Drop Testosterone (T) on Day 1

In the treatment of advanced prostate cancer (APC)

FIRMAGON® takes a more direct path to testosterone suppression than Lupron Depot® (leuprolide acetate)

Time to testosterone treatment goal

Day 1 = 52% reached their treatment goal

Day 3 = 96% reached their treatment goal

By day 28, both groups were similar

FIRMAGON IS AN ANTAGONIST

FIRMAGON is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist that immediately stops testosterone production at its source, eliminating the possibility of an initial testosterone “surge” and any need for additional therapies to counteract surges.

FIRMAGON is the only gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist available in the United States for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer (APC).

LUPRON DEPOT IS AN AGONIST

Lupron Depot triggers a receptor called the luteinizing hormone–releasing hormone (LHRH) receptor, which results in an initial surge in testosterone. This initial surge subsequently reduces over a few weeks. Additional medication may be required to prevent the effects of the testosterone surge.
