Randomized Crossover Trial to Assess the Tolerability of GnRH Analogue Administration

2014-08-27 03:12:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare how subjects feel after receiving injections of two different types of GnRH six months apart. One injection is given under the skin of the abdomen, and the other one into the muscle of the buttock or thigh.

Description

GnRH is given as an injection. Injections of GnRH can be uncomfortable, causing a feeling of burning or stinging. The uncomfortable feeling may be caused by differences in the types of GnRH and the site of the injection (under the skin of the abdomen, or into the muscle of the buttock or thigh).

A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Megestrol acetate is a progestogen with actions and uses similar to those of the progestogens in general. It also has anti-androgenic properties. It is given by mouth in the palliative treatment or as an adjunct to other therapy in endometrial carcinoma and in breast cancer. Megestrol acetate has been approved to treat anorexia and cachexia.
