SOMATROPIN 4 I.U. (1.33 mg)/16 I.U. (5.32 mg)

Lyophilized for injection (S.C. - I.M.)




Somatropin or the growth hormone (GH) is one of the most abundant hormones produced by the anterior pituitary lobe. It is synthesized and secreted by specific cells, the somatotropes. GH daily secretion varies through life: its concentration is high in children, reaching maximum levels in adolescence, while in adulthood, the concentration decreases progressively. GH secretion occurs in a pulsatil and irregular way; between pulses, the flowing GH decreases up to levels that are sometimes non-detectable through some of the current methodologies. Secretion pulse amplitude achieves maximum levels at night and the most constant GH secretion occurs little after deep sleep onset.
