Abstract

The 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor, finasteride, provides a logical medical treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). However, the effects of chronic finasteride treatment on prostatic androgen levels, 5 alpha-reductase activity and tissue prostatic specific antigen (PSA) have not been studied. We have examined prostate tissue androgen concentrations and 5 alpha-reductase activity of the gland in men with BPH treated with the drug for 3 months.
