Predicting response to growth hormone treatment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Despite extensive experience over the past 25 y in managing growth failure with growth hormone (rhGH), predicting treatment efficacy in individual children remains a challenge. In this paper, the authors present the methods that are currently available to clinicians for predicting the growth response, and other more sophisticated techniques which have the potential to pave the way for individualised therapy in the future. © Dr. K C Chaudhuri Foundation 2011.
