The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of ALTU-238 in the treatment of children with growth hormone deficiency who have not yet reached puberty who lack the normal ability to make growth hormone themselves. This study will also test if ALTU-238 works as a weekly treatment.

To evaluate the safety and efficacy of PEG Somatropin Injection (Jintrolong®) in the treatment of short stature due to endogenous growth hormone deficiency (GHD) in the broad of populatio...
An international study in which patients with GHD were randomized to receive somatropin at a dose of either 3 microg/kg/day or 6 microg/kg/day for the first three months. The dose was then...
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 ...
Children with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) are reported to experience failure in psychological maturation, and to have a lack of self-confidence in social life, and depressive symptoms. The purpose...
Growth in patients with isolated growth hormone (GH) deficiency is heterogeneous despite treatment due to the low specificity of diagnostic tests, making it necessary to define efficacy variables.
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...
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.
