Description

Norethisterone (INN, BAN), also known as Norethindrone (USAN), is a synthetic progestational hormone with actions similar to those of progesterone but functioning as a more potent inhibitor of ovulation. It has weak estrogenic and androgenic properties. The hormone has been used in treating amenorrhea, functional uterine bleeding, endometriosis, and for contraception.

Pharmacology

Indication

For the treatment of secondary amenorrhea, endometriosis, and abnormal uterine bleeding due to hormonal imbalance in the absence of organic pathology, such as submucous fibroids or uterine cancer.

Pharmacodynamics

Norethindrone is a synthetic oral progestin. It is used for contraception or to treat such conditions as secondary amenorrhea, abnormal uterine bleeding, and endometriosis. As an oral contraceptive, norethindrone is available as either a single agent or in combination with an estrogen. Norethindrone acetate induces secretory changes in an estrogen-primed endometrium. On a weight basis, it is twice as potent as norethindrone.

Mechanism of action

Progestins diffuse freely into target cells and bind to the progesterone receptor. Target cells include the female reproductive tract, the mammary gland, the hypothalamus, and the pituitary. Once bound to the receptor, progestins slow the frequency of release of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) from the hypothalamus and blunt the pre-ovulatory LH surge.

TargetActionsOrganism
UProgesterone receptor
agonist
Human
Absorption

Norethindrone acetate is completely and rapidly deacetylated to norethindrone (NET) after oral administration, and the disposition of norethindrone acetate is indistinguishable from that of orally administered norethindrone. Norethindrone is rapidly absorbed from norethindrone acetate, in which maximum plasma concentration occur 2 hours post-dose (Tmax). When a single dose is given to healthy women, the Cmax is 26.19 ± 6.19 hours. The AUC (0-inf) is 166.90 ± 56.28 ng/mL*h. Absolute oral bioavailability is approximately 64%. The effect of food on the pharmacokinetics of norethindrone acetate is unknown.

Volume of distribution
  • 4 L/kg
Protein binding

Norethindrone is 36% bound to sex hormone-binding globulin and 61% bound to albumin.

Metabolism

Hepatic. Norethindrone is extensively metabolized, primarily via reduction. It also undergoes sulfate and glucuronide conjugation. The majority of metabolites in the circulation are sulfates, with glucuronides accounting for most of the urinary metabolites.

Route of elimination

Norethindrone is excreted in both urine and feces, primarily as metabolites.

Half life

8.51 ± 2.19 (when a single dose is given to healthy women)

Clearance
  • 0.4 L/hr/kg [plasma clearance]
