Abstract

The adrenal steroid dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulfate ester, DHEA sulfate, are intriguing because of their dramatic age-relatedcirculating decline and demonstrated salutary actions in animal models. This has led to the hypothesis that some of the degenerative complications of the aging process in man may be related to a relative deficit in these steroids. This remains a hypothesis, and, unfortunately, DHEA is now available openly in the market place and is being touted asa cure all and fountain of youth by entrepreneurs desiring profit. Itis the aim of this review to synthesize the results of DHEA studies performed in men and women so that a proper perspective can be reached regarding its putative medicinal value.
