Pharmacodynamic properties
Estriol is a short-acting natural oestrogen. In ovarioectomised female dogs it has a beneficial effect on urinary incontinence. In the target animal safety study and the clinical trials, including long-term treatment, no signs of bone marrow suppression were observed. This is probably due to the short-acting oestrogenic character of estriol.
Pharmacokinetic particulars
