Due to the potential for misuse of a wide range of anabolic steroids in horse racing, a screening test to detect multiple compounds, via a common class of metabolites, would be a valuable forensic tool. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) has been developed to detect 17α-alkyl anabolic steroid metabolites in equine urine. 16β-Hydroxymestanolone (16β,17β-dihydroxy-17α-methyl-5α-androstan-3-one) was synthesised in six steps from commercially available epiandrosterone...[Show more]
