What triptorelin is
Triptorelin is a type of hormone therapy drug used to treat prostate cancer. It is also called Decapeptyl SR or Gonapeptyl Depot. Researchers are also looking into using triptorelin as a treatment for breast cancer.
How triptorelin works
Triptorelin is a type of hormone therapy drug called a gonadotropin releasing hormone blocker. It lowers the level of testosterone in men and oestrogen in women. It does this by stopping the release of luteinising hormone from the pituitary gland. In men, this stops the testicles producing the male sex hormone, testosterone. In women, it stops the ovaries from producing oestrogen.
Prostate cancer depends on testosterone, to grow. Hormone therapies that lower the level of testosterone can slow down the growth of cancer or shrink it.
Some breast cancers depend on oestrogen to grow. Lowering the level of oestrogen can slow or stop the growth of the cancer.
