The purpose of this study is to determine if progesterone treatment safely reduces brain swelling and damage after injury.
The primary purpose of this study is to determine the effects of a full dose (300 mg at hs) of oral micronized progesterone (OMP) on vasomotor symptoms [VMS] (hot flushes/night sweats), on...
In this randomized, double blind, unbalanced three way crossover trial, four lipid emulsions will be assessed on three study days. The lipid emulsions (LEs) have been engineered so that th...
Until now very little information exists regarding the early luteal serum progesterone profile after Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) trigger. This pilot-study will help characterize the...
to examine if a natural daytime variation in progesterone levels may explain parts of the inconsistent findings from studies reporting divergent results concerning this matter and will be ...
Progesterone has been shown to be cerebroprotective in different experimental models of brain injuries and neurodegenerative diseases. The preclinical data provided great hope for its use in humans. T...
The field of neuroprotection after brain injuries has been littered with failed clinical trials. Finding a safe and effective treatment for acute traumatic brain injury remains a serious unmet medical...
The loss of progesterone during menopause is linked to sleep complaints of the affected women. Previously we demonstrated sleep promoting effects of oral progesterone replacement in postmenopausal wom...
Vaginal progesterone is an effective alternative to systemic administration by oral or intramuscular use. The first-pass effect is reviewed, as are the most common uses for this route of delivery. Thi...
The effectiveness of vaginal progesterone for maintenance tocolysis after arrested preterm labor remains controversial. Myometrial contractility can be assessed objectively and non-invasively after pr...
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.
Steroidal compounds related to PROGESTERONE, the major mammalian progestational hormone. Progesterone congeners include important progesterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with progestational activities.
The major progestational steroid that is secreted primarily by the CORPUS LUTEUM and the PLACENTA. Progesterone acts on the UTERUS, the MAMMARY GLANDS and the BRAIN. It is required in EMBRYO IMPLANTATION; PREGNANCY maintenance, and the development of mammary tissue for MILK production. Progesterone, converted from PREGNENOLONE, also serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.
A glycoprotein migrating as alpha 1-globulin, molecular weight 70,000 to 120,000. The protein, which is present in increased amounts in the plasma during pregnancy, binds mainly progesterone, with other steroids including testosterone competing weakly.
An enzyme that catalyzes the reduction of a 3 beta-hydroxy-delta(5)-steroid to 3-oxo-delta(4)-steroid in the presence of NAD. It converts pregnenolone to progesterone and dehydroepiandrosterone to androstenedione. EC 22.214.171.124.
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
