Optimal Result: 0.15 - 0.65 Ratio.

While research is limited in the significance of 5-alpha or 5-beta reductase activity in the glucocorticoids, it can serve as an additional screening tool for overall preference for 5-alpha or 5-beta reductase activity within the androgen and progesterone pathways.
