Testosterone is a steroid hormone secreted in large amounts by the testicles of males and the ovaries of females. Adrenal glands also secrete testosterone in small amounts. It is the major male sex hormone which plays a key role in the development of testis and prostate organs. Secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle, bone mass, and body hair growth are promoted through the release of testosterone. It is also essential in the prevention of osteoporosis.Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submittedÂ manuscriptsÂ and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the acceptedÂ standardsÂ of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
