|Filing Date:||Feb 18, 1993|
|Claims:||1. A pharmaceutically acceptable alkaline earth metal, ammonium or amine salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone-3-sulfate ester free from other estrogenic steroids, wherein the amine of said salt is selected from the group consisting of an alkylamine of 1 to 6 carbon atoms and a dialkylamine in which each alkyl group has, independently, 1 to 6 carbon atoms. |
2. A compound of claim 1 which is calcium 8,9-dehydroestrone-3-sulfate.
3. A compound of claim 1 which is magnesium 8,9-dehydroestrone-3-sulfate.
4. A compound of claim 1 which is ammonium 8,9-dehydroestrone-3-sulfate.
5. A compound of claim 1 which is an alkylamine salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone-3-sulfate in which the alkyl moiety of the amine contains 1 to 6 carbon atoms.
6. A compound of claim 5 which is the ethylamine salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone-3-sulfate.
7. A compound of claim 1 which is a dialkylamine salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone-3-sulfate in which each of the alkyl moieties of the amine contain 1 to 6 carbon atoms.
8. A compound of claim 7 which is the dimethylamine salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone-3-sulfate.
9. A method for the treatment of atherosclerosis which comprises administering to a patient in need of anti-atherosclerotic treatment, an effective amount of a salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone sulfate ester.
10. A method of claim 9 in which said salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone sulfate ester is the calcium, magnesium, ammonium, alkylamine or dialkylamine salt in which each of the alkyl groups of said amines contain from 1 to 6 carbon atoms.
11. A method of removing arterial lesions attending the development of atherosclerosis which comprises administering, orally, or parenterally, to a patient suffering from atherosclerosis, a pharmaceutical composition containing an anti-atherosclerotic amount of a salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone sulfate ester.
12. A method of claim 11 in which said salt of 8,9-dehydroestrone sulfate ester is the calcium, magnesium, ammonium, alkylamine or dialkylamine salt in which each of the alkyl groups of said amines contain from 1 to 6 carbon atoms.
