Corticosteroids were voted  in 2005 by the American Contact Dermatitis Society.

Hydroxylated metabolites of progesterone, namely the 3 alpha-and 3 alpha,5 alpha (allopregnanolone) derivatives, are suspected to act as neuropharmacological agents through the GABAA receptor (Mahesh et al., 1996; Wiebe et al., 1997; Concas et al., 1998; Smith et al., 1998).


Synthesis and metabolism of adrenocortical steroids …

Cortisol is formed from 17α-hydroxyprogesterone, with 11-deoxycortisol as an intermediate. Cortisol is the main glucocorticoid secreted by human adrenal glands.

Synthesis and metabolism of adrenocortical steroids

Progesterone is produced by the corpus luteum during the first 6-8 weeks of gestation, but during pregnancy the main source for this steroid is the placenta. Estrogen levels (and that of its metabolite estriol) rise markedly during gestation. The substrate for estrogen biosynthesis in the fetoplacental unit is dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) which is obtained from the fetomaternal bloodstream (see ref. 5, pp. 191-194, for more details).
