EquiGen

EquiGen™ Injection is a freeze-dried form of methionyl equine somatotropin (eST) or equine growth hormone produced by recombinant DNA technology. This protein is essentially identical to the naturally occurring eST produced in the pituitary gland of horses, with the addition of a methionine residue to facilitate protein expression

EquiGen™ Injection is a prescription veterinary medicine for horses and contains equine somatotropin (eST), also known as equine growth hormone (equine GH).

Species-specific GH is produced throughout life in all animals and plays an important role in growth, metabolism and tissue turnover. Much research concentrates on GH’s ability to promote tissue growth and repair, improve body condition, stimulate the immune system and increase fertility.

EquiGen™ supplements the natural levels of GH in the horse, which can be beneficial in aging animals with naturally declining levels of GH or in horses with a need for altered metabolism or enhanced tissue turnover.
