Modulation of oestrogenic effects by progesterone antagonists in the rat uterus. (1/1154)

Antiprogestins can modulate oestrogenic effects in various oestrogen-dependent tissues, dependent on species, tissue, dose and duration of treatment. Enhanced oestrogenic responses to mifepristone and onapristone occur in vitro and in vivo. However, the antiprogestins mifepristone, onapristone, and ZK 137 316 can block the ability of oestradiol to increase endometrial growth in non-human primates. Our purposes were firstly, to decide whether mifepristone and onapristone had direct oestrogenic activity in vitro and in the uterus of spayed and immature rats, and secondly, to discover whether antiprogestins exhibit inhibitory effects on oestrogen action in the uterus in spayed, oestrogen-substituted rats. In transactivation assays, mifepristone induced oestrogenic response, whereas onapristone had only marginal effects on reporter gene transcription. In immature rats, onapristone and mifepristone markedly increased uterine weights, and onapristone, but not mifepristone significantly enhanced endometrial luminal epithelial height, a sensitive oestrogen parameter. Conversely, in spayed and adrenalectomized rats, neither onapristone nor mifepristone changed uterine weights or endometrial morphology, indicating that their effects in immature rats were indirect. In spayed, oestrogen-substituted rats, antiprogestins did not block oestradiol-stimulated endometrial growth and luminal and glandular epithelium were stimulated more after antiprogestin plus oestrogen, than after oestradiol alone. All compounds induced compaction of the uterine stroma. In spayed rats, onapristone and some other 13alpha-configured (type 1) antagonists (ZK 135 569, ZK 131 535) reduced oestradiol-stimulated myometrial proliferation and induced an overall uterine weight reduction in animals treated with oestrogen and antiprogestins, in comparison with oestradiol-treated controls. 13beta- configured (type II) antagonists, including mifepristone, lilopristone and ZK 112 993, were not effective. In the uteri of spayed rats, onapristone was also found to enhance the oestradiol-stimulatory effect on expression of the oestrogen-dependent proto-oncogene, c-fos. In conclusion, antiprogestins do not inhibit, but rather enhance, oestrogen-induced uterine glandular and luminal epithelium in spayed rats, contrary to their effects in primates. The rat model is unsuitable to study endometrial antiproliferative effects of antiprogestins in primate uteri.  (+info)

Altered leucocyte trafficking and suppressed tumour necrosis factor alpha release from peripheral blood monocytes after intra-articular glucocorticoid treatment. (2/1154)

OBJECTIVES: A generalised transient improvement may follow intra-articular administration of glucocorticoids to patients with inflammatory arthropathy. This may represent a systemic anti-inflammatory effect of glucocorticoid released from the joint, mediated through processes such as altered leucocyte trafficking or suppressed release of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Patients, who had received intra-articular injections of glucocorticoids were therefore studied for evidence of these two systemic effects. METHODS: Patients with rheumatoid arthritis were studied. Peripheral blood leucocyte counts, tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) release by peripheral blood monocytes, blood cortisol concentrations, and blood methylprednisolone concentration were measured for 96 hours after intra-articular injection of methylprednisolone acetate. RESULTS: Measurable concentrations of methylprednisolone were present in blood for up to 96 hours after injection. Significant suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis persisted throughout this time. Altered monocyte and lymphocyte trafficking, as evidenced by peripheral blood monocytopenia and lymphopenia, was apparent by four hours after injection and resolved in concordance with the elimination of methylprednisolone. Granulocytosis was observed at 24 and 48 hours. Release of TNF alpha by endotoxin stimulated peripheral blood monocytes was suppressed at four hours and thereafter. Suppression was maximal at eight hours and was largely reversed by the glucocorticoid antagonist, mifepristone. CONCLUSIONS: After intra-articular injection of methylprednisolone, blood concentrations of glucocorticoid are sufficient to suppress monocyte TNF alpha release for at least four days and to transiently alter leucocyte trafficking. These effects help to explain the transient systemic response to intra-articular glucocorticoids. Suppression of TNF alpha is principally a direct glucocorticoid effect, rather than a consequence of other methylprednisolone induced changes to blood composition.  (+info)

Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide, interleukin-6 and glucocorticoids regulate the release of vascular endothelial growth factor in pituitary folliculostellate cells. (3/1154)

There is increasing evidence that hormones play an important role in the control of endothelial cell function and growth by regulating the production of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). VEGF regulates vascular permeability and represents the most powerful growth factor for endothelial cells. In the normal anterior pituitary, VEGF has been detected only in folliculostellate (FS) cells. In the present study, the regulation of the release of VEGF from FS-like mouse TtT/GF cells, and from FS cells of rat pituitary monolayer cell cultures was investigated using a specific VEGF ELISA. Basal release of VEGF was demonstrated in cultures of both TtT/GF cells and rat pituitary cells. Interestingly, the VEGF secretion was stimulated by both forms of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP-38 and PACAP-27), indicating that this hypothalamic peptide regulates endothelial cell function and growth within the pituitary. VEGF secretion was also stimulated by interleukin-6 (IL-6) whereas basal, IL-6- and PACAP-stimulated secretion was inhibited by the synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone. The inhibitory action of dexamethasone was reversed by the glucocorticoid receptor antagonist RU486, suggesting that in FS cells functional glucocorticoid receptors mediate the inhibitory action of glucocorticoids on the VEGF secretion. The endocrine and auto-/paracrine control of VEGF production in pituitary FS cells by PACAP, IL-6 and glucocorticoids may play an important role both in angiogenesis and vascular permeability regulation within the pituitary under physiological and pathophysiological conditions.  (+info)

Gestational regulation of granulocyte-colony stimulating factor receptor expression in the human placenta. (4/1154)

A number of cytokines and their receptors are abundantly expressed at the materno-fetal interface and are thought to have a function in the regulation of placentation. Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) is expressed by stromal cells in both placental tissue and maternal decidua throughout placentation. In this study, we examined the expression of placental G-CSF receptor (G-CSFR) mRNA and protein throughout gestation by ribonuclease protection assays, Western blotting, and immunohistochemistry. The major placental form of G-CSFR mRNA, corresponding to a membrane-bound form of the protein, was present in first-trimester placental tissues; levels decreased in second- and were highest in third-trimester placental tissues. Two placental G-CSFR molecules, 120 kDa and 150 kDa, were detected in first- and third-, but not second-, trimester tissues. The level of the 150-kDa G-CSFR was greater in the third- than in first-trimester samples. These differences were irrespective of whether or not the patients had received prostaglandin E1 analogues, prostaglandin E1 analogues and oxytocin, oxytocin alone, or mifepristone before labor. We demonstrated by immunohistochemistry that interstitial cytotrophoblast in first- and second-trimester decidual tissue and cytotrophoblast in term fetal membranes express G-CSFR. These data demonstrate that the expression of specific forms of placental G-CSFR is strictly cell type- and developmental stage-specific, and they suggest that G-CSFR may be important in decidual invasion of cytotrophoblast and in trophoblast function during placentation.  (+info)

Effects of glucocorticoids on maturation of pig oocytes and their subsequent fertilizing capacity in vitro. (5/1154)

The aim of this study was to assess the possible role of glucocorticoids in the maturation of pig oocytes and their subsequent fertilizing capacity in vitro. Pig cumulus-enclosed oocytes collected from prepubertal gilts were cultured in Waymouth MB752/1 medium supplemented with sodium pyruvate (50 microg/ml), LH (0.5 microg/ml), FSH (0.5 microg/ml), and estradiol-17beta (1 microg/ml) in the presence or absence of cortisol or dexamethasone (DEX) for 24 h; they then were cultured without hormonal supplements in the presence or absence of cortisol or DEX for an additional 16-24 h. Treatment of cumulus-enclosed or denuded oocytes with increasing concentrations of cortisol or DEX for 48 h resulted in a dose-response inhibition of germinal vesicle breakdown (GVB). Increasing duration (12-48 h) of treatment with DEX (10 microg/ml) led to a time-dependent inhibition of GVB, which achieved statistical significance by 12 h. The addition of DEX (10 microg/ml) to maturation medium immediately after culture or at 12 h, 24 h, or 36 h after culture also decreased the percentage of oocytes with GVB. When oocytes were exposed to DEX for 48 h, the maturation rate was reduced. The degree of this reduction was dependent on DEX, and a concentration of DEX higher than 0.1 microg/ml was needed. The inhibitory effect of DEX on the maturation of oocytes was prevented by the glucocorticoid receptor antagonist RU-486. Exposure of oocytes to DEX for 40 h did not prevent sperm penetration, affect the incidence of polyspermy, or decrease the ability of oocytes to form a male pronucleus. The intracellular concentration of glutathione (GSH) in cumulus-enclosed oocytes was 4.4 mM per oocyte. Exposure of oocytes to DEX (0.01-10 microg/ml) had no effect on GSH concentration. These results demonstrate that glucocorticoids directly inhibit the meiotic but not cytoplasmic maturation of pig oocytes in vitro. This inhibitory effect is not mediated through a decrease in the level of intracellular GSH.  (+info)

