We herein report the androgenic-anabolic activities of some synthesized substituted androstano[17,16-c]pyrazoline (steroidal structure). Twenty six steroid derivatives 1-11 containing acetyl, ester, methoxy and oxazole moieties attached to a steroid moiety were conveniently synthesized and screened for their androgenic anabolic activities. Synthetic steroid structures linked to a different function groups seem to be a promising approach in the search for novel leads for potent androgenic agents. The detailed synthetic pathways of obtained compounds and androgenic activities were reported.

Keywords : Steroid derivatives, androstanopyrazolines, androstanoisoxazoles, androgenic anabolic activities.
