Progesterone is an important hormone responsible, among others, for maintaining pregnancy via inhibition of uterus muscles activity; thus, following its concentration levels in pregnant women is of immense importance in the endeavor to prevent premature birth. In this work, the nanostructured bismuth film electrode (nsBiFE) was studied for detection of progesterone in neutral medium. Due to the ability to accumulate progesterone at the nsBiFE, the adsorptive cathodic stripping voltammetry was…

Electrochemical evaluation of the desloratadine at bismuth film electrode in the presence of cationic surfactant: Highly sensitive determination in pharmaceuticals and human urine by Linear sweep-cathodic stripping voltammetry
It was found that the addition of cationic surfactants increased the reduction current signal of desloratadine, while anionic (sodium dodecylsulfate) and nonionic (Tween 80) surfactant were found to have an adverse effect.

Predictive power progesterone combined with beta human chorionic gonadotropin measurements in the outcome of threatened miscarriage
Progesterone combined with β-HCG measurements may be useful for predicting the outcome of threatened miscarriage and a combination of two biochemical parameters shows substantial improvement over a single-marker strategy.
