Influence of 5alpha- and 5beta-reduced progestins on the contractility of isolated human myometrium at term.

Abstract

It is very well known that progesterone induces uterine relaxation on myometrium contractile activity. However, little attention has been paid to the effect induced by its metabolites on human uterine contractility. Therefore, we set out to analyze the potential relaxing effect of some 5alpha- and 5beta-reduced progesterone derivatives on the spontaneous… (More)
