Testosterone increases muscle mass and strength and regulates other physiological processes, but we do not know whether testosterone effects are dose dependent and whether dose requirements for maintaining various androgen-dependent processes are similar. To determine the effects of graded doses of testosterone on body composition, muscle size, strength, power, sexual and cognitive functions, prostate-specific antigen (PSA), plasma lipids, hemoglobin, and insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I… Expand
Older men are as responsive as young men to the anabolic effects of graded doses of testosterone on the skeletal muscle.
TLDR
Older men are as responsive as young men to testosterone's anabolic effects; however, older men have lower testosterone clearance rates, higher increments in hemoglobin, and a higher frequency of adverse effects. Expand
Testosterone-induced increase in muscle size in healthy young men is associated with muscle fiber hypertrophy.
TLDR
The increases in muscle volume in healthy eugonadal men treated with graded doses of testosterone are associated with concentration-dependent increases in cross-sectional areas of both type I and type II muscle fibers and myonuclear number. Expand
Dose-dependent effects of testosterone on regional adipose tissue distribution in healthy young men.
TLDR
Changes in testosterone concentrations in young men are associated with dose-dependent and region-specific changes in AT and lean body mass in the appendices and trunk. Expand
Gonadal steroids and body composition, strength, and sexual function in men.
TLDR
The amount of testosterone required to maintain lean mass, fat mass, strength, and sexual function varied widely in men, and changes in the approach to evaluation and management of hypogonadism in men are supported. Expand
Testosterone dose-dependently increases maximal voluntary strength and leg power, but does not affect fatigability or specific tension.
TLDR
The effects of testosterone on muscle performance are specific; it increases maximal voluntary strength and leg power, but does not affect fatigability or specific tension. Expand
The effects of varying doses of T on insulin sensitivity, plasma lipids, apolipoproteins, and C-reactive protein in healthy young men.
TLDR
Over a wide range of doses, including those associated with significant gains in fat-free mass and muscle size, T had no adverse effect on insulin sensitivity, plasma lipids, apolipoproteins, or C-reactive protein. Expand
Effects of a supraphysiological dose of testosterone on physical function, muscle performance, mood, and fatigue in men with HIV-associated weight loss.
TLDR
In HIV-infected men with weight loss, a supraphysiological dose of testosterone significantly increased FFM but did not improve self-reported or performance-based measures of physical function and improvements in mood, fatigue, and quality of life measures in the testosterone group, although clinically important, need further confirmation. Expand
Effects of a Supraphysiologic Dose of Testosterone on Physical Function, Muscle Performance, Mood, and Fatigue in Men with Human Immunodeficiency Virus Associated Weight Loss
ABSTRACT Context. Testosterone increases fat-free mass (FFM) in HIV-infected men, but its effects on muscle performance, physical function, mood and quality of life are poorly understood. Methods:Expand
Development of models to predict anabolic response to testosterone administration in healthy young men.
TLDR
The anabolic response of healthy, young men to exogenous testosterone administration can largely be predicted by the testosterone dose, thanks to univariate and multivariate analysis and cross-validation in data subsets. Expand
Effects of varying doses of testosterone on atherogenic markers in healthy younger and older men.
TLDR
In apparently healthy men, over a wide dose range, testosterone did not adversely affect atherogenic biomarkers and long-term studies with larger sample sizes are warranted to determine whether testosterone supplementation affects atherosclerosis progression and cardiovascular risk. Expand

Testosterone replacement increases fat-free mass and muscle size in hypogonadal men.
TLDR
Replacement doses of testosterone increase fat-free mass and muscle size and strength in hypogonadal men in the setting of controlled nutritional intake and exercise level and whether androgen replacement in wasting states characterized by low testosterone levels will have similar anabolic effects remains to be studied.

TLDR
The dose-response relationship and mechanisms of androgen action on the muscle for controlling it are being investigated and whether increases in muscle mass and function can be achieved with dosages that will not adversely affect lipid profile, cardiovascular risk, and the prostate is investigated. Expand
Effects of endogenous testosterone and estradiol on sexual behavior in normal young men.
TLDR
In a randomized, double-blind study, a GnRH antagonist is used to induce acute, profound, reversible gonadal steroid deficiency in 9 normal men for 6 weeks and the role of endogenous testosterone or estradiol in the regulation of behavior in healthy, eugonadal men is studied. Expand
Testosterone deficiency in young men: marked alterations in whole body protein kinetics, strength, and adiposity.
TLDR
Testosterone deficiency in young men is associated with a marked decrease in measures of whole body protein anabolism, decreased strength, decreased fat oxidation, and increased adiposity, suggesting a direct effect of androgens on whole body lipid and protein metabolism. Expand
The effects of supraphysiologic doses of testosterone on muscle size and strength in normal men.
TLDR
Those given testosterone had greater increases than those given placebo in muscle size in their arms and the strength of the arms and legs was assessed by bench-press and squatting exercises, respectively. Expand
The effects of supraphysiologic doses of testosterone on muscle size and strength in normal men.
TLDR
Supraphysiologic doses of testosterone, especially when combined with strength training, increase fat-free mass and muscle size and strength in normal men. Expand
Effects of testosterone replacement on sexual behavior in hypogonadal men
TLDR
The data indicate that maleSexual behavior is testosterone dependent and that the individual limit of plasma testosterone below which sexual behavior is impaired lies between 2.0 and 4.5 ng/ml. Expand
Effects of testosterone replacement in hypogonadal men.
TLDR
It is concluded from this study that replacing testosterone in hypogonadal men increases bone mineral density of the spine and hip, fat-free mass, prostate volume, erythropoiesis, energy, and sexual function. Expand
Effect of testosterone treatment on body composition and muscle strength in men over 65 years of age.
TLDR
It is concluded that increasing the serum testosterone concentrations of normal men over 65 yr of age to the midnormal range for young men decreased fat mass, principally in the arms and legs, and increased lean mass, chiefly in the trunk, but did not increase the strength of knee extension and flexion, as measured by dynamometer. Expand
Testosterone replacement and resistance exercise in HIV-infected men with weight loss and low testosterone levels.
TLDR
It is suggested that testosterone and resistance exercise promote gains in body weight, muscle mass, muscle strength, and lean body mass in HIV-infected men with weight loss and low testosterone levels. Expand
