The paper outlines a new mode of intravascular anabolic steroidal transport. The single intravenous administration of metandrostenolone aqueous solution to rats increases hypertrophy rate of MM. plantaris. It was shown that the action of a single dose (0.05 mg/kg) exceeded that of metandrostenolone oil solution in a dose of 5 mg/kg. The multiple reduction of doses of the anabolic drug and the high level of bioavailability were achieved. This effect was explained by the application of the specific transport agent.
