ABSTRACT

Testosterone (T) and 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) concentrations in spermatic and peripheral venous blood obtained from six men have been measured by radioimmunoassay and competitive protein binding assay respectively. The concentrations (mean ± sd) of DHT in the spermatic vein (0.64 ± 0.33 μg/100 ml) were higher than that found in the cubital vein (0.025 ± 0.01 μg/100 ml). These results demonstrate the production of DHT by the human testis.
