Description:

A comprehensive reference on testosterone and other androgens, and their role in human physiology and pathology, this volume covers biosynthesis and mechanisms of action and reviews their effects on brain and behavior, spermatogenesis, hair growth, bones, muscles, erythropoiesis, the cardiovascular system and lipids, erection, and the prostate. Therapeutic uses of testosterone preparations are carefully evaluated, including usage by women, the aging male, and their abuse and detection in sport. The book also considers applications in male contraception, the role of 5a-reductase inhibitors and the controversial use of DHEA.
