Submitter Supplied Information

The goal of this study was to determine the effects of a well-characterized anti-androgen, abiraterone acetate, and a suspected human anti-androgen, di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP) on the androgenic function of human fetal testis. Human fetal testis was xenografted into the renal subcapsular space of castrated male athymic nude mice. Hosts were treated with hCG to stimulate testosterone production in the xenografts, and were concurrently treated with either abiraterone acetate or DBP. While abiraterone acetate (14 d, 75 mg/kg/d p.o.) dramatically reduced testosterone and the weights of androgen-sensitive host organs, DBP (14 d, 500 mg/kg/d p.o.) had no effect on androgenic endpoints.
