Gene context of MEDROGESTONE

  • Medrogestone has a biphasic effect on sulfotransferase activity in both cell lines [5].
  • This effect may be due to glucocorticoid receptor mediated actions of medrogestone on bone [16].
  • More 5 alpha-DHT was released into the medium from the testes mince in the presence of hCG, while the addition of 10 or 50 micrometers of Colprone inhibited 5 alpha-DHT release as compared to hCG controls [14].
  • Medrogestone had a synergistic effect on the lowering of FSH, LH and PRL [10].
  • RFA Argus, the Air Training Ship, was identified as the potential Primary Casualty Reception Ship (PCRS) and at the end of September 1990 plans were drawn up to convert the forward hangar into a two-storey 100-bed hospital in collective protection (COLPRO) [17].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of MEDROGESTONE

  • After 24 h of the cell culture, Medrogestone significantly inhibits this transformation in a dose-dependent manner by 39% and 80% at 5 x 10(-8) M and 5 x 10(-5) M, respectively in T-47D cells; the effect is less intense in MCF-7 cells: 25% and 55% respectively [2].
  • Twenty patients, aged 30-60 yr, who had undergone bilateral ovariectomy, were treated orally with 5 mg medrogestone (6,17-dimethylpregna-4,6-diene-3,20-dione) and 1.25 mg conjugated oestrogens per day, according to a constant dosage pattern during the cycle (22 + 6 days) [18].
  • Determination of medrogestone in plasma by high-performance liquid chromatography [19].
  • The limit of quantitative concentration for medrogestone in HPLC was 1 ng/ml [19].
  • Argus arrived in the Gulf in mid-November as the PCRS with, all in COLPRO, a 10-bed intensive care unit (ICU), a 14-bed high dependency unit (HDU), a 76-bed low dependency unit (LDU) plus four operating tables in two theatres with full support services [17].
