Product Description

Humatrope (Somatropin)

What is somatropin?

Somatropin is a form of human growth hormone important for the growth of bones and muscles. Somatropin is used to treat growth failure in children and adults who lack natural growth hormone. This includes people with short stature due to Noonan syndrome, Turner syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, short stature at birth with no catch-up growth, and other causes. Somatropin is also used in adults to treat short bowel syndrome, or to prevent severe weight loss related to AIDS.

Humatrope is used to treat children who are short or growing slowly because they:

  • Do not make enough growth hormone on their own
  • Have Turner Syndrome
  • Have idiopathic short stature, which means they are shorter than 98.8% of other children of the same age and sex, are growing at a rate not likely to allow them to reach normal adult height, and for whom no other cause of short stature can be found
  • Have SHOX deficiency
  • Were born smaller than normal for the number of weeks of pregnancy and do not catch up in height by 2 to 4 years of age

Humatrope is used to treat adults who have growth hormone deficiency that began either in:

  • Adulthood (as a result of pituitary disease, hypothalamic disease, surgery, radiation therapy, or trauma); or
  • Childhood. Patients treated for growth hormone deficiency in childhood whose bones have stopped growing should be reevaluated to determine if they should continue growth hormone
