The aim of this study is to assess the developmental patterns of lung function in children affected by growth hormone deficiency after one year of GH therapy.The assessment by specific qu...
This protocol will assess the cardiovascular risk associated with growth hormone deficiency in adults. We will use multiple modalities to assess risk for heart attacks or strokes includin...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy and safety profile of a new weekly administered growth hormone preparation compared with placebo in adults with growth hormone deficiency.
Growth hormone and gonadotropin deficiency after brain injury (TBI, ischemic stroke, SAH): the effects of hormone replacement on cognition, quality of life and body composition Randomized,...
This trial is set up to compare Zomacton to Genotropin for the treatment of growth hormone deficiency in children. The children will be treated for 1 year. Half of the patients will be tre...
Long-Term Outcomes, Genetics, and Pituitary Morphology in Patients with Isolated Growth Hormone Deficiency and Multiple Pituitary Hormone Deficiencies: A Single-Centre Experience of Four Decades of Growth Hormone Replacement.
Growth hormone (GH) has been used to treat children with GH deficiency (GHD) since 1966.
To extend available dosing options in the treatment of growth hormone deficiency, a comparative pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic phase-1 clinical study involving subcutaneous administration of grow...
Although growth hormone (GH) replacement is prescribed for patients with hypopituitarism due to many etiologies, it is not routinely prescribed for patients with GH deficiency (GHD) after cure of acro...
There is a paucity of studies on adherence to growth hormone treatment in growth-hormone deficient (GHD) adults. Therefore, this study reports on adherence to GH-replacement therapy in adults with GHD...
Daily subcutaneous injection of human growth hormone has been used for the treatment of growth hormone deficiency and growth failure but has led to poor patient compliance and renal toxicity. Thus, it...
A form of dwarfism caused by complete or partial GROWTH HORMONE deficiency, resulting from either the lack of GROWTH HORMONE-RELEASING FACTOR from the HYPOTHALAMUS or from the mutations in the growth hormone gene (GH1) in the PITUITARY GLAND. It is also known as Type I pituitary dwarfism. Human hypophysial dwarf is caused by a deficiency of HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE during development.
A 191-amino acid polypeptide hormone secreted by the human adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR), also known as GH or somatotropin. Synthetic growth hormone, termed somatropin, has replaced the natural form in therapeutic usage such as treatment of dwarfism in children with growth hormone deficiency.
An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by short stature, defective GROWTH HORMONE RECEPTOR, and failure to generate INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTOR I by GROWTH HORMONE. Laron syndrome is not a form of primary pituitary dwarfism (GROWTH HORMONE DEFICIENCY DWARFISM) but the result of mutation of the human GHR gene on chromosome 5.
The biologically active fragment of human growth hormone-releasing factor, consisting of GHRH(1-29)-amide. This N-terminal sequence is identical in several mammalian species, such as human, pig, and cattle. It is used to diagnose or treat patients with GROWTH HORMONE deficiency.
A pituitary tumor that secretes GROWTH HORMONE. In humans, excess HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE leads to ACROMEGALY.
