Raoul Concepcion, MD, director, Comprehensive Prostate Center, discusses the use of Eligard in the treatment of prostate cancer with OncLive during the LUGPA Annual Meeting.

Eligard, manufactured by Tolmar, is an LHRH agonist which overdrives the testical for a brief period of time, resulting in a castration level of testosterone.

What makes Eligard unique is its delivery system, Concepcion says. Eligard's Atrigel delivery system is a slow release, which results in lower, sustained levels of testosterone.