Once-a-month treatment with a combination of mifepristone and the prostaglandin analogue misoprostol. (6/1154)

In this two centre study, the efficacy of 200 mg mifepristone orally followed 48 h later by 0.4 mg misoprostol orally for menstrual regulation was investigated. The dose of mifepristone was taken the day before the expected day of menstruation. Each volunteer was planned to participate for up to 6 months. A plasma beta human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) was measured on the day of mifepristone intake. The study was disrupted prematurely due to low efficacy. In 125 treatment cycles the overall pregnancy rate was 17.6% (22 pregnancies) and the rate of continuing pregnancies (failure) was 4.0%. Eight women discontinued the study due to bleeding irregularities which were seen in 15 cycles (12%). These effects on bleeding pattern made the timing of treatment day difficult. Late luteal phase treatment with a combination of mifepristone and misoprostol is not adequately effective for menstrual regulation.  (+info)

The negative regulation of the rat aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 gene by glucocorticoids: involvement of a single imperfect palindromic glucocorticoid responsive element. (7/1154)

Glucocorticoids repressed the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-dependent induction of Class 3 aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH3) enzyme activity and mRNA levels in isolated rat hepatocytes by more than 50 to 80%, with a concentration-dependence consistent with the involvement of the glucocorticoid receptor (GR). No consistent effect on the low basal transcription rate was observed. This effect of glucocorticoids (GC) on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon induction was effectively antagonized at the mRNA and protein level by the GR antagonist RU38486. The response was cycloheximide-sensitive, because the protein synthesis inhibitor caused a GC-dependent superinduction of ALDH3 mRNA levels. This suggests that the effects of GC on this gene are complex and both positive and negative gene regulation is possible. The GC-response was recapitulated in HepG2 cells using transient transfection experiments with CAT reporter constructs containing 3.5 kb of 5'-flanking region from ALDH3. This ligand-dependent response was also observed when a chimeric GR (GR DNA-binding domain and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor ligand-binding domain) was used in place of GR in the presence of the peroxisome proliferator, nafenopin. A putative palindromic glucocorticoid-responsive element exists between -930 and -910 base pairs relative to the transcription start site. If this element was either deleted or mutated, the negative GC-response was completely lost, which suggests that this sequence is responsible, in part, for the negative regulation of the gene. Electrophoretic mobility shift analysis demonstrated that this palindromic glucocorticoid-responsive element is capable of forming a specific DNA-protein complex with human glucocorticoid receptor. In conclusion, the negative regulation of ALDH3 in rat liver is probably mediated through direct GR binding to its canonical responsive element.  (+info)

Conformational change in the human glucocorticoid receptor induced by ligand binding is altered by mutation of isoleucine 747 by a threonine. (8/1154)

