Drug Names(s): Cosudex, bicalutamide

Description: Casodex (bicalutamide) is an oral non-steroidal anti-androgen for prostate cancer. Casodex competes with the androgens, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and testosterone, for androgen receptor binding sites in the prostate cell. Since androgens normally regulate prostate cell growth and function, blockade of androgen action leads to apoptosis of hormone-sensitive cancer cells.
