There were two possibilities: either CPA inhibited the androgen biosynthesis in the fetal testes or this compound inhibited the action of androgens in one way or another directly at the target organ level.

The parameters used for androgenicity were seminal vesicle and prostate weights. As can be seen, the prostate and seminal vesicle weights in castrated animals can be maintained by testosterone propionate.
