Anti-androgenic activity of various phthalimide analogs was evaluated based on inhibition of androgen-induced activation of nuclear androgen receptor (CAT assay) and on growth inhibition of the androgen-dependent clonal cell line SC-3. Some compounds showed very potent androgen-antagonistic activity.
