Zecyte


“Zecyte” contains the Drug / Molecule called “Abiraterone”. Zecyte belongs to the general class of drugs known as hormones or hormone antagonists. Zecyte works by blocking an enzyme called CYP17. This enzyme normally helps certain cells in the body make male hormones called androgens, such as testosterone. Since prostate cancer usually depends on androgens to help it grow and spread, this helps stop it from growing.


Indication

Zecyte is used in combination with prednisone, a corticosteroid to treat metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer and in the treatment of metastatic high-risk castration-sensitive prostate cancer.

Note
