At a glance......
Nandrolone /Deca-Durabolin is a synthetic anabolic steroid analog of testosterone. Similar to testosterone, nortestosterone (19-Nortestosterone) binds to and activates specific nuclear receptors. This agent may be used for testosterone replacement therapy in hypogonadal men, in HIV-wasting syndrome, and in other conditions in order to increase nitrogen retention and fat-free muscle mass.
Nandrolone also is known as 19-nortestosterone, is an androgen and anabolic steroid (AAS) which is used in the form of esters such as nandrolone decanoate and nandrolone phenylpropionate. Nandrolone esters are used in the treatment of anemias, cachexia (wasting syndrome), osteoporosis, breast cancer, and for other indications. They are not active by mouth and must be given by injection into a muscle.
Mechanism of Action of Nandrolone
Indications of Nandrolone
- Anemia Associated with Chronic Renal Failure
- Breast Cancer
- Osteoporosis (loss of bone tissue)

Therapeutic Indications of Nandrolone
- Nandrolone decanoate is indicated for the treatment of anemia associated with renal insufficiency (and as adjuvant therapy for aplastic and sickle cell anemias Adequate iron intake is necessary for maximum therapeutic response.
- Nandrolone phenpropionate is indicated in the treatment of refractory deficient red cell production anemias.
- These may include aplastic anemia, myelofibrosis, myelosclerosis, agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, and hypoplastic anemias caused by malignancy or myelotoxic drugs. Anabolic steroid therapy should not replace other supportive measures.
- Anabolic steroids and nandrolone phenpropionate are indicated as a treatment for palliation of inoperable metastatic breast cancer in postmenopausal women. However, anabolic steroids should be considered for use only after inadequate response to newer, less toxic medications such as tamoxifen in hormonally responsive breast cancer.
- Anabolic steroids have also been used to treat breast cancer in premenopausal women who have undergone oophorectomy and are considered to have a hormone-responsive tumor.
