Gonal-F (generic Follitropin Alfa) is a brand-name medication produced by Serono. Gonal-F 450 IU has been approved in 90 countries and is the bestselling gonadotropin worldwide. Gonal-F is a highly consistent recombinant human follicle-stimulating hormone and is categorized as a FSH medication. The purity of the medication requires the drug to be administered as a subcutaneous injection (administered into the fatty layer of tissue below the skin).
Gonal-F (Follitropin Alfa) falls into the class of IVF medications used to promote healthy and mature egg follicles. Reduced FSH levels are one of the major causes of infertility. Gonal-F would be used in conjunction with hCG supplies (human chorionic gonadotropin) to promote ovarian function. Male infertility is also treated with Gonal-F by increasing sperm production.
The Gonal-F pen comes pre-filled and does not require reconstruction by the patient. The pen reduces human error to ensure patients are administering the accurate dose prescribed by doctors. Gonal-F is prescribed in three doses: 300 IU, 450 IU and 900 IU.
