OBJECTIVE Two forms of recombinant growth hormone that accelerate the healing of skin graft donor sites in severely burned children were evaluated. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Growth hormone has been shown to reduce wound healing times in burned pediatric patients. Through genetic engineering, several different forms have been synthesized; however, not all are marketed currently. Two forms of growth hormone were used in these studies, Protropin (Genentech, Inc., San Francisco, CA), a commercially… CONTINUE READING
