Table of Contents
Mechanism of action:-
It acts by binding to androgen receptors. After binding to androgen receptors, Target genes are activated, leading to increased translation of proteins, which then increases growth of muscles and tissue repair. Additionally, it reduces breakdown of proteins.

- Antiestrogens like aromatase inhibitors (e.g., anastrozole) and selective estrogen receptor modulators (e.gTamoxifen, raloxifene) can interfere with and prevent the estrogenic effects of nandrolone decanoate.
- This is opposite to the case of most other AAS, which are either potentiated by 5α-reductase in such tissues or are not substrates of 5α-reductase.
- Antiandrogens like cyproterone acetate, spironolactone, and bicalutamide can block both the anabolic and androgenic effects of AAS like nandrolone decanoate.
