Antitumor activity of a new highly active promising gestagen 17alpha-acetoxy-3beta-butanoyloxy-6-methyl-pregna-4,6-dien-20-one (butagest) was studied in mice with model cervical carcinoma (RShM-5). The reference drug was medroxyprogesteron acetate (MPA, Depo Provera) used in clinics. The new preparation introduced perorally in a dose of 1 mg per mice inhibited the model tumor growth by 73%, which was 18% (p < 0.01) more effective than the action of the reference drug MPA. The effect of the new… Expand

Effect of progesterone and its synthetic analogues on the activity of mitochondrial permeability transition pore in isolated rat liver mitochondria.
TLDR
Data indicate that buterol interacts with thiol groups, which explains its inhibitory effect not only on the mitochondrial pore but also on the transport system of xenobiotics in tumor cells in whichbuterol reduces the multidrug resistance. Expand
