Abstract

Testosterone undecanoate (TU) has potential as androgen therapy for ovariectomized female to male (FtM) transsexual subjects; however, the long-term physiologic effects of TU treatment, the significance of testosterone (T), and the T metabolites dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and estradiol (E) on specific outcome parameters are currently unknown.
Effects of testosterone undecanoate administered alone or in combination with letrozole or dutasteride in female to male transsexuals / Meriggiola, Maria Cristina; Armillotta, Francesca; Costantino, Antonietta; Altieri, Paola; Saad, Farid; Kalhorn, Thomas; Perrone, Anna Myriam; Ghi, Tullio; Pelusi, Carlotta; Pelusi, Giuseppe. - In: JOURNAL OF SEXUAL MEDICINE. - ISSN 1743-6095. - 5:10(2008), pp. 2442-53-???.
