OBJECTIVE Recombinant human growth hormone is being used increasingly in the treatment of GH deficiency in adults. In addition to erythropoietin, insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) has been demonstrated to stimulate hematopoiesis in animals, especially rodents. We have determined the effect of growth hormone (GH) administration on haematopoiesis. PATIENTS AND DESIGN Seventeen patients (10 males and 7 females; mean age 47 +/- 2 years; range 30-59) with biochemically proven adult-onset GH… CONTINUE READING
