Oxandrolone Usage And Synthesis
Oxandrolone is a synthetic anabolic-androgenic steroid. It is a 17 alpha-methylated version of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It can be used for the treatment of many kinds of disorders such as idiopathic short stature, body mass loss due to catabolic illness, severe burns, trauma and hereditary angioedema as well as turner syndrome. Oxandrolone is especially effective in the treatment of severe burns without causing obvious side effects. It acts as an agonist of the androgen receptor, which modulates related gene expression to increase protein synthesis, further boosting muscle growth and increasing body mass as well as bone mineral density. However, it should be noted that its androgenic effect is less than its anabolic effect.
androgenic anabolic steroid;reverses catabolic tissue processes; promotes buildup of protein; increases erythropoietin production
A synthetic, anabolic steroid. Used to promote muscle growth and combat involuntary weight loss. It has also been used to treat cases of osteoporosis.
Oxandrolone, 17β-hydroxy-17-methyl-2-oxaandrostan-3-one, is approved to aid in the promotionof weight gain after weight loss following surgery,chronic infections, or severe trauma and to offset protein catabolismassociated with long-term corticosteroid use.Oxandrolone is also used to relieve bone pain accompanyingosteoporosis. It has been used to treat alcoholic hepatitisand HIV wasting syndrome.
Moderately toxic by ingestion andintraperitoneal routes. Experimental reproductive effects.When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke andfumes.
