The effect of ovariectomy on excretion of urinary steroids and tumor growth in rats bearing 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced mammary cancer.

Abstract

The relation between the excretion of urinary steroids and the therapeutic effect of ovariectomy on tumors was investigated in female Sprague-Dawley rats bearing 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced mammary cancer. Ovariectomy significantly reduced the excretion of urinary androgen, 11-deoxy-17-oxosteroid (11-DOOS), but hardly affected that of urinary… (More)
