ORGOVYX is the only oral androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for prostate cancer.
Orgovyx is a pill, not an injection. It was shown to lower testosterone and PSA levels* in adults with advanced prostate cancer. It's important to remember that lowering testosterone is one of the main ways to help manage advanced prostate cancer.
* Even though it wasn’t the main focus of the clinical trial, PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels were monitored. Because the clinical trial included many different types of patients, the results of PSA monitoring should be interpreted with caution. No evidence has shown that the speed of PSA decline is related to a clinical benefit.
After 15 days of treatment, 99% of men taking ORGOVYX lowered their testosterone levels to below 50 ng/dL in the clinical trial and 12% of men receiving leuprolide injections lowered their testosterone levels to below 50 ng/dL.
The lowdown on how ORGOVYX works
Lowering testosterone is one of the main ways to treat advanced prostate cancer. ORGOVYX works to lower the amount of testosterone your body makes. As a result, this helps lower the amount of testosterone in your body.
Imagine the body makes testosterone the way that water comes out of a faucet.
Without treatment, the faucet is turned on and the testosterone flows freely.
With ORGOVYX, the faucet is almost turned off and the flow of testosterone is slowed. This means there is less testosterone.
