Introduction

Finasteride, a competitive inhibitor of steroid Type II 5α reductase, an intracellular enzyme that converts the androgen testosterone into 5α dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Finasteride is a competitive and specific inhibitor of Type II 5α reductase, an intracellular enzyme that converts the androgen testosterone into DHT. Finasteride has no affinity for the androgen receptor and has no androgenic or antiandrogenic effects. Inhibition of Type II 5α reductase blocks the conversion of testosterone to DHT, resulting in significant decreases in serum and tissue DHT concentrations. In men with male pattern hair loss, the balding scalp contains miniaturised hair follicles and increased amounts of DHT compared with hairy scalp. Administration of Finasteride decreases scalp and serum DHT concentrations in these men.

Alopec Precaution
