Quick question: FA19 691 says Leuprolide ClINICAl USE is Uterine fibroids, endometriosis, precocious
puberty, prostate cancer, infertility...
I guess all except infetility(pulsatile?) are used as continuous?
GnRH is synthesized and released in pulsatile fashion , so if you give in pulsatile way you induce GnRH effect , and if given in continuous way it will suppress synthesis, depended the desired effect you want to achieve - infertility induce GnRH with pulsatile , stop synthesis for prostate cancer , testicular cancer , hormone dependent Breast cancer give continuous
How is one supposed to know this before having read this article?
This question falls under the either you know it or you dont category. It isnt in FA or Uworld
So why would these A-holes put it on there as if prepping for this exam isn't stressful enough :-|
and there's so much unnecessarily BS instead of real questions
