Preliminary report on progesterone effect on peripheral estrone sulfate metabolism.


The effect of progesterone (P) on peripheral estrone sulfate (E1S) was investigated in postmenopausal women using E1S constant infusions. The metabolic clearance rate of E1S (MCRE1S) was significantly lowered by P administration (p less than 0.01), while no significant changes were observed for E1S----E1 conversion ratio. The present findings suggest that P can affect the E1S peripheral fate inducing deep changes in estrogen equilibrium.
