In brief: Xtandi and Zytiga (abiraterone acetate)

There are 2 new anti androgens available Xtandi and Zytiga (abiraterone acetate).
Xtandi works at 3 places as testosterone enters cancer cells. Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) needs to be taken with Prednisone to prevent side effects. Both work well and usually help for 1-2 years and have been shown to delay the need for chemotherapy.
