Non-compliance in children receiving growth hormone (GH) treatment is often caused by pain on injection and difficulties in administration of GH. It has been suggested that automatic needle insertion diminishes pain perception. We quantitatively measured pain intensity on injection with two prototype pens for GH administration, providing either manual or(More)
OBJECTIVE Current growth hormone (GH) therapy with daily subcutaneous injections results in elevated serum concentrations of GH lasting for several hours, whereas physiologic GH secretion is characterized by a short-duration peak and low basal concentrations. A closer imitation of this pattern might be achieved by administering GH nasally. We studied the(More)
