Studies of simultaneous autologous 131I-chylomicron (Sf greater than 400) and 125I-very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) (Sf 20 to 400) apolipoprotein B (apo B) were performed both before (triglyceride level c 1500 mg/dL) and during treatment with stanozolol, a 17 alpha-methyl anabolic androgenic steroid (triglyceride level c 750 mg/dL) in a 74-year-old woman with a past history of recurrent chylomicronemic pancreatitis. Both before and during stanozolol treatment chylomicron apo B disappeared rapidly and directly, little appearing in VLDL and virtually none in intermediate (IDL) or low density lipoproteins (LDL). Multicompartmental analysis indicated that the great majority of chylomicron apo B was removed via an extremely rapid compartment (estimated fractional catabolic rate [FCR], /h), accounting for 66% before and 88% during stanozolol treatment. The remaining 131I-apo B decayed biphasically, with total Sf greater than 400 residence times of hours before and hours during stanozolol treatment. Hence, despite a moderately depressed adipose tissue lipoprotein lipase activity, the subject's hypertriglyceridemia did not appear to proceed solely from retarded chylomicron removal, nor was the dramatic decrease in triglyceride in response to stanozolol a function only of the acceleration of such removal. VLDL apo B kinetics were analyzed by a multicompartmental model featuring a rapid, stepwise delipidation chain which proceeds either rapidly to IDL and LDL or to a slowly turning over compartment within VLDL. While VLDL. apo B synthesis remained essentially constant, the major effect of stanozolol was a substantial reduction in the fraction of VLDL apo B diverted to this slowly turning over compartment, which decreased from % before to % during treatment.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
Stanozolol is the generic name of stanozolol in English , German , French , and Japanese and its INN , USAN , USP , BAN , DCF , and JAN , while stanozololum is its name in Latin , stanozololo is its name in Italian and its DCIT , and estanozolol is its name in Spanish .    Androstanazole , stanazol , stanazolol , and estanazolol are unofficial synonyms of stanozolol.   The drug is also known generically by its former developmental code names NSC-43193 and WIN-14833 . 
Anabolic steroids (ABS) boldenone (BL; mg/kg) and stanozolol (ST; mg/kg) were administered . to horses and the plasma samples collected up to 64 days. Anabolic steroids and androgenic steroids (ANS) in plasma were quantified using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The limit of detection of all analytes was 25 pg/mL. The median absorption (t1/2 partial differential) and elimination (t1/2e) half-lives for BL were h and h, respectively, and the area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUCho) was /mL. The median t1/2e for ST was h and the was /mL. Peak mean (X+/-SD) plasma concentrations (Cmax) for BL and ST were and pg/mL, respectively. Quantifiable concentrations of ABS and ANS were found in % of the 988 plasma samples tested from race tracks. In % of the plasma samples two or more ABS or ANS were quantifiable. Testosterone (TES) concentrations mean (X+/-SE) in racing and nonracing intact males were +/- and +/- pg/mL, respectively. TES was not quantified in nonracing geldings and female horses, but was in racing females and geldings. Plasma concentrations of endogenous 19-nortestosterone (nandrolone; NA) from racing and nonracing males were +/- and +/- pg/mL, respectively.
