Tendon and ligament injuries are a frequent problem among athletes but also in the general population. The healing process is a prolonged process, and complete recovery of tissue strength is nearly never reached. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of local injection of human Growth Hormene on tendon collagen synthesis.

The purpose of this study is to examine the short-term effects of two different doses of growth hormone on the brain's secretion of growth hormone and the body's glucose metabolism. We hy...
To evaluate specific markers of cardiovascular risk before and after growth hormone replacement therapy in a population of growth hormone deficient adults, as compared to an age, gender, a...
The purpose of this study is to compare a new weekly administered growth hormone preparation with standard daily treatment in children with insufficient secretion of growth hormone
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,...
A six month study of ACP-001, a long-acting growth hormone product, versus standard human growth hormone therapy. ACP-001 will be given once-a-week, standard human growth hormone (hGH) wil...
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-lik...
The anti-obesity actions of growth hormone (GH) led us to investigate if GH signaling is able to regulate beige/brite fat development of white adipose tissue (WAT).
Available evidence suggests that the fertility of growth hormone deficient female patients could be decreased, although the responsible mechanisms are unknown. Taking into account the multiple effects...
Few large-scale studies regarding the impact of GH deficiency (GHD) on hematopoiesis in children have been reported. Our aim was to investigate hematopoiesis indices in a large cohort of GHD children ...
To discuss the rationale of developing long-acting growth hormone (LAGH) preparations, to describe the technologies designed to prolong GH action, and to address key issues regarding efficacy, safety,...
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.
