Abstract: Changes observed during adult GH deficiency (GHD) are most often reversed with the administration of recombinant human GH (rhGH). To avoid daily injections, a long-acting GH molecule has been obtained by covalent binding of polyethylene glycol (PEG) with rhGH (PEG-GH), allowing weekly s.c. injections. This study was designed to assess its efficacy and safety, in adult GHD subjects.
