|Drug Name and Strength||Chorionic gonadotrophin 5000IU|
|Indication||Fertility problems in domestic animals; see Actions.|
|Actions||Chorionic gonadotrophin is a complex glycoprotein capable of supplementing and being substituted for the luteinising hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland in both the male and female. In the female, Chorulon promotes maturation of the follicle, ovulation and the formation of the corpus luteum. In the male, it stimulates the production of testosterone and thus influences the development and maintenance of primary and secondary male sex characteristics.|
|Precautions||In rare cases, as with all protein preparations, anaphylactoid incidents may occur shortly after injection. Adrenaline injection (1:1,000) given intravenously or intramuscularly when symptoms appear is the standard treatment. The administration of a corticosteroid may also be indicated.Disposal Dispose of empty containers or outer packaging by wrapping with paper and putting in garbage.|
