Genotropin uses and description

Sort by popularity
Genotropin - Somatropin is a form of human growth hormone. Human growth hormone is important in the body for the growth of bones and muscles.

Somatropin is used to treat growth failure in children and adults who lack natural growth hormone, and in those with chronic kidney failure, Noonan syndrome, Turner syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, short stature at birth with no catch-up growth, and other causes. Somatropin is also used to prevent severe weight loss in people with AIDS, or to treat short bowel syndrome.

Somatropin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Used for: Treating certain children or adults whose bodies do not produce enough growth hormone. It is also used to treat certain children who are not growing normally due to Turner syndrome or Prader-Willi syndrome, or who were born small for gestational age (SGA). It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Genotropin is a growth hormone. It works by stimulating growth in patients who do not make enough natural growth hormone.

Used in the treatment of dwarfism and growth failure, growth hormone (hGH) stimulates skeletal growth in pediatric patients with growth failure due to a lack of adequate secretion of endogenous GH. Skeletal growth is accomplished at the epiphyseal plates at the ends of a growing bone. Growth and metabolism of epiphyseal plate cells are directly stimulated by GH and one of its mediators, IGF-I (insulin-like growth factor).

Indication: For treatment of dwarfism, acromegaly and prevention of HIV-induced weight loss

Somatotropin refers to the growth hormone produced natively and naturally in animals, whereas the term somatropin refers to growth hormone produced by recombinant DNA technology, and is abbreviated "rhGH" in humans.

Adults: Replacement therapy in adults with pronounced growth hormone deficiency. Children: Growth disturbances due to insufficient secretion of growth hormone and growth disturbances associated with Turner\'s syndrome.

Growth disturbance caused by insufficient secretion of endogenous growth hormone or by gonadal dysgenesis (Turner\'s syndrome).

Growth disturbance due to insufficient secretion of growth hormone or associated with gonadal dysgenesis or Turner\'s syndrome which is a chromosome aberration. Replacement therapy in adults with prolonged growth hormone deficiency.

Adults: Replacement therapy in adults with pronounced growth hormone deficiency (GHD). Adult Onset: Patients who have severe GHD associated with multiple hormone deficiencies as a result of known hypothalamic or pituitary pathology and who have at least 1 known deficiency of a pituitary hormone, not being prolactin. These patients should undergo appropriate dynamic test in order to diagnose or exclude a growth hormone deficiency. Children: Growth disturbance due to insufficient secretion of GHD and growth disturbance associated with Turner syndrome or chronic renal insufficiency. Growth disturbance (current height SDS below -2.5 and parental adjusted height SDS below -1) in short children born SGA, with a birth weight and/or length below -2 SD, who failed to show catch-up growth (HV SDS <0 during the last year) by 4 years of age or later. Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), for improvement of growth and body composition. The diagnosis of PWS should be confirmed by appropriate genetic testing. Childhood Onset: Patients who have GHD during childhood as a result of congenital, genetic, acquired or idiopathic causes. Patients with childhood onset GHD should be re-evaluated for growth hormone secretory capacity after completion of longitudinal growth. In patients with a high likelihood for persistent GHD ie, a congenital cause or GDH secondary to a pituitary/hypothalamic disease or insult, IGF-I SDS <2 off growth hormone treatment for at least 4 weeks should be considered sufficient evidence of profound GHD. All other patients will require IGF-I assay and 1 growth hormone stimulation test.

Replacement of endogenous GH in adults with GH deficiency (GHD) of either childhood- or adult-onset etiology. Long-term treatment of children with short stature associated with Turner syndrome. Treatment of children with growth failure caused by Prader-Willi syndrome; treatment of growth failure in children born small for gestational age who fail to manifest catch-up growth by 2 yr of age. Long-term treatment of children with idiopathic short stature.

Growth hormone (GH) is a protein-based peptide hormone. It stimulates growth, cell reproduction and regeneration in humans and other animals. Growth hormone is a 191-amino acid, single-chain polypeptide which is synthesized, stored, and secreted by the somatotroph cells within the lateral wings of the anterior pituitary gland. Somatotropin refers to the growth hormone produced natively and naturally in animals, whereas the term somatropin refers to growth hormone produced by recombinant DNA technology, and is abbreviated "HGH" in humans.
