Example text

Numerous formulae, both simple and more complex, have been derived for calculation of either free or bioavailable testosterone. These are based on prior measurement of total testosterone and SHBG. The original testosterone binding index which gives a measure of SHBG-bound testosterone was described by Vermeulen et al. [16] followed later by calculation of the ‘apparent free testosterone concentration’ [17]. A relatively simple expression for calculating % free testosterone was devised by Anderson et al.

This may involve disruption of the proteins, extraction of the steroid into an organic solvent or addition of a chemical agent that has a higher binding affinity than has testosterone for the binding proteins. Prior to assay, all the plasma testosterone to be measured should, therefore, be in the free, non-protein-bound state. A number of biochemical indices are available to assess androgen status in men. These include total testosterone, free testosterone estimated by equilibrium dialysis, ultracentrifugation or direct immunoassay, bioavailable (free plus albumin-bound) testosterone, calculated free and bioavailable testosterone or the free androgen index (FAI), namely total testosterone ϫ 100/SHBG.

There were no accumulations of steroid hormones over the 7day test period [9, 10]. Effects on sexual behavior were comparable to those of parenteral administration of 200 mg TE every 20 days. 34 Gooren Transdermal Delivery Testosterone can be delivered to the circulation through intact skin, both genital and nongenital [1, 2]. Transdermal administration delivers testosterone at a controlled rate into the systemic circulation avoiding hepatic first pass and reproducing the diurnal rhythm of testosterone secretion, without the peak and through levels observed in long-acting testosterone injections.
