17b-Hydroxy-2a-methyl-5a-androstan-3-one propionate, also known as drostanolone propionate, is a synthetic anabolic-androgenic steroid. It has similar properties to dihydrotestosterone. It had been used for the treatment of breast cancer in the past. However, it is now mainly used by athletes and bodybuilder as an anabolic steroid. It has two major effects including enhancing the physical/athletic performance (such as endurance and strength) and enhancing physical health (muscle buildup and fat loss).
