Zytiga is prescribed to an individual suffering from advanced prostate cancer. Prostate cancer symptoms include trouble with urination, blood in the urine, erectile dysfunction, and others.
Prostate cancer latches on to androgens, which are produced by the CYP17 enzyme. Lowering the androgens can prevent prostate cancer from spreading. Zytiga is a CYP17 inhibitor that helps to block the enzyme and lowers the androgen levels in the individual.
