About Goserelin:
Goserelin belongs to the class of GnRH agonists (analogues of gonadotropin releasing hormone) which interfere with the regulation of the 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-sensitive tumors such as prostate cancer or breast cancer with goserelin. In addition, goserelin is used to treat certain benign gynecological disorders. Goserelin is administered in form of a biodegradable implant which releases the active ingredient over a period of either one or three months.

About Leuprorelin:
Leuprorelin belongs to the class of GnRH agonists (analogues of gonadotropin releasing hormone) which interfere with the regulation of the 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-sensitive tumors such as prostate cancer or breast cancer with leuprorelin.
