SNIPPET from the AJP study posted above:

"[T]hese findings may have important consequences for public
health. In a given year, about 8% of American men over the age of
30 years exhibit major depressive disorder (35), and many of these
cases will be partially or completely refractory to an adequate
trial of antidepressant medication (16). If this subgroup with
refractory depression has a 43% prevalence of low testosterone
levels, as found in the present study, then hundreds of thousands
of men in a given year might at least theoretically be candidates
for testosterone supplementation to treat depression."
