About SAJA Pharmaceuticals:
SAJA Pharmaceuticals is a joint venture between the premier Saudi healthcare company Tamer Industries and two of the leading Japanese pharmaceutical companies which are Daiichi Sankyo Company Ltd and Astellas Pharma Inc.
Goserelin implants contain the active ingredient goserelin and belong to the class of GnRH agonists (analogues of gonadotropin releasing hormone) which interfere with the regulation of sex hormone balance. As a consequence, testosterone levels are lowered in men and estradiol levels are lowered in women. This artificially induced lowering of hormone levels enables the symptomatic therapy of hormone-dependent tumors such as prostate cancer or breast cancer. In addition, goserelin implant is used to treat certain benign gynecological disorders. Goserelin is administered in the form of a biodegradable implant which releases the active ingredient over a period of either one or three months.
