objective Low growth hormone (GH) secretion and hypogonadism are common in patients with Prader–Willi syndrome (PWS). In this study we present the effects of GH treatment on body composition and metabolism in adults with PWS. 
The use of growth hormone therapy in adults with Prader‐Willi syndrome: A systematic review
TLDR
The aim of this study was to conduct a systematic review to evaluate the effects of GH on body composition, bone health and cardiovascular health in adults with PWS. Expand
Five‐years growth hormone (GH) treatment in adults with Prader‐Willi syndrome
TLDR
It is shown that 1 year of growth hormone treatment to adults with Prader‐Willi syndrome has beneficial effects on body composition, and the present observational study was to re‐evaluate this cohort, with focus on long‐term GH treatment. Expand
Effects of recombinant human growth hormone therapy in adults with Prader–Willi syndrome: a meta‐analysis
TLDR
A meta‐analysis of pertinent studies on the effects of recombinant human GH in PWS adults and its role in Prader–Willi syndrome adults found no significant differences between the studies. Expand
Growth Hormone Therapy in Adults with Prader-Willi Syndrome
TLDR
The benefits of growth hormone therapy on body composition, muscle strength, exercise capacity, certain measures of sleep-disordered breathing, metabolic parameters, quality of life, and cognition are covered in detail along with potential adverse effects and guidelines for initiating and monitoring therapy. Expand
Metabolic health profile in young adults with Prader–Willi syndrome: results of a 2‐year randomized, placebo‐controlled, crossover GH trial
TLDR
GH‐treated young adults with Prader–Willi syndrome who have attained adult height benefit from continuation of growth hormone treatment, as GH maintained their improved body composition, whereas fat mass increased during the placebo period. Expand
Growth hormone treatment and adverse events in Prader–Willi syndrome: data from KIGS (the Pfizer International Growth Database)
TLDR
Evaluated the response to recombinant GH treatment and adverse events in children with Prader–Willi syndrome from KIGS, the Pfizer International Growth Database. Expand
Prader–Willi syndrome and growth hormone treatment in children and adults
TLDR
This review focuses on the benefits, safety and adverse effects of GH treatment in children and adults with Prader–Willi syndrome. Expand
Growth hormone treatment for two years is safe and effective in adults with Prader-Willi syndrome.

TLDR
The known beneficial effects of GH treatment upon body composition in PWS are maintained during two years continuous treatment and with appropriate control, GH is a safe treatment option in adults with PWS. Expand
Growth Hormone Therapy in Adults with Prader-Willi Syndrome
TLDR
It is documented that GH treatment in children with PWS appears to normalize them to an adult height with improvement in body composition, an important outcome for individuals with this disorder. Expand
Three years of growth hormone treatment in young adults with Prader-Willi syndrome: sustained positive effects on body composition
TLDR
Three years of growth hormone treatment in young adults with Prader-Willi syndrome maintains the positive effects on body composition attained during childhood, and adults with PWS benefit from longer-term growth hormones treatment. Expand

Is There Growth Hormone Deficiency in Prader-Willi Syndrome?
TLDR
Arguments to define the presence of genuine growth hormone (GH) deficiency (GHD) in patients with Prader-Labhart-Willi syndrome are presented and it is concluded that GHD may account for several features of PWS. Expand

Cardiovascular risk factors improve during 3 years of growth hormone therapy in Prader-Willi syndrome
TLDR
Several cardiovascular risk factors are already present in prepubertal children with Prader-Willi-syndrome and they are improved by growth hormone treatment, acting both on body composition and lipid metabolism, except for abdominal fat distribution before therapy. Expand
Growth hormone improves body composition, fat utilization, physical strength and agility, and growth in Prader-Willi syndrome: A controlled study.
TLDR
GH treatment of children with Prader-Willi syndrome accelerated growth, decreased percent body fat, and increased fat oxidation but did not significantly increase total REE, suggesting that GH treatment may have value in reducing some physical disabilities experienced by children with PWS. Expand

TLDR
The results demonstrated that individuals with Prader‐Willi syndrome do not show the predicted insulin resistance that is seen in obese children without the syndrome, and these data do not support the hypothesis that the high incidence of diabetes mellitus in patients withPrader‐ willi syndrome is simply the result of obesity and therefore suggest a different aetiology.

TLDR
It is suggested that GH, in a conventional replacement dose, has several potentially beneficial effects in GH-deficient adults and therefore encourage future long-term trials. Expand
