Androstanediol glucuronide plasma clearance and production rates in normal and hirsute women.

We studied the kinetics and metabolism of tritiated 5 alpha-androstane-3 alpha-17 beta-diol glucuronide (3 alpha diolG) in normal and hirsute women. We found no difference in the MCR of 3 alpha diolG between normal and hirsute women [130 +/- 39 (+/- SD) vs. 157 +/- 81; P = NS]. The blood production rate was markedly increased in hirsute women (187 +/- 50 vs… CONTINUE READING
