Description HUMAGO™ (menotropins for injection, USP) is a purified preparation of human menopausal gonadotropin or hMG. Menotropins are found in the urine of postmenopausal females and possess follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) activity. The ratio of FSH bioactivity and LH bioactivity in HMG is adjusted to approximate unity by the addition of human chorionic gonadotropin. HUMAGO™ is biologically standardized for LH and FSH gonadotropin activities and the potencies are based on the results of in vivo-bioassay, which are in terms with the suggestions of the WHO, Expert Committee on Biological Standardization (1982).
