Zusammenfassung

Sobald die Struktur des Decapeptides LH-RH aufgeklärt und die Synthese gelungen war, wurde versucht, dieses neue hypothalamische Releasing-Hormon zur Therapie der anovulatorischen Infertilität einzusetzen. Da LH-RH als Decapeptid durch proteolytische Enzyme abgebaut wird, ist eine perorale Behandlung mit diesen Hormonen allerdings nicht möglich.
