Human growth hormone (hGH) or growth hormone therapy (GHT) is a
biosynthetic hormone replacement therapy. It is identical to the
natural growth hormone produced by the body. As it is a protein, it
needs to be injected in order to work properly.
GHT is normally used to treat children who are not growing due to an
underlying medical condition. It could also treat adults affected by
growth hormone deficiency.
For children who need daily growth hormone injections, improvements
and advancements in device design have made a big difference.
Today, there are pens with many different useful features to choose
from. You can find out more about our devices here.
We began pioneering advances in growth hormone therapeutics more
than 30 years ago, and three decades later our growth disorder
treatments are still benefiting people around the world.
Willing to bring innovative solutions to our patients, our
scientists have applied our long-standing expertise in protein
engineering to develop a long-acting growth hormone suitable for
more about our ambitious R&D pipeline.
