Brief description of Andriol:
Andriol 40mg Capsule is an oral drug used in adult men for testosterone replacement to treat various health problems caused by lack of testosterone. Testosterone Undecanoate is the active ingredient present in Andriol which helps relieve problems such as infertility, low sex drive, fatigue, depressive states, bone loss. Andriol 40mg Capsules is useful for those whose body is unable to produce enough testosterone on its own. It is also used to treat bone disease caused by a lack of testosterone.
Mode of action of Andriol:
Testosterone Undecanoate shows its effects through the activation of the androgen receptor (directly or as DHT) and the conversion to estradiol and the activation of some estrogen receptors. The DHT receptor complex undergoes a structural change that allows it to enter the cell nucleus and bind to specific nucleotide sequences of chromosomal DNA. The binding areas are called hormonal response elements and control the transcriptional activity of certain genes, leading to androgenic effects.
