    Wake up dead thread.

    I have been running a hormone profile thread under the sources thread for the company I rep for. It hasn’t had the activity I would like to I am posting it here to see how it goes.
    This Pro hormone brought Mark McGuire a head headache.

    (none) 4-androsten-3, 17-dione
    Formula: Cl9Hz60z MW: 286
    Androstenedione, known popularly as Andro, was the first "prohormone" to be put on the market. It
    has little androgen receptor binding affinity and undergoes conversion to testosterone via 17BHSD.
    Androstenedione is normally produced by the testes and adrenals at a rate of about 3.2 mg/day and
    circulates at a concentration of about 5.4 nmol/L • Of this, only about 7.5% circulates in a free,
    unbound state with 6.6% bound to SH BG and 85% bound to albumin. Only about 7% of the androstenedione produced in the body is converted to testosterone while 1.7% is converted to
    estrone • Estrone is a weaker estrogen than estradiol, but can be directly converted to estradiol as
    well. Soon after it was put onto the market, people began to realize that androstenedione was not very anabolic and tended to produce unwanted side effects (such as gynecomastia) quite easily most likely due to its high affinity for albumin and the fact that high doses were necessary to see any anabolic effect. Androstenedione is known to be a fairly potent aromatase inhibitor but either because it was metabolized quickly or some other reason; it still produced significant estrogenic side effects. Andro could be metabolized to more potent androgenic 5-alpha reduced metabolites and as such, could produce side effects such as acne, hair loss, prostate enlargement and others. Andro was targeted by the media after Mark Macguire admitted to using it during the time when he broke the home-run record. Andro was removed from the market as a consequence of this attention but other products were quickly produced to fill the vacuum. It has been theorized that one could use androstenedione with testosterone to interfere with 17-beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase to to decrease the metabolism oftestosterone.ANABOLIC PHARMACOLOGY

    I bet you guys haven’t heard of this one!

    Androgenic 30-60
    Anabolic 20-60
    Standard Testosterone propionate
    Chemical Name 17-alpha-methylandrost-5-ene-3,17-beta-diol
    Estrogenic Activity low to moderate
    Progestational Activity no data available (low)

    Methylandrostenediol (methandriol for short) is an anabolic steroid derived from dihydrotestosterone. The drug itself is manufactured in two very distinct forms. The first is unesterified (straight) methylandrostenediol, which is used when making an oral medication with this steroid (although an injectable once existed in the U.S.). It is also found as esterified methylandrostenediol dipropionate, which is prepared as an injectable. The added propionate esters in the injectable form extend the activity of the drug for several days. Basically, methandriol drugs are altered c17-alkylated forms of 5-androstenediol. Methandriol is classified as a weak anabolic with weak androgenic properties. It also seems to display some level of estrogenic activity, making this steroid less ideal for dieting. The drug is generally considered too mild, and is not widely popular among bodybuilders and athletes. Sometimes, however, it is used in place of other anabolic/androgenic agents in bulking stacks when available.

    Methandriol was first described in 1935,533making this a very old agent as far as synthetic anabolic steroids are concerned. Methylandrostendiol was developed into a medicine by Organon, which sold it in the United States under the Stenediol brand name in both oral (methylandrostenediol) and injectable (methylandrostendiol dipropionate) forms. Many other generics and other brands of methylandrostenediol soon followed, and the drug was a popular anabolic agent in the United States during the 1950’s. Methandriol was essentially the first steroid perceived to have a notable separation of anabolic (higher) and androgenic (lower) effect, a persistent goal of pharmaceutical developers. Early product literature described it as, “a steroid which has considerable of the male hormone’s tissue-building action without to the same extent causing virilization.”534 It was indicated for use as a, “tissue-builder in cases of retarded growth or failure to gain weight accompanied by protein wastage, negative nitrogen balance, or failure to build body proteins.”
    Early assessments of methandriol being primarily anabolic in nature did not hold up well with later extensive use in humans. It was eventually determined that in doses sufficient to promote weight gain, its anabolic properties were accompanied by significant androgenic activity. Ultimately, this drug would be viewed as one of balanced anabolic and androgenic action, not as a highly anabolic agent as originally thought. Organon would go on to develop more effective anabolic agents, such as their 19-nor series of drugs including Durabolin, Deca-Durabolin, and Maxibolin, and eventually discontinued the Stenediol products. The other U.S. brand and generic forms of the drug would follow as well, although methylandrostenediol would persist in the U.S. scene for some time. Currently, no domestic source of the drug exists, although it is still found in certain international markets. It seems most prominent in Australia at the present time, where it remains included in a number of veterinary anabolic steroid products.
    How Supplied:

    Methandriol is available in select human and veterinary drug markets. Composition and dosage may vary by country and manufacturer.

    Structural Characteristics:

    Methylandrostendiol is a modified form of dihydrotestosterone. It differs by: 1) the addition of a methyl group at carbon 17-alpha to protect the hormone during oral administration and 2) the introduction of a double bond between carbons 5 and 6, which seems to increase the anabolic strength of the steroid (partly by making it resistant to metabolism by 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in skeletal muscle tissue). Methylandrostenediol dipropionate contains methylandrostenediol modified with the addition of 2 carboxylic acid esters (propionic acid) at the 3-beta and 17-beta hydroxyl groups, which delay the release of free methylandrostenediol from the site of injection (depot).
    Side Effects (Estrogenic):

