Estradiol benzoate/hydroxyprogesterone caproate (EB/OHPC), sold under the brand name Primosiston among others, is a combined estrogen and progestogen medication which is used to treat gynecological disorders and habitual abortion.[1][2][3][4][5] It contains estradiol benzoate (EB), an estrogen, and hydroxyprogesterone caproate (OHPC), a progestin.[1][2][3][4][5] The medication is given by injection into muscle.[1][2][3][4][5]

Medical uses[edit]

EB/OHPC is used in the treatment of gynecological disorders such as menstrual disorders (e.g., amenorrhea, dysfunctional uterine bleeding) and premenstrual syndrome, habitual abortion (threatened miscarriage), and for other indications.[1][2][3][4]

EB/OHPC is available in the form of ampoules of oil solutions containing 10 mg estradiol benzoate (EB) and 125 to 250 mg hydroxyprogesterone caproate (OHPC).[1][2][3][4][5]

Zur kombinierten Anwendung von Gestagen en und Östrogenen stand en zunächst ölgelöstes Östradiolbenzoat und Progesteron zur Verfügung. Das erste derartige Mischpräparat kam in Deutschland 1950 auf den Mark t. Dem Wunsch nach verlän gerter Wirkungsdauer entsprach en dann Kristallmischsuspension en verschiedener Korngröße aus Östradiolmonobenzoat + Progesteron, deren Anwendung sich auf klinische Untersuchungen besch ränkte (83). Ölgelöste Depotpräparate mit Östradiolbenzoat oder -valerat + 17-hydroxyprogesteroncaproat wurden ab 1955 in die Therapie eingeführt (45.46).
