Update on PBS Approval for Use of Ovidrel in Males
Ovidrel will now receive PBS subsidy for specific uses in males, as of 1 July 2023.
As outlined on the Healthy Male website, the PBS subsidy is approved for the following applications of Ovidrel in males:
- Treatment of acquired hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism in adulthood
- Puberty induction in males with congenital hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism
- Promotion of testicular descent not due to anatomic obstruction
- Stimulation of spermatogenesis in infertility caused by hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism.
USANZ has supported the Healthy Male organisation in their advocacy efforts to achieve this outcome.
