Pharmaceutical secondary standards for application in quality control provide pharma laboratories and manufacturers with a convenient and cost-effective alternative to the preparation of in-house working standards
DL-Aminoglutethimide is a derivative of the sedative glutethimide. Originally introduced as an anticonvulsant, it was found to cause adrenal insufficiency. Blocks adrenal steroidogenesis by inhibiting the enzymatic conversion of cholesterol to pregnenolone. It also blocks the peripheral conversion (aromatization) of androgenic precursors to estrogens. The D-isomer is 30 times more potent at inhibiting aromatase activity, whereas the L-isomer is more potent at inhibiting cholesterol side-chain cleavage (steroidogenesis).
These secondary standards offer multi-traceability to the USP, EP and BP primary standards, where they are available.
