Humatrope is a man-made form of injectable human growth hormone and was approved in 1987 to help children who are growing slowly because they do not make enough growth hormone on their own. Since then, Humatrope has also been approved for the treatment of several additional growth disorders (idiopathic short stature, Turner syndrome, small for gestational age, SHOX deficiency) and for growth hormone deficiency in adults.
Humatrope is available in cartridges and also in a HumatroPen® injection device and in vials for use with a syringe and needle. Injectable HGH from Humatrope is one of the most popular on the market.
The dosage MUST be based on your age, weight, medical condition and response to treatment.
Humatrope Pen for Linear Growth Humatrope stimulates linear growth in pediatric patients who lack adequate normal endogenous growth hormone. In vitro, preclinical, and clinical testing have demonstrated that Humatrope is therapeutically equivalent to human growth hormone of pituitary origin and achieves equivalent pharmacokinetic profiles in normal adults.
