About the Authors
  • A comprehensive reference on testosterone and other androgens, and their role in human physiology and pathology, this volume covers biosynthesis and mechanisms of action and reviews their effects on brain and behavior, spermatogenesis, hair growth, bones, muscles, erythropoiesis, the cardiovascular system and lipids, erection, and the prostate. Therapeutic uses of testosterone preparations are carefully evaluated, including usage by women, the aging male, and their abuse and detection in sport. The book also considers applications in male contraception, the role of 5a-reductase inhibitors and the controversial use of DHEA.

    • Includes much material on therapeutic applications of testosterone preparations

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Fascinating...an extremely useful clinical overview...this interesting and wide-ranging reference will be a valuable asset to a departmental library..." BJO International

    "An impressive book that is an excellent resource for the researcher, primary or specialist clinician, and fellow in training. It should be part of the library of every andrology, endrocrinology, and primary care professional." Fertility and Sterility

    "I would strongly recommend Testosterone: Action, Deficiency, Substitution to all endocrinologists, basic and clinical alike, as an indispensable source of information about the fundamental biology and clinical physiology of androgens. The editors and the authors should be congratulated on their splendid achievement." TRENDS in Endocrinology and Metabolism, Ariel L. Barkan

    "This book should be read not only by scientists dealing with steroid hormones but also by every doctor treating patients with androgen deficiency. It presents the current knowledge concerning androgen replacement therapy in a convincing manner." Andrologia, A. Jung, GieBen

    "The book is well edited and illustrated and concluded by a detailed index. The volume belongs in the library of all those who deal with men, both clinically and scientifically." The Aging Male, B. Lunenfeld

    "Excellent editorial work resulted in lovely and instructive organization of all chapters. The book certainly should be considered an important contribution to understand the contemporary knowledge about testosterone and about androgens in general." Endocrine Regulations

    "There is much to commend in this book. It remains an impressive overview of the area and the major changes made since the 1998 version are to the good." Human Fertility

    "This book is a must reference for any practitioner or researcher who is going to be involved with measuring or prescribing testosterone or, for that matter, any androgen. it is so comprehensive that urologists who consider themselves a subspecialist in either oncology, impotence, infertility or geriatrics will find the information in this tone pertinent to their subspecialty." The Journal of Urology, Jacob Raifer, M.D.
