Fields of Application
Veterinary: Lecirelin is used for the induction of ovulation in cows, mares and rabbits and for the treatment of cystic ovarian acyclia in cows.
Lecirelin is a synthetic polypeptide which acts as LH-RH (Luteinizing-hormone releasing hormone) analogue agonist. LH-RH is secreted in the hypothalamus and its release induces the secretion of LH (Luitenizing hormone) and FSH (Follicle-stimulating hormone) from the pituitary gland. These two hormones act on the ovaries and the testes and are responsible of the profertility effects of LHRH through the release of steroideal hormones.