Limited proteolysis experiments were performed to study conformation changes induced by ligand binding on in vitro produced wild-type and I747T mutant glucocorticoid receptors. Dexamethasone-induced conformational changes were characterized by two resistant proteolysis fragments of 30 and 27 kDa. Although dexamethasone binding affinity was only slightly altered by the I747T substitution (Roux, S., Terouanne, B., Balaguer, P., Loffreda-Jausons, N., Pons, M., Chambon, P., Gronemeyer, H., and Nicolas, J.-C. (1996) Mol. Endocrinol. 10, 1214-1226), higher dexamethasone concentrations were required to obtain the same proteolysis pattern. This difference was less marked when proteolysis experiments were conducted at 0 degrees C, indicating that a step of the conformational change after ligand binding was affected by the mutation. In contrast, RU486 binding to the wild-type receptor induced a different conformational change that was not affected by the mutation. Analysis of proteolysis fragments obtained in the presence of dexamethasone or RU486 indicated that the RU486-induced conformational change affected the C-terminal part of the ligand binding domain differently. These data suggest that the ligand-induced conformational change occurs via a multistep process. In the first step, characterized by compaction of the ligand binding domain, the mutation has no effect. The second step, which stabilizes the activated conformation and does not occur at 4 degrees C, seems to be a key element in the activation process that can be altered by the mutation. This step could involve modification of the helix H12 position, explaining why the conformation induced by RU486 is not affected by the mutation.  (+info)

RU-486 is an abortifacient which is used to terminate early pregnancy. It acts by blocking progesterone receptor. In our earlier study with progesterone, RU-486 was used as a progesterone receptor antagonist to find out the mechanism of progesterone action on melanoma cells. Results indicated that the effect of progesterone was not mediated through progesterone receptor. In the course of experiments, it was observed that RU-486 by itself inhibited mouse melanoma cell growth. Further research work with RU-486 showed a dose dependent inhibition of human melanoma cell growth. The mechanism of inhibition of cell growth was due to apoptosis and this effect of RU-486 was neither mediated through progesterone receptor nor glucocorticoid receptor. This in-vitro study suggested that melanoma also could be a target for RU-486 action, apart from breast, ovary and prostate cancers.

Mifepristone is a synthetic steroid compound used as a pharmaceutical. It is a progesterone receptor antagonist used as an abortifacient in the first months of pregnancy, and in smaller doses as an emergency contraceptive. Mifepristone is also a powerful glucocorticoid receptor antagonist, and has occasionally been used in refractory Cushings Syndrome (due to ectopic/neoplastic ACTH/Cortisol secretion). During early trials, it was known as RU-38486 or simply RU-486, its designation at the Roussel Uclaf company, which designed the drug. The drug was initially made available in France, and other countries then followed-often amid controversy. It is marketed under tradenames Mifegyne, Zacafemyl and Mifeprex. ...
Cushings syndrome refers to the clinical features caused by excess glucocorticoid hormones. Round, moon-shape face, excess hair, truncal obesity, weakness, amenorrhea, diabetes mellitus, depression, reduced libido and hypertension are some of the symptoms.. When administered at high doses mifepristone exhibits antiglucocorticoid activity and therefore maybe be useful alternative to currently used medical treatments. Antiglucocorticoid antagonists prevent the biological effects of glucocorticoids by competing with theses hormones for binding to the intra-cellular glucocorticoid receptor. Mifepristone is the first potent glucocorticoid antagonist active in vivo. Mifepristone can act as both an optimal antagonist (devoid of any agonist activity) or a suboptimal antagonist (partial agonist antagonist), depending on the response examined.. The antiglucocorticoid effect of Mifepristone has been studied in patients with Cushings syndrome. Case reports indicate that treatment with mifepristone 400 to ...

D) threatened abortion. A??. Yes, its A. Please explain. Mifepristone is abortifacient. It causes abortion by blocking progesterone.. But what if the ectopic site is not in connection with the uterine lumen. How will it be aborted?. I guess progesterone level in required to maintain the implantation.. A decrease in progesterone will cause it ectopic pregnancy to abort from that place.. Thats right.. Mifepristone is also sometimes used to end pregnancies when more than 49 days have passed since the womans last menstrual period; as an emergency contraceptive after unprotected sexual intercourse (morning-after pill); to treat tumors of the brain, endometriosis (growth of uterus tissue outside the uterus), or fibroids (noncancerous tumors in the uterus); or to induce labor (to help start the birth process in a pregnant woman).. ...

