On April 8, 1997, after buying the remaining % of Roussel-Uclaf stock in early 1997,  Hoechst AG ( US$30 (equivalent to $ in 2016) billion annual revenue) announced the end of its manufacture and sale of Mifegyne ( US$ (equivalent to $ in 2016) million annual revenue) and the transfer of all rights for medical uses of mifepristone outside of the United States to Exelgyn ., a new single-product company immune to antiabortion boycotts, whose CEO was former Roussel-Uclaf CEO Édouard Sakiz.  In 1999, Exelgyn won approval of Mifegyne in 11 additional countries, and in 28 more countries over the following decade. 
The immediate effects of AAS in the brain are mediated by their binding to androgen (male sex hormone) and estrogen (female sex hormone) receptors on the surface of a cell. This AAS–receptor complex can then shuttle into the cell nucleus to influence patterns of gene expression. Because of this, the acute effects of AAS in the brain are substantially different from those of other drugs of abuse. The most important difference is that AAS are not euphorigenic, meaning they do not trigger rapid increases in the neurotransmitter dopamine , which is responsible for the “high” that often drives substance abuse behaviors. However, long-term use of AAS can eventually have an impact on some of the same brain pathways and chemicals—such as dopamine, serotonin, and opioid systems—that are affected by other drugs of abuse. Considering the combined effect of their complex direct and indirect actions, it is not surprising that AAS can affect mood and behavior in significant ways.
No charges have been filed yet, but a source close to the gym tells New Times that Rodriguez was affiliated with the website Wellness Fitness & Nutrition Network . The site was allegedly run in part out of a space above the gym, though New Times could find no online links between Rodriguez and the site.

A woman who answered the phone there confirmed Rodriguez is connected to the website and promised to pass along a message to him; she said the site was still up and running and she had not spoken to any federal agents.
