Participants required – Clinical study about non-prescribed androgens

The Andrology Department at Concord Repatriation General Hospital in Sydney is recruiting for a study looking at reproductive and cardiac (heart) health of men using non-prescribed androgens – “anabolic steroids’

There are few good studies measuring the impact of androgen abuse on heart structure and function, and whether these effects are reversible once you stop taking the steroids. This study aims to answer some of these questions.

The study needs men between 18 and 50 years of age, exercising regularly (at least 3 times/week) and current or past users of non-prescribed androgens. Participants must be able to travel to Concord Hospital in Sydney.

You will need to come to the hospital for either a single visit over 4 hours or two visits of 2 hours each. At the visit serum and urine hormones will be measured as well as biochemistry, semen analysis, testicular ultrasound, body composition scans, ECG, ECHO and CT calcium scores.

The study is cost-free and you may be given the Hospital lab test results. However, there is no payment for participating.

If you are interested in finding our more about the study, please contact the Concord Hospital Andrology Department on (02) 9767 7222 or email androgens.study@anzac.edu.au. Otherwise you can put your details into the form at https://goo.gl/forms/P7uipDaan5NgBfMn2 and the study coordinator will contact you.
