Testosterone Congeners

Steroidal compounds related to TESTOSTERONE, the major mammalian male sex hormone. Testosterone congeners include important testosterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with androgenic activities.
DrugDrug NameDrug Indication
DB00624TestosteroneTo be used as hormone replacement or substitution of diminished or absent endogenous testosterone. Use in males: For management of congenital or acquired hypogonadism, hypogonadism associated with HIV infection, and male climacteric (andopause). Use in females: For palliative treatment of androgen-responsive, advanced, inoperable, metastatis (skeletal) carcinoma of the breast in women who are 1-5 years postmenopausal; testosterone esters may be used in combination with estrogens in the management of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms associated with menopause in women who do not respond to adequately to estrogen therapy alone.
DB00717NorethisteroneFor the treatment of secondary amenorrhea, endometriosis, and abnormal uterine bleeding due to hormonal imbalance in the absence of organic pathology, such as submucous fibroids or uterine cancer.
DB00984Nandrolone phenpropionateFor the treatment of refractory deficient red cell production anemias, breast carcinoma, hereditary angioedema, antithrombin III deficiency, fibrinogen excess, growth failure and Turner's syndrome. It is also indicated in the prophylaxis of hereditary angioedema.
DB01108TrilostaneUsed in the treatment of Cushing's syndrome. It is normally used in short-term treatment until permanent therapy is possible.
DB01420Testosterone PropionateTestosterone propionate is an anabolic steroid and a short ester form of testosterone that becomes active in the body. It is often used for muscle mass building.
DB0143419-norandrostenedioneThe claim that supplemental 19-norandrostenedione has anabolic effects is unsubstantiated.

DB01564CalusteroneAn anabolic steroid which can theoretically aid in restauration and buildup of certain tissues, especially muscle. It is similar to synthetic testosterone and is still in early investigation. It was also investigated for use as a treatment for metastatic breast cancer.
DB01708PrasteroneDHEA is taken as a supplement for a variety of unsubstantiated indications. The following indications have shown promise and are backed up by some scientific evidence: schizophrenia (DHEA may be more effective in women than men); improving the appearance of older people’s skin (taking DHEA by mouth seems to increase skin thickness and moisture, and decrease facial “age spots” in elderly men and women); improving ability to achieve an erection in men with sexual dysfunction. Additionally, DHEA has shown promise in improving symptoms of lupus (SLE). Taking DHEA by mouth along with conventional treatment may help reduce the number of times symptoms flare up and may allow a reduction in the dose of prescription drugs needed. DHEA may also help SLE symptoms such as muscle ache and mouth ulcers. DHEA also seems to strengthen bones in SLE patients being treated with high-dose steroids (corticosteroids). DHEA also shows promise in the treatment of osteoporosis. Taking DHEA by mouth daily seems to improve bone mineral density (BMD) in older women and men with osteoporosis or osteopenia (pre-osteoporosis). DHEA may also increase BMD in young women with the eating disorder called anorexia nervosa. DHEA is often prescribed in India for the induction of ovulation to improve chances of pregnancy.
DB02901DihydrotestosteroneNot Available
DB04468AfimoxifeneFor the potential treatment of menstrual-cycle related mastalgia, fibrocystic breast disease, breast disease, gynecomastia and Keloid scarring.
DB0510716-BromoepiandrosteroneInvestigated for use/treatment in cystic fibrosis, HIV infection, hepatitis (viral, B), and malaria.
DB05212HE3286For the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and type 2 diabetes.
DB05804Prasterone sulfateInvestigated for use/treatment in asthma and burns and burn infections.
DB06710MethyltestosteroneMethyltestosterone is an anabolic steroid hormone used to treat men with a testosterone deficiency. It is also used in women to treat breast cancer, breast pain, swelling due to pregnancy, and with the addition of estrogen it can treat symptoms of menopause.
DB08804Nandrolone decanoateFor the treatment of refractory deficient red cell production anemias, breast carcinoma, hereditary angioedema, antithrombin III deficiency, fibrinogen excess, growth failure and Turner's syndrome. It is also indicated in the prophylaxis of hereditary angioedema.
DB08905FormestaneFor the treatment of estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer in post-menopausal women.
DB09123DienogestIndicated for use as the treatment of endometriosis alone and as a contraceptive in combination with ethinylestradiol.
