It is now widely recognised that growth hormone has an important role in the health of adults as well as the normal development of children. This authoritative compilation is the first to look in depth at the role of growth hormone in healthy adults, the impact of growth hormone deficiency and its effective treatment. The availability of biosynthetic growth hormone has fuelled much research and interest in this area. This timely new publication provides a rigorous, balanced and scientific account of growth hormone deficiency in adults and therapeutic potential now available as a result of synthetic growth hormone. The volume surveys the physiology of growth hormone secretion and action, diagnostic and clinical aspects of growth hormone deficiency, growth hormone replacement therapy, and concludes with an overview of growth hormone and ageing. The volume is the most authoritative, comprehensive and detailed account available. The team of authors is drawn from leading centres of clinical research from around the world. It will be an essential source of reference for all those involved in growth hormone research and the treatment of growth hormone deficiency.
