A two-year carcinogenicity study in rats given oxymetholone orally was conducted under the auspices of the US National Toxicology Program (NTP). A wide spectrum of neoplastic and non-neoplastic effects was observed. In male rats, no effects were classified as neoplastic in response to doses up to 150 mg/kg/day (5 times therapeutic exposures with 5 mg/kg based on body surface area). Female rats given 30 mg/kg/day (1 fold the maximum recommended clinical dose of 5 mg/kg/day based on the body surface area) had increased incidences of lung alveolar/bronchiolar adenoma and adenoma or carcinoma combined. At 100 mg/kg/day (about 3 fold the maximum recommended clinical dose of 5 mg/kg/day based on BSA), female rats had increased incidences of hepatocellular adenoma and adenoma or carcinoma combined; the combined incidence of squamous cell carcinoma and carcinoma of the sweat glands also was increased.
Anadrol-50 is used for:
Anadrol was first developed in the 1960’s by Syntex Pharmaceuticals as means to treat anemia and muscle wasting diseases. As is common with many medications designed for this purpose, Anadrol would soon find a welcomed home in the performance enhancing world. This can easily be seen as this particular anabolic steroid is comprised of the drug Oxymetholone which readily promotes weight gain by increasing appetite and red blood cell count, as well as increasing strength. However, there is an interesting note, too much Anadrol can seriously reduce your appetite and make weight gain very difficult; after all, if you can’t eat you can’t grow.
Oxymetholone is one of the strongest steroids available and is a prescription drug that you must get from a doctor. It us a synthetic anabolic steroid that is related to the male hormone testosterone. It is basically insoluble in water but is very soluble in ethanol, dioxane, ether, and chloroform. When people first started using Oxymetholone reports of patients developed leukemia, liver cancer, and esophageal cancer following Oxymetholone treatments. Even though there have been reports of these, Oxymetholone is used to treat a variety of conditions including hypogonadism and also delayed puberty. It also corrects hereditary angioneuroedema, manages breast cancer, promotes nitrogen balance after an injury or types of surgery, and also stimulates the making of red blood cells. Oxymetholone is most commonly consumed by athletes that are trying to improve their performance. They take Oxymetholone because it helps weight gain and counteracts weakness from diseases like HIV infections, burns, and also trauma. Oxymetholone is also a treatment for anemia but has so many side effects that they have since discovered new and better ways to treat it. Oxymetholone had never been produced commercially in the United States but it is available from 14 suppliers but only 8 of them are in the U.S. Oxymetholone is a very expensive drug making the sales to be very low because there are many other steroids that can do what Oxymetholone does to enhance a body. It is estimated that around 44lbs. are sold annually. Oxymetholone was developed in 1906 by Zoltan and it is a white/yellow color that can be a powder or made into solid tablets. The drug is found mainly in China and is taken by mouth as a pill.
