  • Summary An 8-day rat levator ani muscle assay for myotrophic activity is presented. Preliminary steroid screening results indicate that 19-nortestosterone and other 19-nor analogs of androgens promise to be effective protein-anabolic, and relatively weak androgenic agents. Using the same dose levels of 19-nortestosterone and testosterone, equal myotrophic responses were produced, yet 19-nortestosterone showed only weak androgenic activity and testosterone exhibited strong androgenic activity… CONTINUE READING
