Androgen Inhibition of Atherogenesis in Pullets
Continuous testosterone propionate administration, but not pretreatment, inhibited cholesterol-induced coronary atherogenesis in pullets. This inhibition was associated with depression of the plasma total cholesterol, phospholipids. c/p ratio and turbidity. Aortic atherogenesis was not affected.
