      Mechanism of Action of Drugs

      A Kare Kit tablet is a combination medicine used for termination of early pregnancy. Mifepristone is a synthetic steroid which blocks the effects of progesterone (a natural female hormone) by competitively binding to intracellular progesterone receptor, helping in termination of pregnancy. Without progesterone, the lining of uterus breaks as it does during menstrual period and stops the growth of pregnancy. It also blocks cortisol receptors and helps in controlling high blood glucose levels in patients with Cushing’s syndrome. Misoprostol works by increasing the contractions of the uterus to cause abortion.
