          Abstract

          Glomerular filtration-rate was determined in a group of 7 male and 8 female elderly subjects before and after the administration of a new long-acting anabolic agent possessing certain androgenic properties. Renal clearances of inulin and endogenous creatinine were significantly increased in the male subjects alone, and the increments averaged 22.9% and 21.0% respectively of the pretreatment values. It is probable that the difference in response is due to restoration of androgenic support in the deprived aged male individuals, or to sex difference in the metabolism of this substance.
