Dose-Response Relationship of Growth Hormone Therapy
Although human growth hormone (hGH) has been administered to growth hormone deficient patients for over 25 years (1), minimal data has been published on the relationship of dose to response. This paper will review the dose-response information which is now available for pituitary hGH, based on data derived from the initial year of treatment in growth hormone deficient patients.
