57 Longitudinal Study of Gh Secretion, Somatomedin and Growth in the Two Years following Cranial Irradiation

Abstract

In order to define characteristics and timing of GH deficiency after cranial irradiation a longitudinal study was performed on 16 children (2 to 15 yr) after > 3000 rads for medulloblastoma (n=9) or other posterior fossa tumors (n=7). At onset (TO), after 1 (T1) and 2 yr (T2) GH secretion was assessed by 1) GH peak response to AITT, 2) sleep GH peak, 3… (More)
