Drug Names(s): Decapeptyl (EU), Debio 8206 (IM), Trelstar Depot, Trelstar Long-Acting (LA), triptorelin embonate, Pamorelin, Salvacyl

Description: BioMedTracker has separate profiles for the subcutaneous and intramuscular formulations of triptorelin pamoate. Please also see Debio 8206.

Trelstar 3.75mg, Trelstar 11.25mg, and Trelstar 22.5mg (triptorelin pamoate for injectable suspension), a peptide formulation using Debiopharm S.A.'s Debio PLGA proprietary technology, are one-, three-, and six-month sustained-release formulations of triptorelin, an analog of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH or GnRH) with greater potency than naturally occurring LHRH.

The active substance of the drug is triptorelin, adecapeptide analogue of GnRH (Gonadotrophin Releasing Hormone), a hormone secreted by thehypothalamus, which initially stimulates the release of pituitary gonadotrophins (hormones produced by the pituitary gland), which in turn control hormonal secretions by the testes and ovaries.
