The Effects of Delaying Puberty with GnRH Agonists in Patients with Idiopathic GH Deficiency

Dunger David B , Lindberg Anders , Dorr Helmut G , Camacho-Hubner Cecilia , Geffner Mitchell E

Background: Treating central precocious puberty with GnRH agonist (GnRHa) to increase height gain is well-established. Although not recommended, GnRHa have also been used in patients with IGHD at onset of puberty yet there are few data on its efficacy.Objective and hypotheses: Growth prediction models derived from KIGS (Pfizer International Growth Database) may provide an opportunity to estimate additional height gain produced by pubertal blockade.<p...

The Effect of Exenatide on Weight and Appetite in Overweight Adolescents and Young Adults with Prader–Willi Syndrome

Salehi Parisa , Hsu Isabel , Azen Colleen G , Mittelman Steven D , Geffner Mitchell E , Jeandron Debra

Background: Prader–Willi Syndrome (PWS) is a genetic disorder associated with hyperphagia and hyperghrelinemia with major morbidity due to obesity. The aetiology of hyperphagia is unknown, but presumed to be multifactorial, and, as ghrelin is orexigenic, high levels may contribute to weight issues in PWS. Currently, there is no effective medical treatment for hyperphagia in PWS, but targeting appetite could be beneficial. Exenatide (Byetta (synthetic exendin-4); AstraZene...

Does Skeletal Disproportion in Children with Idiopathic Short Stature Influence Response to GH Therapy?

Cutfield Wayne S , Lindberg Anders , Hofman Paul , Derraik Jose , Geffner Mitchell E , Camacho-Hubner Cecilia

Background: Children with ISS have an array of causes that lead to short stature and/or poor growth velocity. Genetic causes of short stature, notably SHOX mutations, can be associated with subtle skeletal disproportion with shorter limbs, manifesting as increased sitting-to-standing height ratios or SDS.Objective and hypothesis: Children with ISS and skeletal disproportions have a diminished growth response to GH treatment compared to chi...

Objective: KIGS (Pfizer International Growth Survey) was a large, international database of pediatric patients who received recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) as prescribed in real-world clinical settings. This analysis evaluated the long-term safety and efficacy data from all participants until KIGS close in 2012.Methods: Children with growth disorders and treated with rhGH (Genotropin® [somatropin]...
