How CETROTIDE INJECTION works

In females undergoing treatment for infertility, sometimes premature ovulation can lead to the release of eggs which are not ready for fertilisation. Cetrotide 250mcg injection blocks the action of a natural hormone and prevents premature release of the eggs from the ovary. In males, Cetrotide 250mcg injection lowers the amount of testosterone (a male hormone) produced by the body. This may slow or stop the spread and growth of prostate cancer cells that need testosterone to grow.
