The 3-(4-cyano-3-trifluoromethylphenyl)-5,5-dimethylthiohydantoin derivatives which have carboxy-terminal side chains were synthesized and their agonistic/antagonistic activities against androgen receptor (AR) measured. Among them, compound 13b showed antagonistic activity (IC_<50>=130nm) with no agonistic activity even at 10000nm. This compound exhibited significant metabolic stability and oral antiandrogenic activity (ED_<50>=7mg/kg).
