Xtandi is a cancer medicine used to treat men with prostate cancer.
It is used when the cancer is metastatic (has spread to other parts of the body), castration resistant (worsens despite treatment to lower production of testosterone or after surgical removal of the testes) and when either:
- treatment with docetaxel (a cancer medicine) has not worked or no longer works; or
- hormone therapy has not worked, and the patient has either no symptoms or mild symptoms and does not yet require chemotherapy (another type of cancer treatment).
Xtandi can also be used for castration-resistant prostate cancer that is not metastatic (has not yet spread) but is at high risk of doing so.
The medicine contains the active substance enzalutamide.
