The effect of chlormadinone acetate on odontogenic differentiation of human dental pulp cells: in vitro study


BACKGROUND Chlormadinone acetate (CMA) is a derivative of progesterone and is used as an oral contraceptive. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of CMA on odontogenic differentiation and mineralization of human dental pulp cells (hDPCs) and related signaling pathways.