Fifty-eight trials were included in the review. The effectiveness outcomes below refer to failure to achieve complete abortion with the intended method unless otherwise stated. 1) Combined regimen mifepristone/prostaglandin: Mifepristone 600 mg compared to 200 mg shows similar effectiveness in achieving complete abortion (4 trials, RR 1.07, 95% CI 0.87 to 1.32). Misoprostol administered orally is less effective (more failures) than the vaginal route (RR 3.00, 95% CI 1.44 to 6.24) and may be associated with more frequent side effects such as nausea and diarrhoea. Sublingual and buccal routes were similarly effective compared to the vaginal route, but had higher rates of side effects. 2) Mifepristone alone is less effective when compared to the combined regimen mifepristone/prostaglandin (RR 3.76 95% CI 2.30 to 6.15). 3) Five trials compared prostaglandin alone to the combined regimen (mifepristone/prostaglandin). All but one reported higher effectiveness with the combined regimen. The results ...

Less than two years after the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of mifepristone for early nonsurgical abortion, a majority of the specialized clinics that provide surgical abortion services in the United States are now offering it. But while many abortion rights supporters had hoped that the drugs approval also would lead substantial numbers of new providers, particularly physicians in private practice, to take up medical abortion, for a number of reasons this has yet to occur.

Question - Took mifepristone. Is there anyway I can still keep the baby?. Ask a Doctor about Medical abortion, Ask an OBGYN, Maternal and Fetal Medicine
On October 21, 1988, in response to antiabortion protests and concerns of majority (54.5%) owner Hoechst AG of Germany, Roussel-Uclafs executives and board of directors voted 16 to 4 to stop distribution of mifepristone, which they announced on October 26, 1988.[7][11] Two days later, the French government ordered Roussel-Uclaf to distribute mifepristone in the interests of public health.[7][12] French Health Minister Claude Évin explained that: I could not permit the abortion debate to deprive women of a product that represents medical progress. From the moment Government approval for the drug was granted, RU-486 became the moral property of women, not just the property of a drug company.[7] Following use by 34,000 women in France from April 1988 to February 1990 of mifepristone distributed free of charge, Roussel-Uclaf began selling Mifegyne (mifepristone) to hospitals in France in February 1990 at a price (negotiated with the French government) of $48 per 600 mg dose.[7]. Mifegyne was ...

Background: Contact with cocaine-associated stimuli sets off a sturdy rise in circulating glucocorticoid amounts. the basolateral amygdala or the overlying posterior caudate-putamen (anatomical control area). Instantly thereafter, drug-seeking behavior (i.e., nonreinforced lever presses) was evaluated in the previously cocaine-paired framework and locomotor activity was evaluated in a book framework. Outcomes: Intra-basolateral amygdala, however, not intra-posterior caudate-putamen, mifepristone dose-dependently attenuated medication context-induced cocaine-seeking behavior in accordance with vehicle, in a way that responding was very similar to that seen in the extinction framework. On the other hand, mifepristone treatment didnt alter locomotor activity. Conclusions: These results claim that basolateral amygdala glucocorticoid receptor arousal is essential for medication context-induced motivation to get cocaine.

Mifepristone is a clinically-used antiprogestin. While it is known that mifepristone exerts its clinical effect by binding to the ligand binding domain of the progesterone receptor, there was no three-dimensional structure of it bound to the receptor. Mifepristone also binds to two other receptors within the body, which could have undesirable effects. Therefore, the aim of this research was to obtain a crystal structure of the mifepristone-progesterone receptor in order to better understand the specificity of the receptors ligand binding domain.. How did the synchrotron help? ...
Spontaneous premature rupture of membranes (PROM) occurs at term in approximately 10 percent of pregnancies. Induction of labor usually is indicated to prevent adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes. Management strategies for PROM at term include expectant management and active induction. Each strategy has risks and benefits. Various methods of labor induction are available, and oxytocin (Pitocin) is the pharmacologic agent most commonly used. Oral administration of mifepristone (Mifeprex) has been studied in other settings and has been shown to improve outcomes. However, it has not been studied in women with PROM at term. Wing and colleagues evaluated the use of oral mifepristone in women with PROM near term to determine whether it would hasten labor.. The trial compared the use of mifepristone with oxytocin in pregnant women who were at or beyond 36 weeks gestation and in whom PROM had occurred. Inclusion criteria for the study were singleton gestation, cephalic presentation, reactive fetal ...
The warning explains: Mifepristone is a potent antagonist of progesterone and cortisol via the progesterone and glucocorticoid (GR-II) receptors, respectively. The antiprogestational effects will result in the termination of pregnancy. Mifepristone, also known as RU-486, is a medication typically used in combination with misoprostol, to bring about an abortion. This combination is more than 95% effective during the first 50 days of pregnancy, says the Wikipedia entry on mifepristone. The World Health Organization currently promotes the drug as an abortion pill, calling it safe and effective. (Safe for the mother, not the child, of course.)

