Effects of (15S)-15-methyl prostaglandin E2 alpha methyl ester and estrogens upon the corpus luteum and conceptus of the rhesus monkey.

Abstract

The corpus luteum inhibiting activity of (15S)-15-methyl prostaglandin F2 alpha methyl ester (15M-PGF2 alpha) was determined when given in combination with estrogens. Administration of 15M-PGF2 alpha alone (3 injections of 500 microgram each) to monkeys concomitantly receiving hCG reduced serum progesterone concentrations to 50% of values observed in… (More)
