Endocrine changes after diethylstilbestrol therapy. Effects on prostatic neoplasm and pituitary-gonadal axis.

Abstract

This study was undertaken to determine the effects of DES (diethylstilbestrol) on prostatic neoplasms and of different dosage levels on the pituitary-gonadal axis. It is recommended that when DES is chosen for treatment plasma testosterone be monitored carefully and for long periods of time to evaluate the ability of the dose to achieve levels comparable to castration in each patient.
