The available results indicate that LH RH/FSH RH should find some diagnostic application in clinical medicine. Long acting superactive analogs of LH RH may be therapeutically useful, particularly for ovulation induction in women. However, many problems will have to be solved before a new class of birth control drugs based on various derivatives of LH RH can be developed. In spite of the clear proof of their feasibility, the two principal approaches, immunological, based on antisera to LH RH, and synthetic, based on competitive analogs of LH RH, are still conjectural.
