THE preparation and physiological properties of synthetic ” strogenic agents were first described in these columns and elsewhere1,2,3. The active compounds described in these publications were derivatives of phenanthrene or 1:2:5:6-dibenzanthracene, and it was noted that at the time of writing no active substances had been discovered which did not contain the phenanthrene nucleus.
