Abstract: The overall aim of this thesis was to study clinical and genetic factors that influence response to growth hormone replacement therapy (GHRT) in GH deficient (GHD) adults. The patients were part of a cohort of adults with hypopituitarism and severe GHD who were studied before and after 12 months of GHRT. The dose regimen was individualized in order to attain normal IGF-I levels. Logistic regression (LR) analysis was used to identify good and poor responders to GHRT. The candidate gene approach w... more
