The diffractometer was equipped with dual micro-sources, Eos CCD detector, with the experimental data being collected using CuKα radiation. Where N is the number of the unit cells, a is the fitting parameter, and Elatt means the lattice energy for an infinite number of unit cells. Figure 8 illustrated the fingerprint plots of the 3D Hirshfeld surfaces for Drostanolone propionate polymorphs. The evaluation of fingerprint plots provide the division of different contributions for H…H (labelled as 3), O…H (labelled as 1), H…O (labelled as 2), C…H (labelled as 4), and H…C (labelled as 5) interactions.

Medically, it was used in breast cancer treatment [9] and, in addition, is often used in sport, bodybuilding, and powerlifting as a performance enhancer, while providing increased protein synthesis, which reflects in the gain of lean muscle mass tissue and aids recovery [9]. Often anabolic-androgenic steroids are esterified with the intention to increase the duration of action by intramuscular or subcutaneous administration [12,13]. Drostanolone propionate is an injectable steroid, which is modified by esterification of the parent hormone (drostanolone) in the position of the O-H hydroxyl group (Figure 1). These include drostanolone propionate that has been investigated for treating breast cancer [14], drostanolone enanthate, which by microbial transformation, led to the synthesis of eight potentially anti-cancer metabolites [15]. Since there are no studies regarding the crystal structure of drostanolone propionate and its polymorphism, this paper will focus on the structural aspects of this anabolic-androgenic steroid. For the starting compound (denoted Drost 1), no single crystals were obtained and the structure was solved from powder diffraction data.

Materials and methods

Drostanolone Propionate is an anabolic androgenic steroid that first hit the market around 1970 under the trade name Masteron manufactured by Syntex. However, the compound was actually developed by Syntex in 1959 along with Oxymetholone (Anadrol) but would not be released until well after Anadrol. Syntex would also provide the compound under numerous other brand names such as Masteril and Metormon among others, as well as Drolban under the license given by Syntext to Lilly.

  • Given that nandrolone is not converted to DHT it seems logical to assume that it would have less effect on hair loss than exogenous testosterone (with its subsequent conversion to DHT).
  • Over time, the powerful effects of Masteron were recognized by bodybuilders and athletes, who started using it as a performance-enhancing drug.
  • Available in two primary forms—Masteron Propionate and Masteron Enanthate—this versatile steroid can help users achieve increased strength, muscle hardness, and lean body mass while reducing body fat and water retention.
  • Due, in part, to these adverse effects, and the development of newer and more effective therapies to treat osteoperosis (i.e., bisphosphonates), nandrolone never gained traction as an effective clinical adjunct for this indication.
  • In certain tissues, such as the prostate or in the hair follicles, testosterone is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by 5 alpha-reductase (5AR).

Yes, just about all anabolic steroids require a post cycle therapy period afterwards and Masteron is no exception because it will suppress your testosterone greatly during the cycle. Most people will make use of other steroids combined with Masteron which also come with their own testosterone suppressing effects – sometimes resulting in a complete shutdown of natural testosterone production. Finasteride men PCT making use of drugs like Clomid and Nolvadex as well as hCG is always advised following a Masteron cycle. With regards to the mechanisms of nandrolone inside the human body, understanding the pathway of testosterone action is important. In certain tissues, such as the prostate or in the hair follicles, testosterone is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by 5 alpha-reductase (5AR).

It is possible the hormone could provide gains in mass similar to Primobolan Depot, which won’t be that strong either, if the total dose was high enough. However, the relative gain in size will be very moderate with many anabolic steroids being far more suited for this period of steroidal supplementation. There are those who may wish to include Masteron in a bulking plan for its anti-estrogenic and fat loss effects.
