5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

.......

Lutropin alfa is a recombinant human

 

Luteinising Hormone (r-hLH), a glycoprotein composed of non-covalently bound α- and β-subunits. Luteinising Hormone (LH) binds on the ovarian theca (and granulosa) cells .......

 

5.2 Pharmacokinetic properties

.......

The pharmacokinetic profile of lutropin alfa is similar to that of urinary-derived hLH. Following intravenous administration, lutropin alfa is rapidly distributed with an initial half-life of approximately one hour and eliminated from the body with a terminal half-life of about 10-12 hours. The steady state volume of distribution is around 10-14 l. Lutropin alfa shows linear pharmacokinetics, as assessed by

 

area under curve (AUC) which is directly proportional to the dose administered. Total clearance is around 2 l/h, and less than 5% of the dose is excreted in the urine. The mean residence time is approximately 5 hours.
