This book presents an authoritative review of the research regarding the influences of anabolic-androgenic steroids on metabolism. The book provides a concise description of the biochemistry of these steroids using simple terms and includes methods of separation and their clinical applications. The first section of the book examines the general structure, nomenclature, and classification of anabolic-androgenic steroids. Subsequent chapters explore concepts basic to understanding the pathways of their metabolism in both target and non-target tissues, including the interactions of steroids with receptors and the effects of steroids on the cellular metabolism of skeletal muscle. The changes and molecular base of modifications in metabolism during exercise involving anabolic-androgenic steroids are also described. Finally, a comprehensive review of methods for scanning and identifying anabolic-androgenic steroids in biological fluids is presented, as well as a discussion regarding the applicability and limitations of these techniques. The book provides valuable reference information for all scientists and clinicians engaged in sports medicine, exercise biochemistry, and endocrinology.

This volume was planned to provide a comprehensive survey of the role of the anabolic-androgenic steroids in the vital economy exclusive of the androgenic (sexual) functions. It seemed appropriate to bring together all of this information in an organized fashion in one volume at this time not only to serve as a source of information but also to indicate and suggest areas that need further exploration. The anabolic action of the steroid hormones has gone through a period of great activity in both basic and clinical research. A complete understanding of the manifold anabolic effects still remains to be elucidated and the art of clinical application is only gradually becoming apparent. This volume should be useful not only to the experienced investigator in both basic and clinical research but also for the novice. Furthermore, it should serve as a source of information for the careful use of these steroids in certain metabolic diseases. These steroids have had wide clinical application with variable results. In many instances further careful exploration is suggested. Other instances have demonstrated varying degrees of usefulness.

This book provides a broad reference covering important drugs of abuse including amphetamines, opiates, and steroids. It also covers psychoactive plants such as caffeine, peyote, and psilocybin. It provides chemical structures, analytical methods, clinical features, and treatments of these drugs of abuse, serving as a highly useful, in-depth supplement to a general medical toxicology book. The style allows for the easy application of the contents to searchable databases and other electronic products, making this an essential resource for practitioners in medical toxicology, industrial hygiene, occupational medicine, pharmaceuticals, environmental organizations, pathology, and related fields.

This book provides information on testosterone and other androgens, and their role in human physiology and pathology. It covers biosynthesis and mechanisms of action and reviews their effects on brain and behaviour, spermatogenesis, hair growth, bones, muscles, erythropoiesis, the cardiovascular system and lipids, erection, and the prostate. Therapeutic uses of testosterone preparations are carefully evaluated, including use in women, the aging male, and its abuse and detection in sport. The book reviews applications in male contraception, the role of 5a-reductase inhibitors and the controversial use of DHEA. For this book the editors have assembled the world leaders in testosterone research and clinical andrology and endocrinology. A special feature of the book is the fact that its 24 chapters were submitted simultaneously to insure rapid publication. This revised and significantly expanded edition will serve as the standard source of reference for many years.

Addresses the question of whether or not anabolic steroids in themselves possess abuse potential or if they simply play a role in the abuse of other substances. A historical overview of the discovery and development of the drug is provided, plus an evaluation of the drug's performance-enhancing effects. Health risks associated with the abuse of anabolic steroids are covered along with the biological reasons why steroids affect the body the way they do. Behavioral effects are also discussed. Charts, graphs and diagrams.
