Growth Hormone (GH) Treatment in Skeletal Dysplasias – Short-term Results in Prepubertal Children Reported in KIGS

Hagenas Lars , Lindberg Anders , Camacho-Hubner Cecilia , Rooman Raoul

Background: A total of 83,803 patients who received rhGH therapy were enrolled in KIGS (Pfizer International Growth Database) including 748 patients diagnosed with a specified or unspecified skeletal dysplasia. The most prevalent diagnoses were hypochondroplasia (n=238: Female=111, Male=127), achondroplasia (n=113: F=51, M=62) and Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis, LWD (n=88: F=59, M=29).Objective: To analyse the first year response...

Validation of Prediction Models for Near Final Adult Height in Children with Idiopathic Growth Hormone Deficiency Treated with Growth Hormone for 1 Year

Straetemans Saartje , De Schepper Jean , Thomas Muriel , Verlinde Franciska , Rooman Raoul

Background: An accurate prediction of final height after the first year of growth hormone (GH) treatment may help clinicians to give parents and children more realistic expectations.Objective and hypotheses: To validate two prediction models (with and without max. GH peak) for near final adult height (nFAH) by Ranke et al.Method: Height data of 142 (93 male) idiopathic GH deficient (iGHD) children, treated with GH for at l...

Near-Adult Height in a Large Cohort of Patients with Turner Syndrome and Noonan Syndrome Treated with rhGH: Results from Pfizer International Growth Database

Ranke Michael , Lindberg Anders , Camacho-Hubner Cecilia , Reinehr Thomas , Rooman Raoul

Background: Pfizer International Growth Database (KIGS) contains data of Turner syndrome (TS; N=7378) or Noonan syndrome (NS; N=613, female=224; male=389) patients who were treated with rhGH.Objective: To compare the effect of rhGH on near adult height (NAH) in TS and NS patients. We hypothesized a similar outcome in both diagnoses. Determinants of the treatment outcome in NS patients were also assessed.Patients a...

First-year Growth Response to GH in Relation to Final Height Outcome in Prepubertal Children with Idiopathic GH Deficiency

Straetemans Saartje , Thomas Muriel , Tenoutasse Sylvie , De Schepper Jean , Rooman Raoul

Background: Several definitions of poor growth response to first-year GH treatment, have been proposed based on the observed response of a large group of patients.Objective and hypotheses: Since a complete compensation of the height deficit is expected in children with GH deficiency (GHD) treated with GH, we have studied the different parameters for the first-year growth response in relation to the adult height gain in prepubertal children with iGHD....

Non-Immune Diabetes Mellitus and Neurodegeneration: Two Distinct Cases of Wolfram Syndrome

Lemay Annelies , Sinnema Margje , den Brinker Marieke , Dotremont Hilde , France Annick , Rooman Raoul , Straetemans Saartje

Background: Wolfram syndrome features diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus, optic nerve atrophy, and deafness (DIDMOAD). Especially the neurological degeneration usually leads to a very poor prognosis. We present two cases of Wolfram syndrome, an autosomal dominant and an autosomal recessive type, caused by heterozygous mutations in the WFS1 gene.Case report: Case 1: a 13-year-old girl with a history of progressive sensorineuronal hearing loss ...

Criteria for First-Year Growth Response to Growth Hormone Treatment in Prepubertal Children with Growth Hormone Deficiency: Do they Predict Final Height Outcome?

Straetemans Saartje , De Schepper Jean , Thomas Muriel , Tenoutasse Sylvie , Beauloye Véronique , Rooman Raoul , BESPEED the members of

Background/Aim: Several criteria for the first year growth response (FYGR) to growth hormone (GH) treatment have been proposed. We explored which FYGR criteria predict best the final height outcome after GH treatment in prepubertal children with GH deficiency (GHD).Methods: Height data of 129 GHD children (83 boys) treated with GH for at least 4 consecutive years with at least 1 year before pubertal onset, were retrieved...

A 2-Year Multi-Centre, Open Label, Randomized Two Arm Study of Genotropin Treatment in Very Young Children Born Small for Gestational Age: Early Growth and Neurodevelopment

De Schepper Jean , Vanderfaeillie Johan , Mullis Primus-E , Rooman Raoul , Matthews Lisa , Dilleen Maria , Browning Richard , Gomez Roy , Wollmann Hartmut

Background: There are limited data available on the efficacy and safety of GH treatment in very young (<30 months) short children, born small for gestational age (SGA).Objectives: To determine the effect of 24 months of GH treatment on body height, BMI, and head growth as well as overall psychomotor development (using the Bayley Scale of Infant Development (BSID-II)) and demonstrate its safety in young (aged between 19 and 29 months) short SGA childr...

The ZOMATRIP Study: Four Year Combination Therapy of GH and GnRHa in Girls with a Short Predicted Adult Height During Early Puberty: Adult Height Outcome

Background: A combination of GH and a gonadotropin releasing hormone analogue (GnRH a) is hypothesized to improve adult height in children with a poor adult height prediction.Study design: In this multicenter study, 24 girls in early puberty (bone age ≤12.0 y),with a predicted adult height ≤151.0 cm and normal body proportions were treated with GH (Zomacton) 50 μg/kg per day and triptorelin (Gonapeptyl) 3.75 mg/month SC or IM (for 4 year...

Background: A combination of GH and a GnRH agonist is sometimes used to improve adult height in children with a poor height prediction, only few studies support this.Study design: In this multicenter study, 24 short girls in early puberty, with a bone age below 12.0 years, an adult height prediction below 151.0 cm and normal body proportions were treated with GH (Zomacton) transjections 50 μg/kg per day and triptorelin (Decapeptyl) i.m.
