DrugDrug Description
SermorelinFor the treatment of dwarfism, prevention of HIV-induced weight loss
DesmopressinA synthetic analog of vasopressin used to reduce renal excretion of water in central diabetes insipidus and nocturia.
CetrorelixA synthetic peptide antagonist of gonadotropin releasing hormone used to prevent luteinizing hormone surges in women undergoing assisted reproduction therapy.
SomatotropinA form of recombinant human growth hormone used to treat dwarfism, growth hormone deficiency, and acromegaly as well as to prevent weight loss in HIV patients.
PegvisomantA growth hormone receptor antagonist used to treat acromegaly.
OctreotideA peptide drug used to treat acromegaly as well as diarrhea associated with metastatic carcinoid tumors and vasoactive intestinal peptide secreting tumors.
GonadorelinA synthetic GnRH used to test the function of gonadotropes and the pituitary.
NafarelinA gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist used to treat central precocious puberty.
MecaserminA recombinant insulin-like growth factor-1 used for the long-term treatment of growth failure in pediatric patients with primary IGF-1 deficiency or with growth hormone gene deletion due to the development of neutralizing antibodies to GH.
CarbetocinAn oxytocin agent used to control postpartum hemorrhage and bleeding after giving birth.
TetracosactideA diagnostic agent used in the screening of patients presumed to have adrenocortical insufficiency.
CorticotropinA diagnostic agent used in the screening of patients presumed to have adrenocortical insufficiency.
TerlipressinCommonly used to stop bleeding of varices in the food pipe (oesophagus).
VapreotideFor the treatment of esophageal variceal bleeding in patients with cirrhotic liver disease and has also shown efficacy in the treatment of patients with AIDS-related diarrhea.
PasireotideA somatostatin analog used in the treatment of Cushing’s disease, specifically for those patients whom pituitary surgery is not appropriate.
GanirelixA GnRH antagonist used in assisted reproduction in women undergoing controlled ovarian hyperstimulation to control ovulation by inhibiting the premature LH surges.
LanreotideA somatostatin analog used for the treatment of unresectable, well- or moderately-differentiated, locally advanced or metastatic gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors and acromegaly.
TesamorelinA growth hormone releasing factor (GRF) analog used to reduce excessive abdominal fat in HIV patients who have developed lipodystrophy.
SomatremA recombinant growth hormone used to treat adult growth hormone deficiency and treat disrupted growth in children due to growth hormone insufficiency or deficiency, turner's syndrome, chronic renal failure, and small stature for gestational age.
SomatostatinA naturally-occurring peptide hormone used for the symptomatic treatment of acute bleeding from esophageal varices.
