Observational Study of Somatropin Treatment in Children

2014-08-27 03:15:10 | BioPortfolio

Summary

GeNeSIS is an open-label, multinational, multicenter, observational study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Humatrope treatment.

GeNeSIS is a modular program that includes:

- Core study: Evaluating the safety and effectiveness of Humatrope in the observational setting

- Genetic Analysis Sub-study: Investigating the genetic defects underlying growth hormone(GH)deficiency and non-GH-deficient growth disorders

- Growth Prediction Sub-study: Working to validate and refine specific models to accurately predict growth response to GH

- SHOX Deficiency Sub-study: Elucidating the clinical, endocrine and radiological features of patients with SHOX deficiency due to loss of, or mutation in the SHOX gene (including patients with Turner syndrome)

- Neoplasia Sub-study: To characterize the natural history of neoplastic disease, especially in relation to recurrence/progression of primary neoplasia or development of secondary neoplasia in children with a history of neoplasia

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 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.

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.