An MTP Kit is a most substantial Kit consisting of medications that can be effectively utilized as a part of the process in ceasing the development of the fetus of an early pregnancy of under nine weeks of incubation. This prescription is safe, steadfast when contrasted with other remedies, and simple and financially savvy. It contains two FDA-endorsed medications called Mifepristone or Misoprostol. Mifepristone is a particular enemy of progesterone hormone that demonstrates its healing impact by intruding on the supply of progesterone hormone. Progesterone hormone does a critical part in the upkeep of pregnancy, as it is responsible for offering the sustenance and oxygen to the developing baby. The decrease in the bodys progesterone hormone level causes the demise of a baby and the shedding of the endometrial divider, which in the results in the expulsion of a hatchling from the uterine divider. Mifepristone likewise makes the cervix unwind and widen, along these lines preparing for simple ...
Earlier this month, 20 Republicans in the Senate and 72 Republicans in the House of Representatives sent letters to the US Food and Drug Administration arguing that mifepristone - half of the two-drug combination commonly used for medication abortion - is so dangerous that it should be banned in the United States. If the FDA were to do this, it wouldnt just take mifepristone off the market. It would make using it illegal in the United States.. But heres what you need to understand about this attempt to eliminate abortion with pills: its based on lies.. For one thing, no matter what anti-abortion politicians claim, mifepristone is not dangerous. Only 14 deaths have been linked to it worldwide in the 20+ years its been available. By comparison, in the US alone, the maternal mortality rate just in 2018 was 17.4 people per 100,000 live births - which means that 658 Americans alone died two years ago from complications of pregnancy and childbirth.. For another, even if the FDA recalled ...
While many people focus solely on RU-486 (Mifepristone or Mifeprex), the so-called French abortion pill, the RU-486 technique actually uses two powerful synthetic hormones with the generic names of mifepristone and misoprostol (or other chemicals called prostaglandins) to chemically induce abortions in women five to nine weeks pregnant. The RU-486 procedure requires at least three trips to the abortion facility. In the first visit, the woman is given a physical exam, and if she has no obvious contra-indications (health conditions such as smoking, asthma, high blood pressure, obesity, etc., that could make the drug deadly to her), she takes the RU-486 pills. RU-486 blocks the action of progesterone, the natural hormone vital to maintaining the rich nutrient lining of the uterus. The developing baby is disrupted from his or her habitat and starves as the nutrient lining disintegrates. At a second visit 36 to 48 hours later, the woman is given a dose of artificial prostaglandins, usually ...

Usually women do not feel anything after taking the mifepristone (the first pill that is swallowed). A few women have reported experiencing some nausea, dizziness, or very light bleeding.. After taking misoprostol, you may initially feel side effects from the misoprostol, including a light fever, chills, diarrhea, and nausea. These are normal side effects and usually pass within a few hours or so of using the misoprostol.. The misoprostol will cause cramping and bleeding as the uterus contracts and pushes out the pregnancy. If a woman uses mifepristone plus misoprostol, the cramps and bleeding usually start within 1-5 hours after using the misoprostol, but some women have cramps sooner and some later; every womans body is different. If a woman is using misoprostol alone, most women will start bleeding within 7 hours after using misoprostol; however it may start several hours sooner or later. It can be different in every case..

For medical abortion prior to 12 weeks gestation, the World Heath Organization recommends mifepristone 200 mg by mouth followed 1-2 days later by misoprostol 800 mcg inside the cheek, vaginally, or under the tongue; misoprostol may be repeated to maximize success.[3] The success rate of mifepristone followed by misoprostol through 10 weeks pregnancy is 96.6%.[4] In another review of people up to 9 weeks gestation, mifepristone followed by various routs of misoprostol was associated with a successful abortion rate of over 95%; 1.1% experienced ongoing pregnancy.[5] Those who took misoprostol less than 24 hours after mifepristone had higher failures rates compared to women who waited 1-2 days. The National Abortion Federation (NAF) recommends a mifepristone and misoprostol combination regimen.[6] This is an option for people with gestations through 70 days. Mifepristone 200 mg is taken and followed by misoprostol 800 mcg buccally, vaginally, or sublingually 24 to 48 hours later. The early ...

