The review had some limitations, but the authors were appropriately cautious regarding the reliability of the results given the limitations of the original studies.

82. Effects of testosterone replacement in middle-aged men with dysthymia: a randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial (PubMed)

Effects of testosterone replacement in middle-aged men with dysthymia: a randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial Mid-life onset male dysthymic disorder (DD) seems to be a distinct clinical condition with limited therapeutic options. Testosterone replacement is mood-enhancing and has been proposed as an antidepressant therapy, though this strategy has received limited systematic study. We therefore conducted a six-week double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial in 23 men with DD (...) and with low or low-normal testosterone (T) level (i.e, screening total serum testosterone <350 ng/dL). Enrolled men were randomized to receive intramuscular injections of 200 mg of testosterone cypionate or placebo every 10 days. The primary outcome measures were the Clinical Global Impression (CGI) improvement score and the 21-item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS) score.Twenty-three patients were randomized. The mean (SD) age of the enrolled patients was 50.6 (7.0) years and that of total

Short-term testosterone augmentation in male schizophrenics: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial Although there are few studies on the treatment of schizophrenia with testosterone, several indirect findings have suggested testosterone as a possible treatment modality for schizophrenia. To explore the therapeutic effect of testosterone augmentation of antipsychotic medication on symptoms in male patients with schizophrenia, the authors performed a placebo-controlled, double (...) -blind trial on 30 schizophrenic men, using either 5 g of 1% testosterone gel (Testogel; Besins Iscovesco, Paris, France) or a placebo added to a fixed dosage of antipsychotic medication over a period of 4 weeks with a 2-week washout period. In addition, to get additional information about the involvement of these reproductive hormones after testosterone augmentation, the authors evaluated several hormones such as total testosterone, free testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, estradiol

88. Testosterone for low libido in postmenopausal women not taking estrogen. (PubMed)

Testosterone for low libido in postmenopausal women not taking estrogen. The efficacy and safety of testosterone treatment for hypoactive sexual desire disorder in postmenopausal women not receiving estrogen therapy are unknown.We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled, 52-week trial in which 814 women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder were randomly assigned to receive a patch delivering 150 or 300 microg of testosterone per day or placebo. Efficacy was measured to week 24; safety (...) was evaluated over a period of 52 weeks, with a subgroup of participants followed for an additional year. The primary end point was the change from baseline to week 24 in the 4-week frequency of satisfying sexual episodes.At 24 weeks, the increase in the 4-week frequency of satisfying sexual episodes was significantly greater in the group receiving 300 microg of testosterone per day than in the placebo group (an increase of 2.1 episodes vs. 0.7, P<0.001) but not in the group receiving 150 microg per day

DHEA in elderly women and DHEA or testosterone in elderly men. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and testosterone are widely promoted as antiaging supplements, but the long-term benefits, as compared with potential harm, are unknown.We performed a 2-year, placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind study involving 87 elderly men with low levels of the sulfated form of DHEA and bioavailable testosterone and 57 elderly women with low levels of sulfated DHEA. Among the men, 29 received DHEA, 27 (...) received testosterone, and 31 received placebo. Among the women, 27 received DHEA and 30 received placebo. Outcome measures included physical performance, body composition, bone mineral density (BMD), glucose tolerance, and quality of life.As compared with the change from baseline to 24 months in the placebo group, subjects who received DHEA for 2 years had an increase in plasma levels of sulfated DHEA by a median of 3.4 microg per milliliter (9.2 micromol per liter) in men and by 3.8 microg per
