Testosterone for Peripheral Vascular Disease

2014-08-27 03:37:14 | BioPortfolio

Summary

There is increasing evidence of the linkage of type 2 diabetes with low testosterone levels in men. Testosterone treatment has shown beneficial effects on blood sugar control and obesity in pilot studies in men with type 2 diabetes. Beneficial effects have also been seen on angina- a disease related to atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arterial blood vessels). Peripheral vascular disease is also caused by atherosclerosis. We hypothesise that testosterone will have beneficial effects on peripheral vascualr disease in men with low serum testosterone and type 2 diabetes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A genus of HALOBACTERIACEAE distinguished from other genera in the family by the presence of specific derivatives of TGD-2 polar lipids. Haloarcula are found in neutral saline environments such as salt lakes, marine salterns, and saline soils.
