Humatrope® (somatropin for injection) is used to treat:
- Children who do not make enough growth hormone on their own, have short stature associated with Turner syndrome, or have SHOX deficiency; 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; were born smaller than normal for the number of weeks of pregnancy and who do not catch up in height by 2 to 4 years of age.
- 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 in 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.
