If finasteride is based off of a tuber plant, what is dutasteride based off of? The same tuber?
As far as I know, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) developed dutasteride… but my knowledge of its origin pretty much ends there. I’m not familiar with their processes of discovery.
I do know that dutasteride works in similar ways to finasteride and is used to treat certain prostate problems. Dutasteride is not yet approved for the treatment of male pattern baldness, though.
