Clinical Trial Summary

Anabolic androgenic steroids (AASs) have been associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). The illicit use of these substances also leads to a remarkable decrease in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) plasma concentration, which could be a key factor in the atherosclerotic process. The investigators tested the functionality of HDL by cholesterol efflux and antioxidant capacity and its association with CAD in young men.


Clinical Trial Description

Twenty strength-trained AAS users (AASU) age 29±5 yr, 20 age-matched strength-trained AAS nonusers (AASNU), and 10 sedentary controls (SC) were enrolled.

HDL concentration and functionality by measuring the 14C-cholesterol efflux mediated by HDL and the ability of HDL in inhibiting LDL oxidation were evaluated.

Coronary artery was evaluated with coronary computed tomography angiography. ;
