Oral administration of the GnRH antagonist acyline, in a GIPET®-enhanced tablet form, acutely suppresses serum testosterone in normal men: single-dose pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics
TLDR
Oral administration of GIPET®-enhanced acyline significantly suppresses testosterone and gonadotropins in normal men without untoward side effects and might have utility in the management of prostate cancer.
MER-104 tablets: a dose-ranging study of an oral formulation of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist, acyline.
TLDR
