RU 58841 is a specific androgen receptor antagonist or anti-androgen used as a topical treatment for acne, androgenetic alopecia and hirsutism. RU 58841 displays high affinity for the hamster prostate and flank organ (F.O.) androgen receptors. In vivo, when topically applied, it exerts a potent dose-dependent regression of F.O. area at a dose as low as 1 microgram/animal while being devoid of antiandrogenic activity on deep accessory sex organs and of any effect on testosterone level up to 100 micrograms/animal. RU 58841 has a dramatic effect on hair regrowth.

|Method||Western immunoblot analysis|
|Cell Lines||Human prostate cancer DU145 cells|
|Incubation Time||30 min|
|Results||In contrast, genistein, RU486, and RU58841 had only marginal agonist activity (within 4-fold).|
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|Animal A Km|
For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
