Cloxotestosterone (INN), also known as 17-chloral hemiacetal testosterone, is an androgen and anabolic steroid that was never marketed.[1] It is an ether of testosterone, specifically, the 17-chloral hemiacetal ether of testosterone, and putatively acts as a prodrug of testosterone.[1] An acetate ester of cloxotestosterone, cloxotestosterone acetate (INN) (brand name Caprosem), has been marketed.[1] Cloxotestosterone acetate is administered via intramuscular injection and lasts 4 to 6 weeks with a single administration.[2]
