The effect of the aromatase inhibitor, rogletimide (pyridoglutethimide), on guinea pig adrenal cell steroidogenesis and placental microsomal aromatase activity: comparison with aminoglutethimide and CGS 16949A.

A dispersed guinea pig adrenal system has been used to study the effect of the aromatase inhibitor rogletimide (RGL) on adrenal steroidogenesis. The ACTH-stimulated release of cortisol, 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) and androstenedione (A) was measured following exposure of adrenal cells to RGL, or the other aromatase inhibitors aminoglutethimide (AG) and… CONTINUE READING
