Summary of "Interactions between the growth hormone and cytokines - A review."

Numerous reports on the interactions between the immune and endocrine systems, especially growth hormone axis, can be found in the literature. Growth hormone acts mainly indirectly through insulin-like growth factor-1, which stimulates the growth and development processes, metabolism of lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates, and it also has a modulating effect on the cells of the immune system. Several studies have been conducted on the influence of growth hormone therapy on the immunological parameters in children and adults with and without growth hormone deficiency. However, there have been no definite results and some of them have been even contradictory. Some studies have suggested that administration of growth hormone increases the production of tumor necrosis factor and certain pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines; whereas other studies have demonstrated the lack of correlation between growth hormone and interleukins. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the available literature on the interaction between growth hormone and TNF-α, pro-inflammatory (IL-1β, IL-2, IL-6) and anti-inflammatory (IL-4, IL-10) interleukins.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A pituitary tumor that secretes GROWTH HORMONE. In humans, excess HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE leads to ACROMEGALY.

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.

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 polypeptide that is secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Growth hormone, also known as somatotropin, stimulates mitosis, cell differentiation and cell growth. Species-specific growth hormones have been synthesized.
