A Prospective Open Randomized Trial on the Efficacy of Gonadotropin-releasing Hormone Agonist Depot-Triptorelin- to Prevent Chemotherapy Induced Premature Ovarian Failure in Lymphoma Patients.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention
Premature ovarian failure rate
Primary endpoint is to evaluate the short and long-term efficacy of triptorelin depot plus progestin versus progestin alone to prevent POF induced by chemotherapy treatment. The ovarian function (FSH, E2, Progesterone, and AMH, presence of spontaneous menstrual cycle and pregnancies) will be evaluated every 3 months during the first 6 months after the end of chemotherapy, every 6 months during the next 18 months and once a year during an additional 5 years. All hormonal treatment has to be interrupted 10 days before the blood test.
