J Chromatogr. 1986 Jun 20;379:91-156. doi: 10.1016/s0378-4347(00)80683-0.

Abstract

This paper reviews techniques utilized in the profiling of steroids in body fluids and tissues. Methods for profiling plasma unconjugated steroids and urinary steroid metabolites are focused on. Concentrations or levels of excretion of a variety of steroids have been documented and reviewed. The importance of profiling techniques in the study of normal and pathophysiology of hormonal steroids is discussed.
