Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time-average (Cavg) Steady State Testosterone Concentration Over 24 Hours [ Time Frame: Day 28/29 ]
    A 24-hour pharmacokinetic sampling was performed on Day 28/29 after the start of dosing.

Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: April 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2010
Primary Completion Date: September 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Testosterone Transdermal Systems
Drug: Testerone Transdermal System
Transdermal testosterone applied daily for 4 weeks
Other Name: Testosterone

Detailed Description:
Subjects will receive testosterone for 4 weeks. Based on a single morning testosterone measurement performed at the end of Week 1, the dosage can be titrated up or down to the next dose level to maintain testosterone levels in the normal range. At the end of 4 weeks of treatment, a pharmacokinetic profile for total testosterone and metabolites will be obtained.
