Possible Interaction: Cardiac Glycosides and Progesterone



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

1 Certain derivatives of progesterone are potent inhibitors of high affinity, specific binding of 3H‐cardiac glycosides.
4 Thus, at least one hydroxylated derivative (and putative endogenous metabolite) of progesterone , mimics the cardiac effects of cardiac glycosides including enhanced contractility.
