Circadian growth hormone secretion in short multitransfused prepubertal children with thalassaemia major


Growth hormone (GH) secretion was determined by evaluating circadian GH profiles for 24 h and GH responses to clonidine stimulation test and insulin-stimulated hypoglycaemia (ITT), in nine prepubertal children with β-thalassaemia major (TM) and 17 with non-GH deficient short stature (NGHDSS).
