Dosages of either 1 or 2 mg daily of 16β-hydroxy-dehydroepiandrosterone, given to mononephretomized, salt-loaded female rats, had no detectable effect upon saline consumption, blood pressure, kallikrein excretion or heart and kidney weight. Its alleged mineralocorticoid properties, as judged by these criteria, were not demonstrable.
