17α-Hydroxyprogesterone Powder (68-96-2) Description:
17A-Hydroxyprogesterone is a metabolite of progesterone. It serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of hydrocortisone and gonadal steroid hormones.
Hydroxyprogesterone has been used prophylactically for the 12th to 37th week of pregnancy, particularly in women who are in the high-risk category for premature delivery . A concern relating to teratogenic potential has limited its use. Hydroxyprogesterone as a tocolytic agent requires further evaluation .
