Growth hormone releasing hormone in the assessment and long-term treatment of growth hormone deficiency.
The secretion of hGH after the administration of the analogue of growth hormone releasing hormone, GHRH (1-29)NH2, to 8 normal adults and 41 short children has been studied.

The hGH response to GHRH was similar in normal adults and short stature children,...Expand abstract
