Androstenedione Market Introduction

Androstenedione is a 19-carbon steroid hormone produced in the adrenal glands. It is known to stimulate the development of sex organs, sexual characters, and favor the development of masculine characteristics. It also shows significant effects on scalp and body hair in humans. It is considered to be a male sex hormone; however, it is present in the blood of both men and women and is a precursor that can be converted by the body into more potent androgens, such as testosterone, or converted into the female hormone estrogen.

Androstenedione hormone secretion is controlled by two key parts of the brain (the hypothalamus and pituitary gland) which are known to control androstenedione secretion from the testes, ovaries, and adrenal cortex. Overproduction of androstenedione could lead to an imbalance in estrogen and testosterone production, leading to changes such as breast development in men and hirsutism, amenorrhoea, worsening acne, and changes to the genitalia in women.
