Buserelin has been used for some time to induce ovulation - I know of it being used in the late '90's and research (I. Barrier-Battut, N. Le Poutre, E. Trocherie, S. Hecht, A. Grandchamp des Raux, J.L. Nicaise, X. Vérin, J. Bertrand, F. Fiéni, R. Hoier, A. Renault, L. Egron, D. Tainturier, J.F. Bruyas; 2001: Use of buserelin to induce ovulation in the cyclic mare Theriogenology 55;8:1679-1695) was performed in 2001. In those cases treatment was multiple times a day.
The time frame to ovulation would appear to be approximately the same as for hCG or the other GnRH product currently in commercial use (Deslorelin), being in the approximately 36-40 hour average range. You will note from the two cited documents that the evaluation ranges were 24-48 hours, which also coincides with hCG and Deslorelin.
There hasn't been a commercial product produced with that intended use, so no research that I'm aware of I'm afraid! (And actually, most of the research for Deslorelin and hCG gives % ovulations within 40/48 hours rather than a specific time).
On deslorelin remember the study you told me in the deslorelin thread ov time - I geuss it was average % of 44,2 hours !
