The move is based on the recent publication of two separate studies that suggested an increased risk of heart attacks in men taking testosterone, a hormone essential to male growth.

The agency said it has not concluded that testosterone increases the risk of cardiac events, but said it is issuing an alert "while we continue to evaluate the information from these studies and other available data."
