Estrogenic suppression by different administration schedules of goserelin depot for treatment of endometriosis.

Abstract:

:Eighteen patients affected by laparoscopically confirmed endometriosis were randomly assigned to three different schedules of treatment with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH-a) (goserelin depot formulation 3.6 mg) every 28 days for 6 months. Six women received the first implant in early follicular phase, 4 in late luteal phase and 8 in 3rd and 17th day from onset of menses. Pretreatment and posttreatment laparoscopic score, performed according to the American Fertility Society scoring system, were compared; a significant reduction in the extent of disease was observed in each group investigated (A and C: p < 0.01; B: p < 0.05). In each treatment group after the second GnRH-a implant the mean levels of estrone-3-glucuronide (E1-3G), daily measured in early morning urine specimens during the control cycle and the first three months of therapy, were suppressed to menopausal women range. In group B during the 2nd and 3rd month of therapy, the urinary mean levels of E1-3G were significantly lower than in group A and C. In conclusion the different goserelin depot administration schedules gave similar laparoscopic improvement, in spite of the first GnRH-a administration in luteal phase allowed a more marked estrogenic suppression.
