Proxalutamide (developmental code name GT-0918) is a nonsteroidal antiandrogen (NSAA) – specifically, a selective high-affinity silent antagonist of the androgen receptor (AR) – which is under development by Suzhou Kintor Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of prostate cancer.[1][2][3] It inhibits AR-mediated gene transcription more potently than bicalutamide (by ~5- to 10-fold) and enzalutamide (by 2- to 5-fold) and maintains silent antagonism in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) cells.[2] It has also been found to downregulate the AR, which could further confer it greater efficacy against CRPC compared to existing NSAAs.[2] Unlike enzalutamide, the drug showed low central nervous system distribution and no induction of seizures in animals.[4][2][3] As of 2017, it is in phase II clinical trials for prostate cancer.[1] It is also in preclinical investigation for the treatment of AR-positive breast cancer.[1][2][3]
