTORC1, accompanied by the elevated expression of cyclin D1, a positive regulator of cell proliferation. Furthermore, the ChIP assay demonstrated that AR could bind to AR-responsible element Propecia Drug -like region within the 4th intron of the DEPTOR gene. The amount of acetylated histone H3 (Lys9, Lys14) was reduced by the DHT treatment in this region. Taken together, these results propose that AR-dependent prostate cancer cell proliferation requires decreased DEPTOR transcription directly controlled by AR.
