This within-person, crossover, 2-condition, placebo-controlled study compares the impact of two perimenstrual conditions on severity of suicidal symptoms in females with past-month suicida...
The study aims to asses the effects of micronized (MIC) and nanoparticulate (NANO) transdermal hormone therapy (THT) on blood pressure, ultra-sensitive C-reactive protein (CRP), and cardio...
Female inability to conceive a child. The purpose of this prospective randomized, double-blinded, double dummy, two-arm cross-over study is to investigate the difference on histological, t...
This is a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study of the effects of transdermal estradiol versus placebo on cognitive flexibility, reward processing, and eating disorder patholo...
We hypothesize that the addition of oral naproxen or transdermal estradiol will decrease the number of days of unscheduled bleeding experienced by first-time users of the levonorgestrel in...
The placebo effect alongside the detrimental nocebo and lessebo effects associated with the use of placebos are well-recognized phenomena. Research conducted in the last two decades has demonstrated t...
Placebos have been used extensively by vast numbers of physicians, in a majority of clinical trials. Placebo effects involve behavioral, psychological and genetic factors, and have been subject to eth...
Which progesterone vaginal pessary dose regimen induces adequate secretory transformation of the endometrium, in comparison with progesterone vaginal gel and placebo?
The effect of combined oral contraceptives (COC) on female sexuality has long been a matter of discussion, but placebo-controlled studies are lacking. Thus, the aim of the present study was to investi...
In a systematic review and meta-analysis we summarize the available evidence on how frequently general practitioners/family physicians (GPs) use pure placebos (e.g., placebo pills) and non-specific th...
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
ETHINYL ESTRADIOL and NORGESTREL given in fixed proportions. It has proved to be an effective contraceptive (CONTRACEPTIVES, ORAL, COMBINED).

Specific proteins found in or on cells of progesterone target tissues that specifically combine with progesterone. The cytosol progesterone-receptor complex then associates with the nucleic acids to initiate protein synthesis. There are two kinds of progesterone receptors, A and B. Both are induced by estrogen and have short half-lives.
