Abstract

The following steroids have been identified by combined gas chromatography-mass spectrometry in a urine specimen collected from a newborn chimpanzee; 5-androstene-3β, 17α-diol, 3β,16α (and 16β)-dihydroxy-5-androsten-17-one, 5-androstene-3β, 16α, 17β-triol, 5-androstene-3β, 16β, 17α-triol, 5-pregnene-3β, 20α-diol, 5-pregnene-3β, 20α, 21-triol, 3β,21-dihydroxy-5-pregnen-20-one, 3β, 16α-dihydroxy-5-pregnen-20-one, 5-Piegnene-3β, 16α,20α, 21-tetrol, 5-pregnene-3β,17α, 20ξ, 21-tetrol androstenetriolones and androstenetetrols. Almost all the steroids detected have previously been found in urine from human infants.
