Hydroxyprogesterone caproate

Hydroxyprogesterone caproate is a man-made progestin hormone. It helps lower the risk of giving birth too early, which is preterm birth or giving birth less than 37 weeks of pregnancy in pregnant women. Only pregnant women who are pregnant with one baby and with preterm delivery of one baby in the past have prescribed this medicine. It is used with mothers who have had a history of gynecological disorders. Hydroxyprogesterone is progestin hormones that reduce the risk of premature birth through a mechanism that is yet to be fully explained. In combination with other estrogens, it is also used as an injectable form of long term birth control.  Hydroxyprogesterone caproate is sold under the brand names Proluton and Makena among others. After the expiry of its original patent, this product has been made and distributed by companies around the world with ever-newer formulations to increase the conditions it can help treat. Schering AG developed OHPC in 1953. It was first reported in the medical literature in 1954. First marketed only in Japan in 1954 or 1955, it was subsequently introduced as Delalutin in the United States in 1956. However, the manufacturer Squibb withdrew its patent in 1999, post which it was also discontinued in the USA. But it was reintroduced in the United States under the brand name Makena for the treatment of preterm birth in 2011.
