Nandrolone decanoate in the form of the Organon product, Deca-Durabolin, has been around for over 30 years. It has anabolic, androgenic, progestogenic and erythropoietic activity. The steroid maintains the anabolic activity of testosterone but the androgenic action is markedly diminished. The anabolic/androgenic quotient after 2 weeks of treatment has been shown to be 12 times that obtained with testosterone decanoate. Nandrolone decanoate has been shown to influence calcium metabolism positively and to increase bone mass in osteoporosis. Androgenic effects are relatively uncommon at the recommended therapeutic dosages.
As nandrolone is not C17-alpha-alkylated it does not have as strong an association with the occurrence of liver dysfunction and cholestasis. However, it may cause fluid retention and oedema due to sodium retention by the kidney. Nandrolone decanoate is slowly released from the injection site into the blood with a half-life of 68 days.
Nandrolone decanoate has been used to treat a variety of disorders, including:
osteoporosis in post-menopausal women
disseminated breast cancer in women
protein deficiency states occurring after major surgery or trauma
chronic renal failure
