The commercial hCG preparations Sigma C6322 (CHO-cell recombinant hCG) and C5297 (Sigma Diagnostics), Serono Profasi (Serono), Ferring Choragon (Ferring), Organon Pregnyl (Organon), and Scripps C0713 and C0714 (Scripps Laboratories) were purchased or provided as gifts (all but the Sigma preparations) and analyzed similarly in specific immunoassays to determine the content of intact hCG and hCG-related molecules.
If, for example, the Roche Elecsys test, which gives exaggerated hyperglycosylated hCG results, were used with the Organon Pregnyl hCG (7% hyperglycosylated hCG), the calibration would be notably different from the calibration with the Sigma C6322 (CHO cell recombinant hCG).
Mandy was prescribed the hormone Metrodine and a booster drug called Pregnyl.
Pregnyl contains equal amounts of hCG and hCG[beta]cf, and the first hCG[beta]cf peak is explained by rapid excretion of hCG[beta]cf into urine [46].
