Description of Gonadorelin:
IPAMORELIN is another name for gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). It is a synthetic decapeptide prepared using solid phase peptide synthesis. GnRH is responsible for the release of follicle stimulating hormone and leutinizing hormone from the anterior pitutitary.
GnRH is available as gonadorelin hydrochloride )and gonadorelin diacetate tetrahydrate for injectable use. Studies have described it being used via an infusion pump system to induce ovulation in patients with hypothalamic hypogonadism. It is also used in veterinary medicine as a treatment for cattle with cystic ovarian disease.
How does it work?
IPAMORELIN is a hormone that is produced naturally by the hypothalamus in the brain. It is also known as gonadotrophin-releasing hormone or GnRH.
IPAMORELIN stimulates the pituitary gland in the brain to release the sex hormones luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). In women, FSH stimulates the production of oestrogen and the development of eggs in the ovaries. LH stimulates the ovaries to release an egg (ovulation). In men, LH stimulates the testicles to produce the hormone test and FSH stimulates the testicles to produce sperm.
IPAMORELIN is given by injection to check whether the pituitary gland is producing LH and FSH in the correct levels. This can help in the diagnosis of various hormonal disorders, including infertility, delayed puberty and hypogonadism.
IPAMORELIN is used by an animals body as a diagnostic aid that assists with hypothalamic-pituitary axis function. Some studies have also looked into the potential use of the synthesized version of this peptide as an infertility therapy agent. When produced by an animals body gonadorelin acetate acts as a natural gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) which is primarily used as a means of synthesizing and releasing luteinizing hormone throughout the body from the anterior pituitary gland. This chemical can also act as a follicle stimulating hormone by increasing production of this chemical, though research has indicated that this behavior occurs to a much lesser degree.
