Background: GH deficiency (GHD) is an endocrine condition, caused by problems arising in the pituitary gland that does not produce sufficient quantities of GH. GHD is treated by replacing GH with one daily injections. Recent studies suggested that GH could be involved in regulation of certain stem cell subset potential and function. However, the exact effects of GH therapy on biology of stem cells in paediatric patients were not studied in detail.Methods...
