ETHYLESTRENOL Usage And Synthesis

Uses

Ethylestrenol is an anabolic steroid. Ethylestrenol is an illegal growth promoter used in livestock and are often tested for as part of a routine screening program for forbidden growth promoters.

Definition

ChEBI: A 17beta-hydroxy steroid that is estrane containing a double bond between positions 4 and 5 and substituted by an ethyl group and a hydroxy group at the 17alpha and 17beta positions, respectively. It is an anabolic steroid that has little androgenic effect and only slight progestational activity. It has been used to promote growth in boys with delayed bone growth.

World Health Organization (WHO)

Ethylestrenol, an anabolic steroid, was introduced in 1964. In 1982, low dosage preparations were prohibited in Bangladesh due to inadmissible promotion of products containing anabolic steroids for malnourished children. Higher dosage preparations of ethylestrenol remain available in many countries, including Bangladesh, for several highly specific but limited indications that apply to patients with chronic debilitating and emaciating diseases, particularly associated with neoplasia and some types of aplastic anaemia. Ethylestrenol is additionally used for its fibrinolytic activity.
