How ERLEADA® works

 

ERLEADA® + ADT work together to lower androgens that can help fuel prostate cancer

When androgens attach to androgen receptors, they can help fuel prostate cancer cell growth

How androgens help fuel prostate cancer

  • Androgens are male hormones, primarily testosterone, that are needed for the prostate to function normally
  • However, when androgens attach to androgen receptors, they can help fuel prostate cancer cell growth

Androgen deprivation therapy lowers androgen levels

The goal of ADT is to lower androgen levels

  • Medical or surgical treatments that lower testosterone are also referred to as androgen deprivation therapy (ADT)
  • ADT includes treatment to suppress or block the production or action of male hormones called androgens

ERLEADA® blocks androgens from attaching to receptors

ERLEADA® + ADT fight prostate cancer together

  • ERLEADA® blocks androgens from attaching to receptors to help prevent cancer cells from growing
