luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone antagonists

[LOO-tee-uh-ny-zing] also called LHRH antagonists or gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonists. A type of drug thought to work in a way much like the LHRH analogs, but which lower testosterone levels more quickly and without causing the tumor symptoms to worsen (known as tumor flare). See also androgen deprivation therapy, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analogs, testosterone.
