Metabolite Identification
Common Name17-alpha-ethinyl estradiol
Description17-alpha-ethinyl estradiol is a metabolite of mestranol. Mestranol is the 3-methyl ether of ethinylestradiol. It was the estrogen used in many of the first oral contraceptives. It is a biologically inactive prodrug of ethinylestradiol to which it is demethylated in the liver with a conversion efficiency of 70% (50 µg of mestranol is pharmacokinetically bioequivalent to 35 µg of ethinylestradiol).