    Methandriol is not directly aromatized by the body, although one of its known metabolites is methyltestosterone, which can aromatize. Methlyandrostenediol is also believed to have some inherent estrogenic activity. It is, likewise, considered a weakly to moderately estrogenic steroid. Gynecomastia is possible during treatment, but generally only when higher doses are used. Water and fat retention can also become issues, again depending on dose. Sensitive individuals may need to addition an anti-estrogen such as Nolvadex® to minimize related side effects.
    Side Effects (Androgenic):

    Although often classified as an anabolic steroid, methylandrostenediol is sufficiently androgenic. Androgenic side effects are common with this substance. This may include bouts of oily skin, acne, and body/facial hair growth. Anabolic/androgenic steroids may also aggravate male pattern hair loss. Women are warned of the potential virilizing effects of anabolic/androgenic steroids. These may include a deepening of the voice, menstrual irregularities, changes in skin texture, facial hair growth, and clitoral enlargement. Note that methylandrostenediol is not affected by 5-alpha reductase, so the relative androgenicity of this steroid is not affected by the concurrent use of finasteride or dutasteride.
    Side Effects (Hepatotoxicity):

    Methandriol is a c17-alpha alkylated compound. This alteration protects the drug from deactivation by the liver, allowing a very high percentage of the drug entry into the bloodstream following oral administration. C17-alpha alkylated anabolic/androgenic steroids can be hepatotoxic. Prolonged or high exposure may result in liver damage. In rare instances life-threatening dysfunction may develop. It is advisable to visit a physician periodically during each cycle to monitor liver function and overall health. Intake of c17-alpha alkylated steroids is commonly limited to 6-8 weeks, in an effort to avoid escalating liver strain. Injectable forms of the drug may present slightly less strain on the liver by avoiding the first pass metabolism of oral dosing, although may still present substantial hepatotoxicity.
    The use of a liver detoxification supplement such as Liver Stabil, Liv-52, or Essentiale Forte is advised while taking any hepatotoxic anabolic/androgenic steroids.
    Side Effects (Cardiovascular):

    Anabolic/androgenic steroids can have deleterious effects on serum cholesterol. This includes a tendency to reduce HDL (good) cholesterol values and increase LDL (bad) cholesterol values, which may shift the HDL to LDL balance in a direction that favors greater risk of arteriosclerosis. The relative impact of an anabolic/androgenic steroid on serum lipids is dependant on the dose, route of administration (oral vs. injectable), type of steroid (aromatizable or non-aromatizable), and level of resistance to hepatic metabolism. Methylandrostenediol has a strong effect on the hepatic management of cholesterol due to its structural resistance to liver breakdown and (with the oral) route of administration. Anabolic/androgenic steroids may also adversely affect blood pressure and triglycerides, reduce endothelial relaxation, and support left ventricular hypertrophy, all potentially increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease and myocardial infarction.
    To help reduce cardiovascular strain it is advised to maintain an active cardiovascular exercise program and minimize the intake of saturated fats, cholesterol, and simple carbohydrates at all times during active AAS administration. Supplementing with fish oils (4 grams per day) and a natural cholesterol/antioxidant formula such as Lipid Stabil or a product with comparable ingredients is also recommended.
    Side Effects (Testosterone Suppression):

    All anabolic/androgenic steroids when taken in doses sufficient to promote muscle gain are expected to suppress endogenous testosterone production. Without the intervention of testosterone-stimulating substances, testosterone levels should return to normal within 1-4 months of drug secession. Note that prolonged hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism can develop secondary to steroid abuse, necessitating medical intervention.
    The above side effects are not inclusive. For more detailed discussion of potential side effects, see the Steroid Side Effects page.
    Administration (General):

    Studies have shown that taking an oral anabolic steroid with food may decrease its bioavailability. This is caused by the fat-soluble nature of steroid hormones, which can allow some of the drug to dissolve with undigested dietary fat, reducing its absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. For maximum utilization, oral forms of this steroid should be taken on an empty stomach.
    Administration (Men):

    Early prescribing guidelines for Stenediol recommend a dosage of 25 mg given 2 to 5 times per week by oral, buccal, or intramuscular route. For physique- or performance-enhancing purposes, a typical dosage is in the range of 25-50 mg daily for the oral form, and 200-400 mg per week with the injectable. In order to keep blood levels more even with the injectable, it is generally administered once every three to four days. Cycles generally last for no more than 6 to 8 weeks, in an effort to minimize hepatotoxicity and strain on the liver and cholesterol values. This level of use is sufficient for moderate gains in muscle size and strength, which may be accompanied by a low level of water retention.
    While it may be possible to use methylandrostenediol alone for muscle-building purposes, it is most often combined with other anabolics for a stronger effect. Combined with Deca-Durabolin® or Equipoise®, for example, measurable gains of hard muscle mass, without an extreme level of water retention, may be noticed. This is the general composition of most Australian vet blends that include methylandrostenediol. When looking for a more pronounced gain in mass, a stronger androgen such as testosterone may be added. The resulting growth can be quite exceptional, but the user will also have to deal with a much stronger set of estrogenic side effects. The drug sometimes also combines well with non-aromatizing anabolics such as Winstrol®, Primobolan®, or oxandrolone. The result here should be a more pronounced effect on muscle hardness, with a moderate gain of solid lean tissue.
    Administration (Women):

    Early prescribing guidelines for Stenediol recommend a dosage of 25 mg given 2 to 5 times per week by oral, buccal, or intramuscular route. Methylandrostenediol is generally not recommended for women for physique- or performance-enhancing purposes due to its androgenic nature and tendency to produce virilizing side effects.

    Pharmaceutical preparations containing Methandriol remain scarce. The only place where this steroid is still produced in an volume is Australia, where a few veterinary preparations include methandriol in their blends. These products are rarely traded in international commerce due to tight controls on anabolic steroids in that country.
