Calutide (Bicalutamide Tablets) used

Calutide (Bicalutamide Tablets) 50mg are used to treat prostate cancer which is in an advanced stage. Calutide 50 is used in combination with another medication, a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist that induces medical castration, which means that testosterone is no longer produced by the testes and this helps in the treatment of prostate cancer. Alternatively, Calutide tablets 50mg are used in combination with surgical castration. Calutide tablets 50mg may be used to prevent disease flare associated with the use of LHRH agonist therapy, which is when large amounts of testosterone are suddenly produced in response to LHRH, before its production is switched off, and may be painful or harmful in advanced prostate cancer which has become metastatic (spread to other sites outside the prostate).

Calutide (Bicalutamide Tablets) work

Calutide tablets 50mg contain bicalutamide, an anti-androgen used to treat prostate cancer that is in an advanced stage. Prostate cancer is a testosterone-dependent tumour, which means that it needs testosterone to grow. Testosterone is an androgen or male hormone that is produced in the testes and is responsible for the secondary sexual characteristics, such as facial hair and increased muscle mass; it is also required for the prostate gland to function normally. Bicalutamide in Calutide 50 acts as a testosterone analogue, as it is similar in structure to testosterone, and binds to the same receptor in prostate cells but without activating any normal testosterone actions. When bicalutamide binds to the androgen receptor in prostate cancer cells, it blocks the stimulation by testosterone of cancer cell growth and helps slow or prevent progression of the tumour. Treatment with Calutide 50 is usually in combination with another medication, a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist that induces medical castration, which means that testosterone is no longer produced by the testes and this helps in the treatment of prostate cancer. Alternatively, Calutide tablets 50mg are used in combination with surgical castration. Calutide tablets 50mg are also used to prevent disease flare associated with the use of LHRH agonist therapy, which is when large amounts of testosterone are suddenly produced in response to LHRH, before its production is switched off, and may be painful or harmful in advanced prostate cancer which has become metastatic (spread to other sites outside the prostate).
