Urinary excretion of 17-ketosteroids (17-KS).and 17-hydroxycorticosteroids (17-OHCS), and weight of adrenal glands, thymus, and ovaries from pregnant rats and nonpregnant rats.
The urinary excretion of 17-KS increased markedly in the groups administered these agents (7.9 [+ or -] 0.4, 8.5 [+ or -] 0.6, and 8.4 [+ or -] 0.7 [micro]g/ml/CRE for the aromatase inhibitor group, testosterone group 1, and testosterone group 2, respectively) compared to the excretion of the exhaust-exposed groups and control group.
Although the differences among exposed groups were not significant, 17-KS increased slightly in the group exposed to total exhaust.
