Besides the natural progestin, progesterone, there are different classes of progestins, such as retroprogesterone (i.e. dydrogesterone), progesterone derivatives (i.e. medrogestone) 17alpha-hydroxyprogesterone derivatives (i.e. chlormadinone acetate, cyproterone acetate, medroxyprogesterone acetate, megestrol acetate), 19-norprogesterone derivatives (i.e.(More)
BACKGROUND Capecitabine is a rationally designed oral, tumor-activated fluoropyrimidine carbamate with high activity in metastatic breast cancer. This multicenter phase II study was designed to evaluate further the efficacy and safety of capecitabine in patients with metastatic breast cancer previously treated with a taxane-containing regimen.

A Phase I dose escalation and pharmacokinetic study of the alkylating cytotoxic agent treosulfan was conducted to evaluate the maximum tolerated dose and the dose-limiting toxicities in patients with advanced malignancies rescued by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. Twenty-two patients (15 ovarian and 7 other carcinomas/lymphomas) with(More)
Plasma levels of ethynylestradiol (EE), EE sulphate (EES), EE glucuronide (EEG) and prolactin were measured in women up to 72 h following the oral administration of 3 mg of EE. The decline in plasma EE levels showed a sharp discontinuity at 10 h which is assumed to be due to the beginning of enterohepatic circulation (EHC). After this event, an apparently(More)
BACKGROUND The current medical treatment of endometriosis, a common gynaecological disease, is still associated with a high recurrence rate. To establish an appropriate in-vivo model to evaluate new therapeutic strategies we validated the nude mouse model for the intraperitoneal cultivation of human endometrial tissue. METHODS Human endometrium of the(More)
Endometriosis is a chronic disease primarily affecting women of childbearing age, in which endometriotic lesions form outside the uterus, typically leading to painful symptoms, fatigue, and infertility. The symptoms of endometriosis may cause significant impairment in quality of life and represent a substantial economic burden to patients, families, and(More)
High-dose dienogest (20 mg/day) was used for the treatment of endometriosis in women aged 18-52 years after laparoscopic and histological diagnosis of endometriosis and staging according to the revised American Fertility Society criteria. Treatment efficacy was analyzed objectively by second-look laparoscopy, and serum hormone measurements and evaluation of(More)
Endometriosis is thought to be an ovarian-dependent benign disease that affects up to 12% of women during their reproductive life. For the past ten years the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)-agonists have been proved effective and safe drugs in the treatment of endometriosis. Nevertheless, gestagens such as lynestrenol still remain the most often used(More)
The purpose of this randomized phase III trial was to study whether medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) maintenance treatment prolongs the time to progression in advanced breast cancer patients responding to an induction chemotherapy. Patients with progressive advanced breast cancer previously untreated with anthracylines and progestins were given epirubicin(More)
For treating signs of androgenisation (seborrhoea, acne, hirsutism, alopecia) ethinylestradiol in combination with an antiandrogenic progestin is the treatment of choice in adolescents and females throughout the reproductive years, since these combinations are also highly suitable for contraception. Under long-term treatment a favourable effect on(More)
