Abstract

A large number of compounds of steroid origin with variable androgenic activity have been described since Butenandt and Tscherning (1) first isolated androsterone in 1934. Later following the nitrogen balance experiments of Kochakian (2) with the more active androgen, testosterone, an anabolic activity was recognized as a closely asociated property of androgens. Moreover this anabolic activity in some of the newer steroid androgens has now been found to deviate independently from their androgenic activity (3) (4). These developments are of great interest not only in the production of more efficient gains in animal nutrition but also in the maintenance of a balance between sex hormones when stilbestrol is fed and of positive nitrogen balance in known hormone deficiencies of the aged (4) (5) (6).
