Main Description
This is a comprehensive scientific text and reference work on the many uses of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) analogs in treating a broad range of medical conditions, including its use as a male contraceptive. The book contains 32 chapters by world-class scientific and medical experts whose work is the benchmark of GnRH analog research and clinical application. Their contributions to this book are published in eight main sections that fully cover basic aspects, delivery systems, characteristics of GnRH antagonists, steroid replacement during analog treatment, cancer, ovulation induction, surgical aspects, and the use of GnRH analogs to treat uterine bleeding and precocious puberty and in male hormonal contraception.
