(es-tră-dī'ol, es-tra'dē-ōl),
β-Estradiol; 17β-estradiol; the most potent naturally occurring estrogen in mammals, formed by the ovary, placenta, testis, and possibly the adrenal cortex; therapeutic indications for estradiol are those typical of an estrogen. α-Estradiol (17α-estradiol), exhibits considerably less biologic activity.

oestradiol

Estradial, a natural oestrogen drug that can be taken by mouth as a hormone replacement therapy and to control menopausal symptoms. Brand names are Climaval, Ellest Solo, Menorest, Progynova, Sandrena, Vagifem and Zumenon. Preparations of oestradiol (estradiol) for external use as a transdermal patch include Estelle Solo MX 40, Estraderm MX, Evorel, Fematrix 40 and Femseven. The drug is also used externally in a vaginal ring to treat post-menopausal vaginitis, under the brand name Estring.
