[Article in Russian]


The anabolic activity of apilac was studied in rats in comparison to methanrdostenolone A 10-day administration of apilac (200 mg/kg) produced a pronounced anabolic effect manifested by a hypertrophy of m. soleus. Methanrdostenolone (10 mg/kg) also favored a gain in the muscle weight. The anabolic action of apilac was comparable to that of methanrdostenolone.
