LUPRON DEPOT ® (leuprolide acetate for depot suspension) mg for 1-month and mg for 3-month administration with iron therapy are used before fibroid surgery to improve anemia due to vaginal bleeding from fibroids. Your doctor may consider a one-month trial of iron alone as some patients’ anemia will improve with iron alone. It is recommended that LUPRON DEPOT not be used for more than 3 months in patients with fibroids. Experience with LUPRON DEPOT in females has been limited to women 18 years of age and older.
Observational studies: These kinds of studies collect information about a large group of people but don’t give them a certain treatment, such as a drug. In observational studies of MHT, the women and their doctors decide what hormone drugs, if any, the women take and for how long. These kinds of studies can also gather information about other factors that can influence cancer risk. Some observational studies gather data about what happened over previous years. Others follow (observe) people for years to look at how different factors (like MHT) affect cancer risk. Observational studies can be less costly than randomized clinical trials, so they’re more common and often enroll many more patients.
