Mechanism of action

Apalutamide belongs to group of a small molecule and androgen receptor (AR) antagonist with probably antineoplastic activity. Apalutamide joints to AR in target tissues thereby inhibiting androgen-induced receptor activation and promote the formation of inactive complexes that cannot be translocated to the nucleus. This prohibits binding to and transcription of AR-responsive genes. This basically inhibits the expression of genes whichcontrol prostate cancer cell multiplication and may cause to aprevention of cell growth in AR-expressing tumor cells.

Absorption: duration to peak plasma concentration is 2hr and peak plasma concentration is 6mcg/mL and 5.9mcg/mL and steady-state achieved is 4 weeks

Distribution: human plasma protein binding of Apalutamide is 96% and N-desmethyl Apalutamide

Metabolism: primarily the drug metabolized by CYP2C8 for the formation of N-desmethyl Apalutamide

Elimination: Apalutamide excreted via urine 65% and feces 24%
