Effects of synthetic androgen fluoxymesterone on triglyceride secretion rates in the rat

, : Effects of synthetic androgen fluoxymesterone on triglyceride secretion rates in the rat. Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine. Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine 149(2): 452-454

Fluoxymesterone, a C-17 methylated derivative of testosterone employed in the treatment of renal-failure patients with refractory anemia, was administered to Sprague-Dawley rats and the effects on plasma triglyceride (TG) and immunoreactive insulin (IRI) levels and the rate of hepatic triglyceride secretion (TGSR) into plasma determined (Triton). Animals treated with fluoxymesterone demonstrated significantly lower TG (less than 0.05) and no alteration in TGSR. These findings are consistent with other observations which suggest that the triglyceride-lowering effect of androgens results from an accelerated rate of removal of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins from plasma.
