The design of the study is a standard double-blind design, which is needed in this study to allow for unbiased evaluation of efficacy and safety. The effect of the additional impact of testosterone replacement therapy in hypogonadal men on muscle strength and quality of life in comparison to physical exercise alone will be assessed. Treatment duration will be 54 weeks, to monitor the increase as well as the "steady state" of the parameters assessed.

With advancing age testosterone levels decline in men. Low testosterone levels plus certain symptoms are called "Late Onset Hypogonadism (LOH)". Adipose tissue may contribute to testostero...
Both conditions hypogonadism and immobilisation (paraplegia) may contribute or lead to decreased bone mineral density resp osteoporosis. In this study bone mineral density is assessed in h...
This is an observational study with a drug called Nebido, a new testosterone replacement therapy, which is available for the treatment of male hypogonadism. The benefit and safety of Nebid...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of Nebido compared to placebo in elderly men aged 50 and over with symptomatic late onset hypogonadism
The objective of the study is to assess the effect of the testosterone therapy on the body composition, lipid and glucose metabolism, inflammatory markers in patients with metabolic syndro...
As men age, serum testosterone levels decrease. This reduction in testosterone levels may cause symptoms leading to hypogonadism. In addition, the presence of a varicocele can impair Leydig cell funct...
Obesity causes secondary hypogonadism (HG) in men. Standard testosterone (T) replacement therapy improves metabolic parameters but leads to infertility.
Hypogonadism and the treatment of low testosterone is increasingly a subject of medical inquiry and controversy. The few treatments that are FDA-approved such as testosterone topicals, injections, and...
Hypogonadism in boys is one of the commonest conditions encountered in paediatric endocrinology.
Evidence from clinical studies suggests that patients with low testosterone levels are at increased cardiovascular disease risk. Even though the exact mechanisms remain poorly understood, low plasma t...
Condition resulting from deficient gonadal functions, such as GAMETOGENESIS and the production of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES. It is characterized by delay in GROWTH, germ cell maturation, and development of secondary sex characteristics. Hypogonadism can be due to a deficiency of GONADOTROPINS (hypogonadotropic hypogonadism) or due to primary gonadal failure (hypergonadotropic hypogonadism).
Steroidal compounds related to TESTOSTERONE, the major mammalian male sex hormone. Testosterone congeners include important testosterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with androgenic activities.
A potent androgenic metabolite of TESTOSTERONE. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is generated by a 5-alpha reduction of testosterone. Unlike testosterone, DHT cannot be aromatized to ESTRADIOL therefore DHT is considered a pure androgenic steroid.
A potent androgenic steroid and major product secreted by the LEYDIG CELLS of the TESTIS. Its production is stimulated by LUTEINIZING HORMONE from the PITUITARY GLAND. In turn, testosterone exerts feedback control of the pituitary LH and FSH secretion. Depending on the tissues, testosterone can be further converted to DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE or ESTRADIOL.
An ester of TESTOSTERONE with a propionate substitution at the 17-beta position.
