Steroids and Fertility

brief description

Dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEA-S), a 19-carbon steroid, is the most abundant adrenal androgen in the circulation. Most of the circulating DHEA-S originates from either direct adrenal secretion or by peripheral sulphation of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) secreted by the adrenal cortex. In males, some DHEA-S is secreted by the testes but in females the ovaries never secrete DHEA-S even in pathological disease states. Circulating levels of DHEA-S increase from about the seventh year of life, peak in the third decade and decrease gradually thereafter.

intended use

EIAgen DHEA-S is a direct solid phase enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative measurement of dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEA-S) in human serum or plasma.
