[Influence of estradiol administration mode on plasma insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and its binding proteins 1 and 3 concentration in postmenopausal women treated with norethisterone acetate]. [2011.03]
CONCLUSION: Mode of administration of estradiol did not influenced the plasma levels of IGF-I, IGFBP-1, IGFBP-3 in postmenopausal women treated with norethisterone acetate.

Evaluation of a low-dose oral contraceptive pill for primary dysmenorrhea: a placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized trial. [2011]
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of low-dose oral contraceptives (IKH-01; 0.035 mg ethinyl estradiol and 1 mg norethisterone) for patients with primary dysmenorrhea...

Pharmacokinetics of once- versus twice-daily tacrolimus formulations in kidney transplant patients receiving expanded criteria deceased donor organs: a single-center, randomized study. [2010.10]
BACKGROUND: Noncompliance to immunosuppressive treatment is 1 of the risk factors for kidney graft loss. The once-daily, prolonged-release tacrolimus formulation may improve treatment adherence. We sought to compare the pharmacokinetics of both tacrolimus formulations in older de novo recipients of a cadaveric renal transplant from an expanded-criteria donor... CONCLUSION: For older de novo recipients of kidneys from expanded criteria donors tacrolimus QD is comparable to the same dose in the BID formulation with similar at least short-term transplant outcomes.

Clinical Trials Related to Nor-QD (Norethindrone)

Treatment of Endometriosis With Norethindrone Acetate ( NA) VS. Gonadotropin- Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Agonist (Lupron Depot 11.25 mg) [Active, not recruiting]
(A) Major 1) to compare the effectiveness of norethindrone acetate (NA) with GnRH agonist (Lupron-Depot-3) in relieving symptoms of endometriosis, 2) to compare bone density in the two treated groups in order to demonstrate that NA does not affect bone density; (B) Minor: 1) To compare the lipid profiles of patients in the two groups to confirm the hypothesis that the effects of NA and GnRH agonists on lipid profiles are similar, 2) To determine whether quality of life, assessed by questionnaire, is better in patients assigned to NA than in patients assigned to GnRH, 3) To determine whether NA has fewer adverse effects than GnRH agonist.

Drug Interaction Study of Isavuconazole and Oral Contraceptive Containing Ethinyl Estradiol and Norethindrone [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of multiple doses of isavuconazole on the pharmacokinetics (PK) of a single dose of contraceptive in healthy post-menopausal women.

Pretreatment With Norethindrone Acetate Prior to Levonorgestrel IUS Insertion for Heavy Menstrual Bleeding [Recruiting]
Problematic uterine bleeding after the insertion of the LNG IUS is a well documented side effect. The levonorgestrel intrauterine system (LNG IUS) was approved for treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) by the FDA in October 2009. To reduce the incidence and severity of post-insertional uterine bleeding, pretreatment with norethindrone acetate may effectively slough the endometrium prior to insertion of the LNG IUS.

Norethindrone/Ethinyl Estradiol 0.4 mg/35 Mcg Chewable Tablets Under Fasting Conditions [Completed]
This study compared the relative bioavailability (rate and extent of absorption) of 0. 4 mg/35 mcg Norethindrone and Ethinyl Estradiol Chewable Tablets by Teva Pharmaceuticals, USA with that of 0. 4 mg/35 mcg Ovcon« 35 Fe Chewable Tablets manufactured by Warner Chilcott Company, Inc., following a single oral dose (2 * 0. 4 mg/35 mcg chewable tablets) in healthy female adult volunteers administered under fasting conditions.

The Effect of Protease Inhibitors on the Pharmacokinetics of Oral Norethindrone Contraception [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to learn if women taking the atazanavir and ritonavir have lower levels of a birth control medication called norethindrone. Norethindrone (also called the mini pill) is an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved progestin-only birth control pill used to prevent pregnancy. Norethindrone is the standard medication used in women who take the progestin only pill to prevent pregnancy. There are other birth control pills which contain different medications. The investigators want to learn if HIV medications (atazanavir and ritonavir) make the blood level of this birth control pill higher or lower. If the levels of norethindrone are too low it may not work to prevent pregnancy. The investigators also hope to learn about changes in the vaginal fluids and cervical fluids when women are taking this birth control pill.
