PLUSET FLEX H is a mixture of swine pituitary gonadotrophins used for the induction of multiple ovulations (superovulation). The use of standardized concentrations for both gonadotrophins guarantees a consistent quality of the product and eliminates possible variability in effectiveness from one lot to another. In the absence of an International Standard for the porcine gonadotrophin, dosing is carried out using the International Standard for human urine FSH and LH.Close
- PROPERTIES AND ACTION
Ovarian stimulation with exogenous Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) allows a greater number of ova to be produced than normally produced in a single reproductive cycle.
The pituitary hormone extract contains variable levels of Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH).
Clearly in order to obtain proper and effective superovulation which provides satisfactory results involving a high number of living embryos, it is necessary to carry out a treatment that guarantees the activation and progress of multiple follicle maturation in the most "physiological" and repeatable way possible.
Thus, given that it influences the activity of FSH, it is important to have a defined level of LH present.
PLUSET FLEX H is manufactured in a method chosen to ensure that the defined level of LH content is consistently mantained.
Kinetic studies of FSH and LH in the bloodstream of bovine has shown a half-life of 150 minutes for FSH and a half-life of 40 minutes for LH.Close
- ANIMAL SPECIES AND INDICATIONS
For the induction of superovulation in bovine females.Close
There are no ascertained contra-indications.Close
