    • INFORMATION ON ZYTIGA By Lindsay Rosenwald
    • Introduction  A biotech investor, Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald has contributed to the development of several key tools in the fight against cancer. As the initial backer and co-founder of Cougar Biotechnology, Inc., Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald helped to rescue the cancer drug that eventually became Zytiga from obscurity and ushered it through its early clinical trials.
    • About Zytiga  Zytiga is used to treat prostate cancer that has proven resistant to testosterone-lowering treatments, including surgical intervention. When prescribed in conjunction with the drug prednisone, Zytiga has been shown to increase survival times and slow the progression of cancer. Zytiga has also allowed patients to wait significantly longer before starting chemotherapy.
    • Conclusion  The drug works by inhibiting the production of hormones known as androgens, which play a significant role in the development of prostate cancer. By reducing the production of androgens in two organs and at the site of the tumor itself, the drug helps to fight the growth of the cancer. Like other treatments, Zytiga can cause serious side effects. For complete information on the drug, visit Zytiga.com.
