A number of experiments were carried out in the nineteenth century by Brown-Sequard, a French physiologist, in which he injected the aqueous extracts from animal testes into himself as well as into a range of animals.
In 1889 Brown-Sequard reported his observations, declaring that he had reversed his own decline into old age. Although Brown-Sequard’s discoveries were not accepted because of the lack of experimental controls, his idea that
the testes release physiologically active substances proved to be true (Kochakian, 1993a). His self-experimentation provided the basis for further studies into the effects of ingestion of testicular extracts, and ultimately the effects of testosterone, upon people.
Surgeons developed the technique of transplanting human and animal (e.g. monkeys) testes into patients whose testes were damaged or dysfunctional.
Claims were made that these operations had relieved pain and discomfort and promoted bodily well-being in hundreds of patients. People began to seek treatment for all manner of disorders: senility, asthma, epilepsy, diabetes, impotence, tuberculosis, paranoia, gangrene and more (Hoberman and Yesalis, 1995).
However, this method of treatment was not accepted by the scientific community, who did not believe many of
the claims made. An international committee that was appointed to investigate these claims concluded that claims of rejuvenation as a result of testicular transplantation were unfounded (Parkes, 1985).
Subsequent to the research outlined above, testosterone has been isolated and its structure discovered.
