RU-58841 is an experimental drug candidate which is intended for use as a topical treatment for acne, androgenetic alopecia, and hirsutism.[1][2] The compound is similar in structure to RU-58642 but contains a different side-chain.[3] These compounds are non-steroidal anti-androgen drugs similar to nilutamide,[4] which is related to flutamide, bicalutamide, and enzalutamide. RU58841 can be synthesized either by building the hydantoin moiety or by aryl coupling to 5,5-dimethylhydantoin [5]
