Effects of long-term growth hormone therapy on adrenal steroidogenesis in Turner syndrome.

Abstract

It has been shown that growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1) enhance steroidogenesis responsiveness to ACTH in cultured adrenal cells. To investigate the GH effect on adrenal steroidogenesis in non-GH-deficient subjects, we studied 9 girls with Turner syndrome (chronological age 5.5-7.2 years; bone age 5-7 years). In all subjects an… (More)
