Also known as Nilandron
Nilutamide is an antiandrogen medication used in the treatment of advanced-stage prostate cancer. Nilutamide blocks the androgen receptor, preventing its interaction with testosterone. Because most prostate cancer cells rely on the stimulation of the androgen receptor for growth and survival, nilutamide can prolong life in men with prostate cancer. Nilutamide is marketed under the name Nilandron in the United States and under the name Anandron in Canada.Source: Wikipedia
