Enzymes and Hormones Laboratory  

Enzymes and Hormones Laboratory is primarly involved in Quality control testing of various therapeutic Enzymes and Hormones viz. Streptokinase, Urokinase, Heparin, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, Menotropin (Human Menopausal Gonadotropin), Follicle Stimulating Hormone, Somatropin (Growth Hormone).


Additionally, laboratory functions include monograph preparation for incorporation in Indian Pharmacopoeia, monograph Test method verification, test method standardization of new Biologicals and Bio therapeutics, participation in proficiency testing, Inter-Laboratory Collaborative Studies and preparation of working reference standards.


Among enzymes category, the laboratory is doing QC testing of clot buster enzymes Streptokinase (convential and recombinant) and Urokinase which are thrombolytic drugs.These are Plasminogen activators used extensively in the treatment of myocardial infractions(heart attacks), severe or massive deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. The laboratory is also doing QC testing of Heparin, a highly sulfated glycosaminoglycan. This is widely used as an injectable anticoagulant, and has the highest negative charge density of any known biological molecule.


In the category of hormones, Laboratory is involved in QC testing of fertility hormones like Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG), Menotropin (Human Menopausal Gonadotrophin, HMG) and Urofollitropin and Recombinant Follicle Stimulating hormone (rFSH). Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin is used as ovulation inducer during infertility treatments like Assisted Reproductive Therapies. Menotropin (HMG) contains Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and Luteinising hormone (LH) activities in 1:1 ratio that stimulates growth as well as maturation of follicles. Urofollitropin, is the purified form of Follicle Stimulating Hormone that is used for stimulation of growth of immature ovarian follicles in ovary. These hormones are used in Assisted Reproductive Treatment like In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), Embryo transfer (ET), Intrauterine fertilisation (IUF) etc.


The Laboratory is also involved in QC tests of recombinant Human Somatropin (human Growth hormone) which is used to treat growth related disorders and turner syndrome.

Enzymes and Hormones batches received in lab are evaluated as per their respective monographs in latest editions of Pharmacopoeias like Indian Pharmacopoeia, United States Pharmacopoeia, European Pharmacopoeia, British pharmacopoeia etc.
