2. How To Cytomid 250mg Work?

Cytomid tablets 250mg contain flutamide, a non-steroidal anti-androgen, which acts as a testosterone analogue as it is similar in structure to testosterone and binds to the same receptor in prostate cells but without activating any normal testosterone actions. Prostate cancer is a testosterone-dependent tumour, which means that it needs testosterone to grow.

Testosterone is an androgen or male hormone that is produced in the testes and is responsible for the secondary sexual characteristics, such as facial hair and increased muscle mass; it is also required for the prostate gland to function normally. Flutamide in Cytomid 250 binds to the androgen receptor in prostate cancer cells, which blocks the stimulation by testosterone of cancer cell growth and helps slow or prevent progression of the tumour.
