Individual responses to growth hormone (GH) treatment are variable. Short-term generation of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is recognized as a potential marker of sensitivity to GH treatment. This prospective, phase IV study used an integrated genomic analysis to identify markers associated with 1-month change in IGF-I (ΔIGF-I) following initiation of(More)
BACKGROUND Accurately monitoring adherence to treatment with recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGH) enables appropriate intervention in cases of poor adherence. The electronic r-hGH auto-injector, easypod™, automatically records the patient's adherence to treatment. This study evaluated adherence to treatment of children who started using the(More)
Recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGH) is indicated for pediatric patients with a variety of growth disorders. Until recently, analysis of adherence to treatment has been limited by recall bias and reliance on self-reporting. Accurate recorded data on r-hGH use can now be collected using the easypod™ auto-injector. The multinational easypod™ connect(More)
