The presence of the anabolic steroid boldenone in animals has become a research topic as its occurrence is proposed to be a marker for illegal hormone administration. However, boldenone can also be formed from β-sitosterol, a phytosterol present in animal feed, as well as from endogenous sources. The observations in animals together with the increased consumption of phytosterol-enriched foods in the Western population led the authors to the hypothesis that consumption of phytosterol-enriched… Expand
Excretion of endogenous boldione in human urine: Influence of phytosterol consumption
TLDR
This preliminary in vivo trial indicates the endogenous origin of boldione or ADD in human urine, independent on the presence of any structural related analytes such as phytosterols. Expand
The pseudoendogenous anabolic steroid 1,4-androstadiene-3,17-dione does not occur naturally in Rhodiola rosea L. radix and rhizome
TLDR
The anabolic steroid 1,4-androstadiene-3,17-dione was not detectable in the Rhodiola rosea roots and rhizomes, at least not present in amounts which may be a concern for athletes who want to avoid the consumption of this anabolic agent with Rhodiola dietary supplementation. Expand
Incretin effect of Urena lobata leaves extract on structure and function of rats islet β-cells
TLDR
Oral administration of aqueous extract U. lobata leaves at doses of 250, 500, and 1000 mg/kg body weight were able to prolong GLP-1 bioavailability when compared to the diabetic group whereas blood glucose level were decreased about 30%, 35%, and 40% respectively (p < 0.05). Expand
Evidence of boldenone, nandrolone, 5(10)-estrene-3β-17α-diol and 4-estrene-3,17-dione as minor metabolites of testosterone in equine.
TLDR
In vitro experiments involving the incubation of testosterone with horse liver microsomes, liver, adipose and muscle tissues, and adrenal cortex homogenates failed to provide evidence that these four substances are minor metabolites of testosterone. Expand
Sitosterolemia—10 years observation in two sisters
TLDR
Two sisters with the rare, autosomal recessive condition, sitosterolemia, are followed for over 10 years and treatment with a diet low in plant lipids plus ezetimibe to block the absorption of sterols corrected most of the clinical and biochemical signs of the disease. Expand

Ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled to triple quadrupole mass spectrometry detection of naturally occurring thiouracil in urine of untreated livestock, domesticated animals and humans
TLDR
Urine samples of animals and humans with known and unknown clinical backgrounds were analysed for thiouracil with a newly developed ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled to a triple quadrupole mass spectrometric analysis method without derivatisation to demonstrate the natural occurrence of thaviouracil in urine of animalsand humans.

This study was carried out in order to understand the effect of hatching egg injection (In Ovo injection) with the Crude and Nano-Steroidal Extract laboratory prepared of the Bacopa monnieri L. inExpand
Novel analytical methods for the determination of steroid hormones in edible matrices.
TLDR
The most relevant EU legislation regarding the residue control of steroid hormones and their use in animal fattening is presented and the possibilities of novel analytical approaches are discussed. Expand

Presence and metabolism of the anabolic steroid boldenone in various animal species: a review
TLDR
There was a necessity for further research to distinguish between naturally occurring and illegally usedboldenone forms, and the confirmation of the presence of boldenone metabolites (free and conjugated forms) in certain matrices of animals is proposed as a marker for the illegal treatment with Boldenone. Expand
Endogenous occurrence of some anabolic steroids in swine matrices
TLDR
The results give a well-documented overview of the status of the presence of these hormones in swine and illustrate that uncastrated ‘old’ boars produce the highest percentage of ‘positive’ matrices, followed by the cryptorchids, and urine samples from an intersex pig contains a higher concentration of nortestosterone than sows and can therefore be suspected for illegal use ofThese hormones.

Effectiveness of customary use of phytosterol/-stanol enriched margarines on blood cholesterol lowering.
TLDR
The beneficial effect of the phytosterol/-stanol enriched margarine, used under customary conditions can be characterized as a stabilization of cholesterol levels, which is the first report finding a modest beneficial effect on blood cholesterol level under customary Conditions. Expand
Efficacy and safety of plant stanols and sterols in the management of blood cholesterol levels.
TLDR
Present evidence is sufficient to promote use of sterols and stanols for lowering LDL cholesterol levels in persons at increased risk for coronary heart disease. Expand
Comparison of the effects of plant sterol ester and plant stanol ester-enriched margarines in lowering serum cholesterol concentrations in hypercholesterolaemic subjects on a low-fat diet
TLDR
STAEST and STEEST margarines reduced significantly and equally serum total and LDL cholesterol concentrations as part of a low-fat diet. Expand
The cardiac toxicity of anabolic steroids.
TLDR
The mechanisms of cardiac disease as a result of anabolic steroid use are discussed in this review and persist long after use has been discontinued and have significant impact on subsequent morbidity and mortality. Expand
Rapeseed oil, olive oil, plant sterols, and cholesterol metabolism: an ileostomy study
TLDR
Rapeseed oil, tends to decrease cholesterol absorption, increases excretion of cholesterol and bile acids, increases serum marker of bile acid synthesis, and decreases serum levels of cholesterol compared to olive oil. Expand
Intake of dietary plant sterols is inversely related to serum cholesterol concentration in men and women in the EPIC Norfolk population: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
In a free-living population, a high intake of plant sterols is inversely associated with lower concentrations of total and low-density lipoprotein serum cholesterol, which may partly explain diet-related effects on serum cholesterol concentration. Expand
Non-cholesterol sterols in serum, lipoproteins, and red cells in statin-treated FH subjects off and on plant stanol and sterol ester spreads.
TLDR
Ste reduces LDL cholesterol, but increases serum, lipoproteins, and red cell plant sterol levels in statin-treated FH subjects, while all the respective values are decreased with STA. Expand
