Effect of intravaginal DHEA on serum DHEA and eleven of its metabolites in postmenopausal women



Effect of intravaginal DHEA on serum DHEA and eleven of its metabolites in postmenopausal women



Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 111(3-5): 178-194



The primary objective of this study was measurement of the systemic bioavailability of DHEA and its metabolites following daily intravaginal application of the sex steroid precursor. Forty postmenopausal women were randomized to receive a daily dose of one ovule of the following DHEA concentrations: 0.0%, 0.5%, 1.0% or 1.8%.
