Single-dose pharmacokinetics of clomiphene citrate in normal volunteers

Fertility and Sterility
T J MikkelsonP J Manberg


Twenty-four healthy adult female volunteers participated in a randomized, three-phase double-blind crossover trial comparing the single-dose (50 mg) pharmacokinetics of three formulations of clomiphene citrate (CC). Plasma levels of both the Z(cis) and E(trans) isomers of CC, as well as principal metabolites, were determined at periodic intervals; and no differences between formulations were observed. The active Z isomer attained peak blood levels later than the inactive E isomer and was eliminated much more slowly, significant plasma concentrations still being detected up to 1 month after treatment. The results of this study demonstrate that three commercially available formulations of CC are bioequivalent.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
