enables simultaneous determination of multiple steroids at very low concentrations in a single analytical run. Although many papers have been published on LC–MS/MS assays that measure one or a few steroid hormones, only few papers have reported methods

assessment is not sensitive enough to identify subtle over- and under-treatment. Assay of the intermediates 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17OHP) and androstenedione is often used, but results are often difficult to interpret as cross-reactivity between steroids

membrane assay serves as a short-term in vivo model, which can be easily used prior to costly, time-consuming and elaborate mouse models. The avian chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) assay has been utilised as a cancer model system for more than a century ( 3
