Dragon Pharmaceutical Inc. is an international biopharmaceutical corporation engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of genetically engineered human proteins for therapeutic use. Based on its proprietary protein expression technology, Dragon believes that it has become one of the world’s most competitive producers of Erythropoietin (EPO) a breakthrough drug that has revolutionized the treatment of anemia. Dragon is also applying its platform technology to the development of other generic and novel protein drugs.
Masteron has been used to treat certain forms of breast cancer (1)(2), and for this, it’s reasonably effective. It was, however, been largely replaced by first through third generation Aromatase Inhibitors such as from Nolvadex to Letrozole. However, in at least one study, Masteron & Tamoxifen produced better results than Chemotherapy with regards to producing immediate objective responses from patients (3). Another rarely spoken about property of Masteron is that it is actually a weak (though useful) anti-estrogen, and that’s where a lot of its “hardening” properties probably come from, and why it’s so useful in precontest cycles. Masteron may actually interact with the aromatase enzyme to inhibit aromatization (conversion/metabolism) of other steroids into estrogen. Additionally, Masteron seems to be able to interact with estrogen at the receptor site. (1)(2) I think this explains it’s “hardening” properties, because with less estrogen in your body, you’ll be holding less water and therefore appear harder. This is also why people say it “only works” at a low bodyfat percentage. When you take the water retention off of a fat person, you still have a (dryer) fat person. And if you aren’t using a lot of different aromatizable drugs (and are using them in low doses), or drugs that potentiate estrogen’s effects (and I’m thinking about the 19-nor family here) then Masteron is likely to be the only anti-estrogen you need. Masteron Enanthate is especially effective for this purpose because it has a very long active life and relatively constant blood plasma levels.
To strengthen the anabolic properties of testosterone, more than 100 synthetic steroid derivatives have been described for human purposes. The anabolic effect promotes protein synthesis, muscle growth and erythropoiesis. In clinical practice, substances with anabolic effect are needed to overcome various catabolic states. However, none of these compounds are devoid of androgenicity. Androgenic and anabolic properties of anabolic steroids cannot be totally separated. Therefore, it is more appropriate to use the term anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS).
