Drug Drug Description Leuprolide A peptide-based GnRH receptor superagonist used for the palliative treatment of prostate cancer, uterine leiomyomata, endometriosis, and central precocious puberty. Goserelin A synthetic analog of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone used to treat breast cancer and prostate cancer by reducing secretion of gonadotropins from the pituitary. Desmopressin A synthetic analog of vasopressin used to reduce renal excretion of water in central diabetes insipidus and nocturia. Cetrorelix A synthetic peptide antagonist of gonadotropin releasing hormone used to prevent luteinizing hormone surges in women undergoing assisted reproduction therapy. Vasopressin A peptide hormone used to increase blood pressure in patients with vasodilatory shock who are resistant to fluid and catecholamine therapy. Glutathione For nutritional supplementation, also for treating dietary shortage or imbalance Pentagastrin A gastrin-like molecule used as a diagnostic aid for the evaluation of gastric acid secretory function, gastric hypersecretion, and Zollinger-Ellison tumors. Ceruletide Caerulein is used in the treatment of paralytic ileus and as diagnostic aid in pancreatic malfunction. Enalapril A prodrug of an ACE inhibitor used to treat hypertension and congestive heart failure. Gonadorelin A synthetic GnRH used to test the function of gonadotropes and the pituitary. Nafarelin A gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist used to treat central precocious puberty. Lisinopril An ACE inhibitor used to treat hypertension, heart failure, and acute myocardial infarction. Spirapril Spirapril is an ACE inhibitor class drug used to treat hypertension. Buserelin A LHRH agonist used for the palliative treatment of hormone-dependent advanced carcinoma of the prostate gland in males and treatment of endometriosis in females. Ganirelix A GnRH antagonist used in assisted reproduction in women undergoing controlled ovarian hyperstimulation to control ovulation by inhibiting the premature LH surges. Histrelin A GnRH agonist found in subcutaneous implants used for the treatment of pediatric patients with central precocious puberty and the palliative treatment of advanced prostate cancer. Triptorelin A GnRH agonist indicated for the palliative treatment of advanced prostate cancer. Protirelin A synthetic analogue of thyrotropin-releasing hormone that has been used during diagnostic tests to evaluate function of the thyroid gland. Enalaprilat An antihypertensive agent used for the management of hypertension when oral therapy is not practical. Deslorelin Deslorelin acetate is an injectable gonadotropin releasing hormone super-agonist also known as an LHRH agonist. It stops the production of sex hormones. Angiotensin II A peptide hormone of the RAAS system used to raise blood pressure in septic or other forms of shock. Lypressin Not Annotated Glutathione disulfide An ingredient of ophthalmic irrigation solutions used during ophthalmological procedures. Antipain Antipain is a serine/cysteine protease inhibitor originally isolated from various strains of actinomycetes. Early studies investigated the potential for antipain to alter DNA damage and chromosomal aberrations in irradiated cells... Ornithine An amino acid commonly found as a component in total parenteral nutrition.
