This study examined the impact of the gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist Antarelix on LH, FSH, ovarian steroid hormone secretion, follicular development and pituitary response to LHRH in cycling gilts. Oestrous cycle of 24 Landrace gilts was synchronised with Regumate (for 15 days) followed by 800 IU PMSG 24h later. In experiment 1, Antarelix (n=6 gilts) was injected i.v. (0.5mg per injection) twice daily on four consecutive days from day 3 to 6 (day 0=last day of Regumate… CONTINUE READING
