The pharmacological action is contraceptive, anti-gestagenic.
Mifepristone is a synthetic steroid anti-gestagenic agent (blocks the action of progesterone at the level of receptors), does not possess gestagenic activity. Antagonism with GCS (glucocorticosteroids) was noted (due to competition at the level of communication with receptors).
Depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle, it causes an increase in the contractility of the myometrium, stimulating the release of interleukin-8 in choroidectid cells, increasing the sensitivity of the myometrium to PG. As a result of the action of the drug desquamation of the decidual membrane occurs and excretion of the fetal egg. It causes inhibition of ovulation, changes in the endometrium and prevents the implantation of a fertilized egg.
After a single oral intake, Cmax is achieved after 1.3 hours. Absolute bioavailability is 69%. In blood plasma, mifepristone binds 98% to proteins: albumin and acid α1-glycoprotein.
After the distribution phase, the excretion first occurs slowly, the concentration decreases 2 times between 12-72 hours, then more rapidly. T1 / 2 is 18 hours.
