  • Biochemical growth hormone deficiency is prevalent among human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients, but if this condition is clinically relevant remains challenging. (unimore.it)
  • The aim is to prospectively compare the growth hormone deficiency/insulin-like growth factor-1 status of 71 human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with impaired growth hormone response to growth hormone releasing hormone + Arginine with that of 65 hypopituitary patients affected by a true growth hormone deficiency secondary to pituitary disease. (unimore.it)
  • In all the patients total body fat was associated with both growth hormone peak and area under the curve at stepwise linear regression analysis. (unimore.it)
  • The degree of growth hormone deficiency is more severe in hypopituitary than in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients, suggesting that the function of growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor-1 axis is partially rescued in the latter thanks to a preserved pituitary secretory reserve. (unimore.it)
  • However, while the growth promoting potential of pGH therapy is unequivecol, the modes of action of the hormone remain unclear, and there is only limited information as to how the animals responsiveness to this technology might be modified by factors such as sex, genotype or nutrient intake.
