Basic Information On Suprefact Depot
Suprefact Depot is used for the treatment of prostate cancer in men. It imitates the action of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH or LHRH). This hormone is released by the hypothalamus gland in the brain and it controls the production of testosterone in men and estrogen in women. This gland releases the gonadotropin hormone in controlled bursts but this medicine releases the gonadotropin hormone constantly in the body. The production of this hormone is then stopped by the hypothalamus gland, which further reduces the level of estrogen in women and testosterone in men. It is a long term medication for prostate cancer. It stays effective in the body for 2 months. In women, it is used to treat endometriosis (a disorder caused by growth of extra tissue outside or inside the uterus).
