From the cover: “Contraceptive steroids have been in use for the last thirty years and today some sixty million women use them. The importance of ensuring that regulations governing the development and use of new contraceptive steroids are appropriate is self-evident.
This book records the proceedings of a symposium organized under the aegis of the World Health Organization’s Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction. Experts from a wide range of disciplines review the risks and benefits to women of contraceptive steroids, the predictive value of toxicological studies, and the role of controlled clinical trials.
The book ends with a set of guidelines on the toxicological and clinical assessment, and the post-registration surveillance, of steroidal contraceptive drugs.
This important and authoritative compilation will be of value to all those involved in the development, testing and prescription of these compounds, and to those concerned with regulating their use in the public domain.”
