Androstanediol glucuronide (Adiol G) has been reported to be a marker of peripheral androgen metabolism and action. It consists of two isomers, Adiol 3-G and Adiol 17-G. Adiol G is formed from unconjugated precursors by the enzyme glucuronyl transferase. To determine the likely source of Adiol G formation in man, we developed a glucuronyl transferase assay(More)
Testosterone exerts negative feedback control on gonadotropin secretion either directly, after aromatization to estradiol, or after 5 alpha-reduction to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Conflicting data exist as to the role of DHT in the modulation of this negative feedback. To determine whether suppression of endogenous DHT alters gonadotropin secretion, we gave(More)
The red blood cell eluates of two patients with warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) were found to have anti-dl and anti-Wrb in a study of 150 individuals with positive AHG tests.7 In that series 39 per cent of AIHA cases had anti-Wrb as part of the autoantibody specificity. The eluates of these two patients were of further interest since they showed(More)
