DESCRIPTION: Ovusyn is a purified hormone, chorionic gonadotropin obtained from the urine of pregnant women. It is lyophilized to maintain potency under normal storage conditions. Because of its similarity to pituitary luteinizing hormone, human chorionic gonadotrophin induces ovulation in the ovaries as well as testosterone production in the testes. These characteristics allow chorionic gonadotropin to be used in fertility problems in domestic animals due to deficiencies of natural luteinizing hormone.
Each 10 mL vial of Ovusyn contains 5,000 IU of chorionic gonadotropin.
