CHORIONIC GONADOTROPHIN FOR INJECTION, Mfr. Std. 5,000 IU or 10,000 IU
FOR VETERINARY USE ONLY
Chorulon is presented as a white freeze-dried crystalline cake containing 5,000 IU or 10,000 IU of chorionic gonadotrophin. It is supplied with a vial of sterile diluent for reconstitution. Concentration after reconstitution is 1,000 IU per 1 mL.
Chorulon (Human chorionic gonadotrophin) is a complex glycoprotein capable of supplementing and being substituted for the luteinizing hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland in both the maturation of the follicle, ovulation and the formation of the corpus luteum. In the male Chorulon stimulates the interstitium to the production of testosterone and thus influences the development and maintenance of primary and secondary male sex characteristics. These properties make Chorulon suitable for the treatment of several fertility problems in domestic animals due to deficiencies of natural luteinizing hormone (LH) or interstitial cell stimulating hormone (ICSH).
As an aid in the treatment of the following fertility problems in cows and heifers:
cystic ovary syndrome: anoestrus, prolonged oestrus and/or nymphomania due to cystic ovaries.
Using a sterile syringe and a sterile hypodermic needle, transfer 5 mL (5,000 IU) or 10 mL (10,000 IU) of diluent into the vial containing the preparation. Shake thoroughly until the suspension is uniform after which the injection may be given. After reconstitution, the solution should be used immediately or within 24 hours. Refrigeration after reconstitution is recommended.

Chorulon must be reconstituted with Chorulon Sterile Diluent before use.
Cystic ovary syndrome: anoestrus, prolonged oestrus
