Steroid and its derivatives have been proved to have important and diverse biological functions, which present the wide spectrum of biological activities such as antitumor, antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, antioxidant, insecticidal, aromatase inhibitors, 5α-reductase inhibitors and neuromuscular blocking agents et c. Versatile features of steroid-derived compounds have emerged, so the aim of the present paper was to review the recent advances of steroid-based derivatives mainly focused on their structures and biological properties.
