Vantas is a trade name for histrelin, a synthetic Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GRH), which is more potent and longer-acting than natural GRH. Vantas stimulates gonadotropes to release luteinizing and follicle- stimulating hormones. GRH analogues induce hypogonadism on continued use, which is used to treat prostatic cancer, uterine fibroids and precocious puberty in children.
