Biological Activity

Non-steroidal and silent antiandrogen. Binds to androgen receptors and also inhibits androgen biosynthesis in vitro. In rats in vivo it inhibits androgen-induced prostate weight increase and inhibits negative androgen-dependent gonadotropin feedback leading to an increase in luteinising hormone and testosterone. Orally active.

Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 317.22. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.

Select a batch to recalculate based on the batch molecular weight:
Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass 1 mg 5 mg 10 mg
1 mM 3.15 mL 15.76 mL 31.52 mL
5 mM 0.63 mL 3.15 mL 6.3 mL
10 mM 0.32 mL 1.58 mL 3.15 mL
50 mM 0.06 mL 0.32 mL 0.63 mL
