Adjuvant recombinant human growth hormone stimulates insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 secretion in critically ill trauma patients.


The early catabolic phase of severe injury is associated with acute growth hormone (GH), insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), and insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-30 deficiency. The metabolic half-life of circulating IGF-1 is prolonged by its binding to IGFBP-3. The role of this binding protein in nutritionally repleted multiple-injury… (More)
