OBJECTIVE The physiological role of adrenal androgens In humans remains unclear. Furthermore, there are few data on the relation between sex steroids and adrenal androgen production. We have assessed the effects of sex steroid hormone administration on adrenal androgen levels, by studying a large group of transsexual patients. DESIGN A non‐randomized intervention. 
Androgens of Adrenal Origin
TLDR
The role and effects of AAs are reviewed and the clinical significance of their hypersecretion during different stages of life in both sexes is analyzed. Expand
Effects of flutamide on pituitary and adrenal responsiveness to corticotrophin releasing factor (CRF)
TLDR
The effect of flutamide treatment on the adrenal androgen response to corticotrophin releasing factor (CRF) in eight patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is investigated. Expand
Perturbations of hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis and adrenal androgen (AA) functions in rheumatoid arthritis.
The available evidence reviewed does not allow definitive response to the question of a primary versus secondary role of sex hormone perturbations in RA. However, this conclusion should not beExpand
Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Dysfunction in the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
TLDR
Between 20 and 30% of patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) demonstrate adrenal androgen excess, detectable primarily by elevated dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) levels, which may be a genetically determined trait. Expand
Influence of insulin and testosterone on adrenocortical steroidogenesis in vitro: preliminary studies.
TLDR
It is clear that extra-adrenal factors such as insulin and T have some adrenal regulatory capacity, and insulin stimulated DHEAS and decreased DHEA production, suggesting that it increases adrenocortical sulfotransferase activity. Expand
Changes in Adrenal Androgens During Puberty Suppression and Gender-Affirming Hormone Treatment in Adolescents With Gender Dysphoria.
TLDR
The absence of changes in androstenedione levels in transgirls or DHEAS levels in either sex during gender-affirming hormone treatment suggests that gender- Affirmed Hormone treatment does not significantly affect adrenal androgen production. Expand
Effects of gonadal androgens on adrenal androgen levels
TLDR
The finding that 6 months after stopping therapy the psychological characteristics of patients reverted to those recorded before treatment suggests the GH dependence of the effects observed during therapy, and the poor psychosocial outcome in adulthood was more evident in patients who have remained shorter than normal, suggesting the importance of short stature in causing social problems in adulthood. Expand
In vivo effects of sex steroids on lymphocyte responsiveness and immunoglobulin levels in humans.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the capacity to develop a TH1 phenotype of peripheral blood lymphocytes is stimulated by androgens and is slightly inhibited by estrogens, which may be direct or indirect through the effects on other hormones. Expand
Changes in Adrenal Steroids During Puberty Suppression and Cross Sex Hormone Treatment in Gender Dysphoric Adolescents
TLDR
A large number of individuals treated with puberty suppression using gonadotropin releasing hormone analogues followed by cross sex hormones had baseline DHEA-S within the reference range, androstenedione decreased during GnRHa treatment in FtMs whereas levels in MtFs did not change. Expand
Lack of an ovarian function influence on the increased adrenal androgen secretion present in women with functional ovarian hyperandrogenism.
TLDR
Increased adrenal delta 4-17, 20-lyase activity is present in functional ovarian hyperandrogenism women with adrenal hyperandrogensism, and no influence of the excess ovarian androgens or estrogens was found on any of the adrenal enzymatic pathways explored. Expand

Adrenal androgen secretion and biologic effects.
TLDR
The biologic effects of dehydroepiandrosterone on cytokine secretion by lymphocytes, reduction of neoplasia, obesity, and endothelial injury and stimulation of bone growth appear to be unexplained by metabolism of this adrenal androgen to other steroid hormone, suggesting that dehydration is a steroid hormone. Expand
Testosterone administration increases adrenal response to adrenocorticotrophin
TLDR
This study was designed to determine whether testosterone can increase the response of the adrenal gland to stimulation by adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH). Expand
Adrenal and ovarian contributions to the elevated free plasma androgen levels in hirsute women.
TLDR
The failure of dexamethasone to suppress plasma free androgens to normal levels in amenorrheic, hirsute women is probably due to overproduction of androgen by the ovaries of such subjects. Expand
Effect of androgen on adrenal steroidogenesis in normal women.
TLDR
The data suggest that acute T elevations result in subtle inhibition of 21-and/or 11 beta-hydroxylase activities, but not in 17-20-desmolase or 3 beta-ol activities. Expand
High testosterone levels of ovarian origin affect adrenal steroidogenesis?
TLDR
Analysis of 17-hydroxyprogesterone and cortisol responses to an ACTH stimulation test does not seem to confirm that high T levels of ovarian origin affect adrenal steroidogenesis. Expand
Chronic high-dosage androgen administration to ovulatory women does not alter adrenocortical steroidogenesis.
TLDR
It is concluded that chronic hypertestosteronemia does not alter adrenal steroidogenesis. Expand

TLDR
Several lines of evidence include the inability of ACTH to maintain a normal adrenal androgen/cortisol ratio in adrenally suppressed patients, or experimentally, in hypophysectomized chimpanzees. Expand
The impact of estrogen on adrenal androgen sensitivity and secretion in polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that estrogen is at least one factor that influences adrenal androgen sensitivity in PCO and may help explain the frequent finding of adrenal hyperandrogenism in this syndrome. Expand
The effects of estrogen on adrenal androgens in oophorectomized women.
TLDR
There was a dose-related change in the ACTH-stimulated steroid ratios that indicated and increase in 17,20D and 2 beta ol activities and in women who were gien 2.5 mg of CE, these enzyme activities were similar to those in OV women. Expand

TLDR
It was found that estrogen administration to agonadal men suppressed basal and LH-RH-stimulated LH levels and LH pulse amplitude while LH pulse frequency remained unaffected, and antiandrogens and antiestrogens evoked almost identical effects. Expand
