Bexlosteride is a potent and noncompetitive inhibitor of the enzyme 5α-reductase related to finasteride and dutasteride.[1][2] It is selective for the type I isoform of the enzyme.[1] It advanced to Phase III clinical trials, but development was halted at that stage, and it was never marketed.[3][4]
