We know now that adults do suffer from GH deficiency and they do benefit from the short-term GH treatment. However, up to now , we do not know whether all adults with GH deficiency need growth hormone replacement. Should this therapy be a life- long? Is it safe? This project was supposed to be a part of the intensive clinical research in the field of GH deficiency in adults and, hopefully, has contributed to better understanding of some of the concrete issues in this area. This book will appeal to endocrinologists, clinical researchers and students with a special interest in the area of pituitary and neuroendocrinology.
