[Article in Croatian]


Metabolite of 17-methyl-17-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethylen)-androstan-3-one (oxymetholane) in urine after a single oral administration was monitored by gas chromatography+mass spectrometry. During the investigation prepared TMS-ethers and TMS-enol-ethers of conjugated steroid fraction two new metabolites of oxymetholone have been identified: tetrahydrooxymetholone and tetrahydro-6-hydroxy-oxymetholone.
