The peripheral plasma levels of 20alpha-dihydroprogesterone (20alpha-DHP), progesterone (P) and 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) were measured by radioimmunoassay techniques in 440 samples during normal human pregnancy between weeks 4 and 41. The levels of 20alpha--DHP in plasma from the 4th to the 6th week were between 6.0 and 6.6 ng/ml. From then until the(More)

Maternal and foetal plasma collected at normal delivery and at elective caesarean section was assayed for sex steroid levels. Foetal cord plasma concentrations of progesterone, 17-hydroxyprogesterone, oestrone and oestriol were higher than maternal values at normal delivery, whereas oestradiol levels were lower. Oestrone concentrations were higher than(More)
