As produced by the female sex hormones

Female sex hormones (estrogen and progesterone) produced in the ovaries under the influence of hormones that are released in the main endocrine glands - the pituitary gland located in the brain. The pituitary gland releases follicle-stimulating (FSH) and luteinizing (LH) hormones, which are in different phases of the menstrual cycle, providing in the first half of the cycle precedence production of estrogen and the growth of follicles in the ovaries (FSH), and in the second half - progesterone and ovulation (LH).

The pituitary gland, in turn, is influenced by the area of ​​the brain responsible for the activities of the entire endocrine system - the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus produces gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which stimulates the production of FSH and LH. GnRH secretion is not constant, and at regular intervals, different in men and women. The introduction of synthetic long-acting GnRH analogues initially causes increased production of FSH and LH, and then a sharp decline in their production, which in turn leads to a reduction of estrogen and progesterone. If administered GnRH in a rhythm corresponding to the natural, it provides strong stimulation of sexual hormones.

Female sex hormones are produced in the male (in the testicles), providing the production and maturation of sperm. Additional chronic administration of GnRH in men suppresses the production of both female and male (testosterone) hormones.

The mechanism of action of buserelin

Buserelin - a synthetic analogue of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which is used in the treatment of hormone-dependent tumors. By acting on the pituitary gland, buserelin causes a transient increase in the level of sex hormones in the blood. After two weeks of continuous use occurs persistent suppression of FSH and LH, which leads to suppression of the production of sex hormones.

As a result, women sharply decreases blood levels of the main estrogen Estrogen - the key to bone health  Estrogen - the key to bone health
   estradioda (the number of its women of childbearing age becomes the same as in menopause) and men - blood levels of testosterone (the amount corresponds to the state after castration, that is actually happening pharmacological castration).

When hormone dependent tumors (breast cancer, prostate cancer and others.) Sex hormones stimulate the growth of tumors, thus requiring suppression of their generation.

Buserelin is discharged in droplet form and metered nasal sprays, suspensions for intramuscular injection of long-acting injectable solution.
