Characteristics of Cernos Gel
In medical practice, they are used in the form of ethers, incl. testosterone propionate and testosterone undecanoate. Cernos Gel is a white or almost white crystalline powder, practically insoluble in water, soluble in dioxane and vegetable oils rectified (1: 5) and absolute (1: 6) alcohol, chloroform (1: 2), ether (1: 100) . Molecular weight 344.5.
Testosterone undecanoate – molecular weight 444.7.
Pharmacological action – androgenic, antitumor, anabolic.
Cernos Gel, the main androgen of the male body, is synthesized mainly in testicles and, to a lesser extent, in the adrenal cortex.
Testosterone supplements causes the formation of masculine characteristics during fetal development, in early childhood, as well as during puberty, and subsequently ensures the maintenance of the male phenotype and androgen dependent functions (eg spermatogenesis). It also regulates metabolic processes in the skin, muscles, bones, kidneys, liver, bone marrow and CNS.
Depending on the target organ, the nature of testosterone is mainly androgenic (eg prostate, seminal vesicles, epididymis) or protein-anabolic (muscle, bone, hematopoietic system, kidney, liver).
The action of testosterone in some organs is manifested after the peripheral conversion of testosterone to estradiol, which then binds to estrogen receptors in the nuclei of target cells (eg pituitary, adipose tissue, brain, bones and testicular leidig cells).
Insufficient secretion of testosterone leads to male hypogonadism, which is characterized by low concentrations of testosterone in the serum. Symptoms associated with male hypogonadism include, but are not limited to, impotence, decreased sexual desire, fatigue, depressed mood, absence, underdevelopment or regression of secondary sexual characteristics, and an increased risk of osteoporosis. Exogenous androgens are prescribed to increase inadequate levels of endogenous testosterone and reduce symptoms of hypogonadism.
Use of Substance Cernos Gel
Insufficiency of androgens in men: delay in puberty, oligospermia, post-stroke syndrome, underdevelopment of genital organs, hypopituitarism, infertility in case of spermatogenesis, climacteric syndrome, impotence, osteoporosis.
In women: hyperestrogenism, uterine myoma, endometriosis, menopause (combined with estrogens), premenstrual tension syndrome, breast cancer, osteoporosis.
