The characterization of Prosorhynchus crucibulum (Rudolphi, 1819) Odhner, 1905 egg and miracidium is important in order to better understand the transmission dynamics between the definitive host and the primary host, the mussel. In this way, the objective of this work was to study the miracidia morphology, in order to evaluate if this species belongs to the… (More)
The synthesis of 13 new esters of testosterone is described, with the esterifying acids bearing acetylenic, olefinic, or polyunsaturated functions in the chain, for evaluation as long-acting androgens.
The chemical synthesis and physical data of several new esters of testosterone (17 beta-hydroxyandrost-4-en-3-one), which contain either a halogeno or an alkoxy substituent in the acid chain, are reported.
The chemical synthesis and physical data of several new esters of norethisterone (17 alpha-ethynyl-17 beta-hydroxyestr-4-en-3-one) are reported, which contain either a chloro- or an alkoxy-group as a substituent in the acid side-chain.
Some new derivatives of norethisterone (17 alpha-ethynyl-17 beta-hydroxyestr-4-en-3-one) are described in which the 17 beta-hydroxyl group of the steroid is esterified with polyunsaturated aliphatic acids. The potential of these compounds as long-acting contraceptive agents has been evaluated.
Esters of levonorgestrel (13 beta-ethyl-17 beta-ethynyl-17 beta-hydroxygon-4-en-3-one) with a variety of unsaturated carboxylic acids have been synthesized for evaluation as potential long-acting, injectable contraceptive agents.
The synthesis of esters of norethisterone (17 alpha-ethynyl-17 beta-hydroxy-estr-4-en-3-one) with acids containing a benzene ring is described, two methods of esterification being compared in terms of yield and convenience. The activities of these esters as long-acting contraceptive agents have been evaluated.
The synthesis of nine new esters of norethisterone (17 alpha-ethynyl-17 beta-hydroxyestr-4-en-3-one) is described, with the esterifying acids bearing an acetylenic or olefinic function in a chain of eight or nine carbon atoms, for evaluation as long-acting contraceptive agents.
Sterols characterized by an allylic hydroxyl group in the side chain, such as stigmasta-5,28-diene-3 beta, 24 epsilon-diol (1), cholesta-5,23-diene-3 beta,25-diol (2) and cholesta-5,25-diene-3 beta,24 epsilon-diol (3), have been identified several times in various marine algae. Their origin was considered as doubtful: they could have been bona fide… (More)
