This brief monograph is one of a series of lectures in endocrinology edited by Dr. Willard O. Thompson. The chemistry of testosterone proprionate is briefly reviewed; its physiological effects and metabolic action are discussed, and its therapeutic uses are described in some detail. A useful feature is the description of therapeutic forms and trade preparations. The addenda, based on reports appearing after the original preparation of the monograph, contains information which amplifies or at times refutes previously expressed concepts. The book contains a bibliography of 260 references.
