A highly sensitive and specific method has been developed for the simultaneous measurement of free (unconjugated) or sulfate-conjugated forms of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), 7alpha-hydroxy-DHEA (7alpha-OH-DHEA), 7beta-hydroxy-DHEA (7beta-OH-DHEA), and 7-oxo-DHEA (7-oxo-DHEA) in human serum. This method is based upon a stable isotope-dilution technique by(More)
