Leuprolide Acetate

Leuprolide Acetate

leuprolide-498-204.pngLeuprolide is a nonapeptide GnRH (LHRH) analog (pGlu-His-Trp-Ser-Tyr-D-Leu-Leu-Arg-Pro-NHEt) that stops the pituitary gland from producing luteinizing hormone. This action leads to a reduction in testosterone levels, which may help to shrink the tumor or slow its growth.

Leuprolide may be used in the treatment of hormone-responsive cancers such as prostate cancer or breast cancer, estrogen-dependent conditions (such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids), to treat precocious puberty, and to control ovarian stimulation in In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). It is considered a possible treatment for paraphilias. Leuprolide also has been tested as a treatment for reducing sexual urges in pedophiles and other cases of paraphilia.
