Metabolic parameters were studied in 30 patients over 12 treatment cycles in a double-blind randomized comparative trial of the new progestogen gestoden in a triphasic formulation against a fixed dose combination pill containing desogrestrel, in Bandung, Indonesia. The results of this laboratory experience affirm findings in similar previous metabolic studies that: (1) the changes induced by modern low-dose pills are clinically and statistically insignificant; (2) throughout the treatment cycles, the values of the various laboratory tests remain well within the normal range; and (3) the favorable balance between coagulation and fibrinolysis is maintained. Results of lipoprotein, coagulation, fibrinolytic and liver function tests in 27 patients are presented. Gestoden's pharmacologic profile and the worldwide clinical experience with the triphasic gestoden formulation in 4285 women are discussed.
