Some derivatives of progestins of the pregna-D6′-pentarane series have been obtained and examined for their possible hormonal and antihormonal activity in the Clauberg-McPhail assay as well as in the pregnancy maintenance test in ovariectomized rabbits. 16α, 17α-Cyclohexanoprogesterones of the 19-methyl and 19-nor series (1–4) saturated in ring A, which are inactive as progestins, exhibited a remarkable antiprogesterone effect. They decreased the McPhail index under combined administration with progesterone in a dose-dependable manner and completely inhibited the action of the latter in the pregnancy maintenance test.
