Androgenic Endocrine Activity in the Female Mammal

Abstract

PARKES1 recently made the very important statement that ovarian extracts may show androgenic activity when tested on the comb of the capon. Since there was no androgenic activity in purified ovarian hormones, Parkes reasonably concluded that the androgenic activity of the extracts was probably due to the presence of substances of the androsterone-testosterone group.
