A transient rise in serum LH and testosterone after each buserelin injection despite low basal serum of testosterone secretion is found throughout 12 months of treatment. In the safety evaluation, it should be considered that in rats, a delay in pubertal maturation is required for only 8 weeks. The specific reactions of steroid biosynthesis to buserelin in rats differ greatly from those observed in the human, where no steroidogenic lesions are detected [31]. The effects of buserelin on spermatogenesis in dogs and monkeys would seem more relevant.
