Ganirelix Acetate Injection is used to prevent surges of luteinizing hormone (LH) in women undergoing controlled ovarian hyperstimulation. Premature surges in LH can cause ovulation to occur too early.1
Ganirelix has high antagonistic activity against naturally occurring gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptors.1
Ganirelix is rapidly absorbed following subcutaneous injection.1
Ganirelix comes in a convenient, ready-to-use, prefilled glass syringe, and does not require refrigeration.1
