SPRM

A class of medications that attach to cellular binding sites for the hormone progesterone, and either stimulate those sites, block them, or both block and stimulate them. They have a variety of uses in obstetrics and gynecology. Antagonist (blocking) agents like mifepristone can induce abortion. Agonist (receptor-stimulating) drugs may be used to treat uterine fibroids.
