What Is Nubeqa (Darolutamide)?

Darolutamide (pronounced [DAR oh LOO ta mide]) is also known by the brand name, Nubeqa.

It is a type of chemotherapy and an antineoplastic (anticancer) drug that belongs to a class called antiandrogens. It works by counteracting the effects of testosterone, the primary sex hormone produced by males.

What Is Chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment in which certain drugs are used to kill cancerous cells. These drugs are usually cytotoxic chemical substances that are toxic to the cells, restrict their growth, prevent their division, and ultimately kill the cells.

How Is Nubeqa Used?

Nubeqa has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a first-line agent to treat prostate cancer. When used in conjunction with other treatments, Nubeqa can help to slow the growth of tumors and prevent them from spreading to other parts of the body. Using this drug, men in certain stages of the disease can remain symptom-free for longer periods of time.

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests can be used to determine how well Nubeqa is treating the cancer. Nubeqa is most commonly used in conjunction with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analog to help the body inhibit the production of certain hormones (like testosterone). Some of the common GnRH analogs are histrelin (Vantas), triptorelin (Trelstar), goserelin (Zoladex), and leuprolide (Lupron Depot).

Available Formulations

Nubeqa is only available as tablets and must be administered orally. The tablets are only available in 300 mg strength. The tablets are oval-shaped, white, and marked with “300” on one side and “BAYER” on the other side. Nubeqa is typically dosed twice a day, and the dose is dependent on the cancer type and severity. Verify the correct dose and frequency with your provider.
