AndroForte 5 is bioequivalent to Testogel (branded as Androgel in the USA)

It’s official – AndroForte 5 testosteone cream (Lawley Pharmaceuticals, Australia) is bioequivalent with Testogel (also branded as Androgel in the USA).
The medical paper published in January 2016 in the prestigious medical journal Andrology showed the two products  achieved essentially the same absorption profile over 24 hrs at the start of treatment and again after one months treatment.
In scientific terms, if two products are said to be bioequivalent it means that they would be expected to be, for all intents and purposes, the same.

The study was undertaken in hypogonadal men with either pituitary disorder or testicular failure.
The men in the study used one product  to the torso for a period of 30 days then after a wash-out period applied the other product for 30 days.
24 hr blood samples were taken on day 1 and day 30. The results showed the two products to be bioequivalent.
Testogel (Androgel) is the world’s largest selling testosterone product with over $3 billion in sales annually.
