Relugolix has been used in clinical trials studying the treatment of endometriosis, prostate cancer, uterine fibroids, and androgen deprivation treatment-naïve non-metastatic prostate cancer. Relugolix, a selective, non-peptide gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) or luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) antagonist competitively binds to and blocks the GnRH receptor in the anterior pituitary gland, which both prevents GnRH binding to the GnRH receptor and inhibits the secretion and release of both luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). In males, the inhibition of LH secretion prevents the release of testosterone from Leydig cells in the testes. Since testosterone is required to sustain prostate growth, reducing testosterone levels may inhibit hormone-dependent prostate cancer cell proliferation. In women, inhibition of GnRH decreases the release of gonadotropins and thereby decreases the down-stream production of estrogen and progesterone by the ovaries.
