The protein polymorphism of the growth hormone receptor characterized by the genomic deletion of exon 3 has been linked to the magnitude of the first-year-growth response to growth hormone (GH) in girls with Turner syndrome.
Objective: to study the long-term effect of GH therapy in Turner syndrome in correlation to this GHR polymorphism in a mainly retrospective design (chart-review).

This study investigated the effect of growth hormone on the growth of infants and toddlers with Turner syndrome during 2 years of treatment with growth hormone. This was compared with the...
This study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGH) treatment in young girls with Turner Syndrome.
This study is a multicenter, open-label, observational, postmarketing surveillance study of Genentech growth hormone (GH) products in the treatment of girls with Turner syndrome in the Uni...
Growth hormone treatment is used in girls with Turner syndrome to increase final height. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of growth hormone treatment on body composition and...
The purposes of this study are to learn whether treatment with an androgen type hormone will improve the visual-spatial problems associated with Turner syndrome, and to evaluate the effect...
We investigated time trends in age, gender, growth hormone (GH) dose and height standard deviation score (SDS) in children with GH deficiency (GHD), born small for gestational age (SGA) or with Turner...
This study aimed to systematically review the available literature on "quality of life" (QoL) or "health-related quality of life" (HRQoL) in Turner syndrome (TS) patients and to analyze the relations ...
Previous case reports have suggested a possible association of congenital hyperinsulinism with Turner syndrome.
Patients with homozygous intronic pseudoexon GH receptor(GHR) mutations(6Ψ) have growth hormone Insensitivity(GHI) (growth failure, IGF1 deficiency and normal/elevated serum GH). We report 9 patients...
Most girls with Turner Syndrome have hypergonadotropic hypogonadism and need hormonal replacement - for induction of puberty and later maintaining secondary sex characteristics, attaining peak bone ma...
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 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 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 pituitary tumor that secretes GROWTH HORMONE. In humans, excess HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE leads to ACROMEGALY.
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
