Background: Dutasteride is a dual inhibitor of type I and type II 5alpha-reductases and provides nearly complete suppression of dihydrotestosterone, which plays a key role in the aetiology and development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Most knowledge about the efficacy and safety of dutasteride in BPH derives from three pivotal phase III studies conducted primarily in Caucasian populations...

Clinical Trials Related to Avodart (Dutasteride)
Study Assessing The Efficacy And Safety Of Avodart (Dutasteride) At Improving Urinary Symptoms In Men With Prostate Cancer Who Are Undergoing Seed Implantation [Completed]
Avodart (dutasteride) reduces the male hormone (DHT) that leads to prostate growth and stimulates cancerous growth. Avodart is currently approved by the FDA to treat men with symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Avodart works by reducing DHT and prostate size; therefore, the drug may be useful in improving lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) such as frequency, urgency, weak stream, and urination difficulty (dysuria), among others, in men with prostate cancer. Avodart may be effective in men with prostate cancer who are being treated with hormonal therapy with one injection of Zolodex (goserelin) followed one month later with a trans-urethral incision of the prostate (TUIP), and three months after that, seed implantation (SI) of the prostate. The purpose of this study is to test whether Avodart (dutasteride) is effective on LUTS and dysuria in men with localized prostate cancer being treated with single-dose goserelin, TUIP, and interval SI.
Bioequivalence - Duodart Against Avodart & Omnic [Completed]
Open-label, randomized, single dose, two-treatment, two-way crossover study
Bioavailability of Two Combination Products of Dutasteride (0.5mg) and Tamsulosin Hydrochloride (0.2mg) in Asian Males. [Completed]
This study aims to determine the relative bioavailability of tamsulosin hydrochloride in a fixed dose combination capsule of dutasteride and tamsulosin hydrochloride (0. 5 patient mg/0. 2 mg) relative to co-administration of dutasteride 0. 5 mg capsules and tamsulosin hydrochloride 0. 2 mg tablets or capsules. Two fixed dose combination capsules will be tested; one will contain tamsulosin hydrochloride pellets with a 15% enteric coating, and the other tamsulosin hydrochloride pellets with a 10% enteric coat. In addition, two formulations of tamsulosin hydrochloride will be tested in the co-administration with dutasteride 0. 5 mg; a 0. 2 mg oral disintegrating tablet and a 0. 2 mg hard shell capsule. This will be an open-label, randomized, single dose, four-period crossover in healthy male subjects of North East Asian ancestry. Subjects will receive single oral doses in four treatment periods, each separated by a 5-10 day washout period. Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis will be taken at regular intervals after dosing. Safety will be assessed by measurement of blood pressure, heart rate and review of adverse events. The study will enrol approximately 30 healthy male subjects to ensure that 24 complete the study.
