[en] Plasma pFSH level ; Superovulation ; Cow
[en] Porcine follicle stimulating hormone (pFSH) and porcine luteinizing hormone (pLH), are widely used to induce superovulation in cows. An advantage of this treatment is that the LH:FSH ratio can be varied to optimize the growth of the ovarian follicles. However, due to the relatively short half-life of FSH, the superovulatory treatment requires numerous injections.
A performant radioimmunoassay system (sensitivity=0.2 ng/ml plasma) was used to determine plasma pFSH levels in cows that were superovulated with 2 daily injections of 4 Armour Units (A.U.) of pFSH for 4 d. From plasma profiles, the half-life and the disappearance of pFSH were estimated at 5 h and at 10 to 12 h, respectively, confirming the necessity of using two daily injections.
