Physiologic and therapeutic properties of androgens and androgen manipulation in humans. Major projects include: 1) examination of the consequences of testosterone replacement on prostate health in middle-aged and elderly, hypogonaldal men at both the clinical, hormonal, and molecular levels; 2) examining the effect of androgens on host immunity and inflammation; and 3) determining the effect of testosterone on cardiovascular risk and risk factors. Continued involvement in projects investigating the pharmokinetics of novel oral formulations of testosterone delivery and the development of an effective, reversible male hormonal contraceptive.
