    • Growth hormone (GH) releasing hormone (GHRH) is a hypothalamic factor that stimulates GH secretion. It acts by activating a seven transmembrane domain G proteincoupled receptor of 423 amino acids expressed by the somatotroph cells of the pituitary gland (GHRH receptor, GHRH-R). Familial isolated growth hormone deficiency (IGHD) can be caused by mutations in the GHRH-R gene both in humans and mice...

    • Growth hormone (GH) is a potent anabolic hormone, and its clinical use has been extended to the improvement of metabolic imbalance in many disease,s including autoimmune disorders treated with glucocorticoids (GCs). GH has, however, a potential action on the immune system, and this might be a demerit in GH therapy for those diseases...

    • Growth hormone (GH) is an anabolic cytokine hormone regulating linear growth in childhood and normal body composition in adults. The current therapeutic regimen for GH replacement requires once-daily subcutaneous injections which is inconvenient and expensive...

    • Growth hormone (GH) is a multifunctional hormone produced in the anterior pituitary that promotes postnatal growth of skeletal and soft tissues. GH secretion and release are complex phenomena depending on several intrinsic and extrinsic factors modulating the release of two hypothalamic hormones, GH releasing hormone and somatostatin. Any genetic or acquired disorder that impairs GH secretion or action causes a pathological phenotype characterized by harmonic short stature with isolated GH deficiency (IGHD) or combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD)...
