Research and Markets: Global Human Growth Hormone Market Report: 2015 Edition - Business Wire (press release) PDF Print

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/p854qs/global_human) has announced the addition of the "Global Human Growth Hormone Market Report: 2015 Edition" report to their offering.

Pituitary - the master gland of human body is responsible for controlling crucial hormonal secretion, which, in turn, regulates other key aspects of the body such as temperature, growth, thyroid functioning, urination, and production of other hormones. It is a pea sized gland situated at the base of brain and is a major component of human body as it expedites the response towards the surrounding environment and settings.

Any deformity or damage to the pituitary gland can adversely impact the production and activity level of the above mentioned hormones, thereby affecting the body work process and stunting the outcomes especially in the case of growth hormone. Marred pituitary function leads to either over or under secretion of the somatropin that is the growth hormone. Its over secretion causes disfiguration in the body parts like hands, face, feet, etc. whereas, its deficiency impedes the growth of body parts/whole body, thus leading to disease states like dwarfism or gigantism.

It is observed that the growth hormone related problems usually affect children and teenagers, but it is seen to grip adults as well though to a lesser extent. The major factors which vitiate the pituitary operations thus impairing the GH role include kidney malfunction, tumors/cancer especially associated with brain. There are some other unknown causes as well which are termed as idiopathic. Earlier, to deal with these predicaments, growth hormone used to be extracted from the human cadavers but, as time passed and evolution of technology/tools/techniques/R&D took place, the extraction of GH also got altered and many novel innovations and discoveries were made in the respective field.

Nowadays, many leading companies are heavily involved in the R&D process for devising longer acting and sustained release versions of the somatropin which are produced using the recombinant technology. The competition prevalent in the respective industry is heating up day by day. The human growth hormone market is monopolized by a few players viz. Pfizer, NovoNordisk, Eli Lilly, Sandoz and Roche.

The global HGH report discusses the key ongoing trends like global agreement for Long-Acting Human Growth Hormone (HGH-CTP), increasing use of biosimilar version of drugs and continuous growth of recombinant growth hormones market. On the industry development front, the current inclination is towards developing better treatments for Alzheimer's disease and advancements in needle free injections technology. Furthermore, the major factors driving the HGH market include rising cancer and CKD/ESRD cases and increasing healthcare expenditure on worldwide basis. In addition, a few factors posing challenges in front of the HGH industry are the problems in diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency, risks associated with use of recombinant growth hormone therapies and off-label HGH use which, to an extent, are hindering the growth and development of the same.

LA BioMed researcher launches study to examine medication adherence among ... - News-Medical.net PDF Print

Taking medications as prescribed is challenging for many patients, and following doctors' orders regarding medication often varies over time and among different patients. The consequences of failing to follow the prescribed medication regimen range from mild to life-threatening, depending on the medication and the illness or condition being treated.

To help improve patients' adherence to prescribed medication regimens, Jenny Shen, MD, a Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LA BioMed) researcher, is launching a study of medication adherence among patients with dialysis, a life-saving treatment for many Americans with life-threatening end-stage kidney disease. She will be examining why patients follow or don't follow their physicians' orders regarding their doses and the timing of cardiovascular medications. She also will study how the patients' decisions about their medication affect their health.

"We are going to study why variations in medication adherence exist, and if these variations are associated with an increased risk of heart attacks, stroke or death," Dr. Shen said. "We will also be researching to determine if the risks change depending on a patient's race and ethnicity. Results of our research will aid in the development of tools to improve adherence in this patient population, which may improve their health."

She said patients on dialysis take an average of 15 pills per day, far more than most other patients, and their compliance with their medication regimen is below 50%. Patients on dialysis also are more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease, with 42% dying from a cardiovascular-related cause.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at the National Institutes of Health awarded Dr. Shen $906,054 for her study, entitled "Trajectories of Adherence to Cardiovascular Medications in Patients on Dialysis." This award is for five years.
