Bioassay of androgen relies on the increase in weight of seminal vesicle and prostate gland in a castrated rat. Eisenberg and Gordan(1950) used the levator ani method for the measurement of protein anabolic effect. These methods all utilize the direct action of androgen on each target organ atrophied by castration. The most ideal method for bioassay in general is to carry out experiments under the most sensitive physiological condition. Adrenal excretes androgen and estrogen, together with
