Human growth hormone (HGH), also referred to as somatotropin, is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, helps in cell reproduction as well as regeneration in humans. It is therefore important in human development.
New York, March 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Global Human Growth Hormone Market By Application By Distribution Channel By Region, Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2019 - 2025" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05876897/?utm_source=GNW
Growth hormone (GH) deficiency in humans is triggered when the pituitary gland does not synthesize enough HGH concentration. This deficiency in humans is treated by subcutaneous injection of recombinant human growth hormone. In the pituitary gland, the human body naturally produces growth hormones. The growth hormone is processed and secreted by somatotropic cells present in the lateral wings of the anterior pituitary gland.
The growth hormone helps in increasing height during childhood, raises calcium retention levels, strengthens and improves bone mineralization. It also increases the muscle mass through sarcomere hypertrophy, increases protein synthesis, promotes lipolysis, enhances the growth of all internal organs excluding the brain. The hormone has a key role to play in homeostasis, it helps to reduce glucose uptake by the liver.
Growth hormone (GH) treatment has only been used to help children with severe growth hormone deficiency (GHD). Nevertheless, today, with an excess of recombinant human GH (rhGH), it is also used to treat a wide range of other conditions. RhGH may be used to treat short-term GH deficiency (GHD), insufficiency, and other disorders leading to poor growth. At present, it is also used in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF), Prader Willi syndrome (PWS), Turner syndrome (TS), small gestational age (SGA) with no upward development of 2 years, idiopathic short stature (ISS) and some short-term dysmorphic syndromes. Through the growth hormone therapy, many children can attain adult heights better than expected- on the basis of their growth pattern of pretreatment.
Based on Application, the market is segmented into Small for Gestational Age, Prader-Willi Syndrome, Idiopathic Short Stature, Turner Syndrome, Growth Hormone Deficiency and Other Applications. Based on the type of Growth Hormone Deficiency, the application of Human Growth Hormone is studied across Pediatric Growth Hormone Deficiency and Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency. Based on Distribution Channel, the market is segmented into Retail Pharmacy, Hospital Pharmacy, Specialty Pharmacy and Online Pharmacy. Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.

Strategies deployed in Human Growth Hormone (hGH) Market
Nov-2019: Novartis signed an agreement to acquire The Medicines Company, a biopharmaceutical company. The acquisition would expand the biopharmaceuticals business of the company.
Jul-2019: Pfizer acquired Therachon, a clinical-stage biotechnology company. The acquisition enabled the company in developing innovtive medicines for addresssing the medical needs of people with rare diseases.
Jun-2019: Ipsen extended its agreement with Debiopharm for the renewal of their Decapeptyl. Decapeptyl is a natural gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). Under this partnership, the companies aimed to develop, manufacture, and distribute Decapeptyl across Europe and certain Asian and African markets.
Mar-2019: Ipsen introduced a new pre-filled syringe for its blockbuster rare disease drug Somatuline (lanreotide) in the EU. Somatuline is used for the treatment of acromegaly, a rare disease caused by excess growth hormone production.
Jan-2019: Pfizer Mexico came into partnership with JOY, a FamilyTech Wearables Company. Under this partnership, the latter company aims to distribute its first product, the Octopus Watch to the children with a chronic health condition known as growth hormone deficiency (GHD). JOY would distribute its product in Mexico with the help of Pfizer.
