Characteristics of Mifepristone
Synthetic steroidal anti-gestagenic agent. Crystalline powder from light yellow with a greenish tint to yellow with a greenish tinge.
The pharmacological action is antiprogestagenic.
Blocks the action of progesterone at the receptor level. Does not possess gestagenic activity. Antagonism with glucocorticoids due to competition at the level of binding to receptors was noted.
Increases the contractile activity of the myometrium, stimulating the release of interleukin-8 in choroidectid cells and increasing the sensitivity of the myometrium to prostaglandin. To increase the effect, mifepristone is used in combination with a synthetic analogue of prostaglandin (eg with misoprostol). Stimulation of contractions of the uterus leads to desquamation of the decidua and expulsion of the fetal egg.
The use of the progesterone receptor blocker in uterine leiomyoma can help inhibit tumor growth and reduce the size of the myomatous nodes and uterus.
Absolute bioavailability is 69%. After a single oral intake of 600 mg Cmax in the blood serum - 1.98 mg / l, Tmax - 1.3 hours. Binding to plasma proteins (albumin and acid alpha-1-glycoprotein) - 98%. After the distribution phase, the excretion occurs first slowly (the concentration decreases 2 times between 12-72 h), then more rapidly. T1 / 2 - 18 hours.
