Steroid Drugs

 There is an important class of natural compounds derived from steroid compounds in the four-ring structure. These compounds, called steroids, exist in all plants and animals. The most abundant steroid in animals is cholesterol C27H46O. The human body can synthesize cholesterol, and it is easy to absorb the cholesterol in food through the intestinal wall. Cholesterol is associated with the formation of gallstones, which can also harden the arteries. The biochemical changes and degradation of cholesterol produce many of the most important steroids in human biochemistry.
