Tech Sheet on Dutasteride

Tech Sheet on Dutasteride

Dutasteride inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is the androgen primarily responsible for the prostate gland's initial development and subsequent enlargement. Testosterone is converted to DHT by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which exists as 2- isoforms, type 1 and type 2. The type 2 isoenzyme is primarily active in the reproductive tissues, while the type 1 isoenzyme is also responsible for testosterone conversion in the skin and liver [1].

Dutasteride is indicated for treating symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). When combined with the alpha-adrenergic antagonist, tamsulosin is indicated for treating symptomatic BPH in men with an enlarged prostate [1]. Furthermore, Dutasteride is also approved for treating male androgenic alopecia in South Korea and Japan at a dose of 0.5mg/ day [2].