One of the main drugs used in medicinal abortions, mifepristone, formerly known as RU-486, has been a subject of political strife for decades. In the 1990s, abortion opponents, fearing that it would make abortion too easy and acceptable, fought to prevent American approval of the drug, which had been widely used abroad.. In 2000, the F.D.A. approved the combination of mifepristone, a steroid that breaks down the lining of the uterus, and misoprostol, a prostaglandin that induces contractions. The agency did so based on clinical trials involving a large dose of mifepristone in the clinic, a dose of misoprostol in the clinic two days later, then a third clinic visit on the 14th day to verify that the embryo had aborted. The procedure was recommended for use through seven weeks of pregnancy.. Since then, studies have shown that mifepristone works as well at one-third the previously used dose, that it is safe to take the second medication at home, and that the procedure is safe and effective through ...

Using oral mifepristone followed two days later by misoprostol is better than using the latter alone for the medical management of missed miscarriage, trial results show. In the MifeMiso trial, 711 women with missed miscarriage in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy across 28 UK hospitals were randomised to either a 200mg oral dose of the anti-progesterone, mifepristone, or placebo. Women in both trial arms then had a single 800 microgram dose of a prostaglandin - oral, vaginal or sublingual misoprostol - two days later, the authors reported in the Lancet. Large UK trial favours priming with mifepristone followed by misoprostol for medical management.
Mifegymiso has been shown to be efficacious in terminating a developing intra-uterine pregnancy up to 49 days since the LMP. Data obtained from three pivotal studies support both the efficacy and safety of Mifegymiso and its proposed regimen of 200 mg oral mifepristone followed 24 to 48 hours later by 800 µg buccal misoprostol in pregnant women with a gestational age of 49 days or less. This regimen is well supported through the systematic review of the supportive literature. The mifepristone formulation proposed for the Canadian market was tested in one study and was shown bioequivalent to the formulation used in the two other studies. The mifepristone formulation bridging between the products used in the clinical studies and that proposed for market is considered strong. Bridging of misoprostol was considered robust for regulatory approval based on chemistry, clinical, and regulatory criteria. Many factors were taken into consideration, such as the fact that misoprostol is not a new active ...

In this pre-clinical in vitro study conducted in estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer cells, we have characterized the effects of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-1) on the cytostatic and cytotoxic action of antiestrogen treatment when used as a single agent or in combination with the antiprogestin mifepristone (MIF). Our goal was to identify new molecular targets to improve the efficacy of hormonal therapy in breast cancer patients that have a poor response to hormonal therapy, in part, due to high circulating levels of unbound insulinIGF-1. IGF-1-mediated effects on cytostasis and apoptotic cell death were determined with cell counts conducted in the presence and absence of trypan blue; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays to determine the intracellular levels of cleaved cytokeratin 18, a marker of epithelial cancer cell apoptosis; and immunoblot analysis to determine the levels of cleaved poly-ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) and lamin A that result from caspase-dependent apoptosis.

RESULTS:. We observed that increased production of hepatic H6PDH in db/db mice was paralleled by upregulation of hepatic G6PT production and responded to elevated circulating levels of corticosterone. Treatment of db/db mice with the glucocorticoid antagonist RU486 markedly reduced production of both H6PDH and 11β-HSD1 and improved hyperglycaemia and insulin resistance. The reduction of H6PDH and 11β-HSD1 production by RU486 was accompanied by RU486-induced suppression of hepatic G6pt (also known as Slc37a4) mRNA. Incubation of mouse primary hepatocytes with corticosterone enhanced G6PT and H6PDH production with corresponding activation of 11β-HSD1 and PEPCK: effects that were blocked by RU486. Knockdown of H6pd by small interfering RNA showed effects comparable with those of RU486 for attenuating the corticosterone-induced H6PDH production and 11ß-HSD1 reductase activity in these intact cells. Addition of the G6PT inhibitor chlorogenic acid to primary hepatocytes suppressed H6PDH production ...
