Many breast cancer cells test positive for androgen receptors.

There are already several antiandrogen drugs on the market that are used regularly to treat prostate cancer.

Bicalutamide, apalutamide, and enzalutamide are three. There are a few others.

Researchers are looking into whether antiandrogens might also be effective in breast cancer treatment.

The drugs (pill form) already exist, so it might be a relatively easy addition for certain breast cancers.

Something to keep an eye on.
