Sensitivity to growth hormone - The perspective. Round table discussion

John P. Monson, Ron G. Rosenfeld

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


This round table discussion addressed the utility of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) as a predictor of growth hormone (GH) action, the relationship between IGF-I response to GH and growth response, the possibility of a spectrum of both GH sensitivity and IGF-I sensitivity, and an examination of the possible need to acknowledge indicators of GH action in children which are distinct from those in adults.
