Description of dosage form
Tablets: from light yellow to light yellow color with a greenish tinge, flat-cylindrical shape, with a bevel.
Pharmacological action is anti-gestagenic.
Ginestril ® - a synthetic steroid anti-gestagenic agent (blocks the action of progesterone at the receptor level), does not possess gestagenic activity. Antagonism with GCS (glucocorticosteroids) was noted (due to competition at the level of communication with receptors).
A key role in the pathogenesis of uterine leiomyomas is played by sex hormones, especially progesterone. The use of mifepristone as a blocker of progesterone receptors can contribute both to inhibition of tumor growth, and to a decrease in the size of the myomatous nodes and uterus.
After ingestion, Cmax is reached after 1.3 hours. Absolute bioavailability is 69%.
In plasma, Gynestril® binds 98% to proteins - albumin and acid alpha-1 glycoprotein.
After the distribution phase, the excretion first takes place slowly (the concentration decreases 2 times between 12-72 hours), then more rapidly. T1 / 2 is 18 hours.
