Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacodynamic equivalence of triptorelin pamoate (Pamorelin® LA 11.25 mg), applied either IM or SC, in terms of the area under the curve [AUC1-85days] for serum testosterone in patients with advanced prostate cancer. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of time to castration [tcast] in patients with advanced prostate cancer [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of the area under the curve [AUC1-169days] for testosterone [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of the area under the curve [AUC85-169days] for testosterone [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of the maximum concentration of serum testosterone [Cmax] [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
