Xtandi also referred to as Enzalutamide works by preventing the action of the male hormone, androgen. Xtandi antagonizes androgen receptors leading to a decrease in levels of prostate-specific antigen serum. It is used specifically for castration- resistant prostate cancer treatment. Xtandi can also be used to alleviate other conditions not mentioned here where it is deemed a viable option by a medical doctor. Xtandi is strictly a drug for men but due to its ability to cause deformity in unborn babies, birth control is advised for the period of the drug administration.
