Abstract

Leuprolide acetate (D-Leu 6 des-Gly-NH210, Pro-ethylamide9) for depot suspension has been shown to be effective in suppressing gonadotropins in 6 patients. Serum LH and FSH response to exogenous LHRH was obliterated after 4 weeks and weekly urinary gonadotropin levels during depot therapy were suppressed. This form of this drug should be effective in the treatment of precocious puberty.
