05/01/1990 - "Somatotropin pulse frequency and basal concentrations are increased in acromegaly and are reduced by successful therapy."
04/01/1983 - "Following successful treatment of acromegaly (growth hormone less than 5 micrograms/l) there was a significant reduction in skin thickness (P less than 0.02 males: P less than 0.01 females). "
10/01/1995 - "Treatment of acromegaly is effective in reversing the reduced life-span of patients only when serum growth hormone (GH) concentrations are lowered to less than 2.5 micrograms/l. "
08/01/1990 - "Eleven of 15 patients (73%) had growth hormone levels less than 10 ng/ml. Radiation use in acromegaly remains a safe and effective modality assuming careful attention is paid to technique, total dose, and fraction size."

11/01/2000 - "The symptoms resolved over 2 months as the tumor shrunk in size and growth hormone was dramatically reduced."
07/01/2003 - "All six patients with growth hormone-producing tumors responded well to therapy. "
10/01/2015 - "A number of previous studies have investigated the relationship between the growth hormone replacement therapy (GHRT) and risk of tumor recurrence/progression; however, the evidence remains controversial. "
01/01/2015 - "Description of the SAGhE Cohort: A Large European Study of Mortality and Cancer Incidence Risks after Childhood Treatment with Recombinant Growth Hormone."
10/07/2014 - "Fasting levels of high-sensitivity growth hormone predict cardiovascular morbidity and mortality: the Malmö Diet and Cancer study."
01/01/1991 - "It has shown that therapeutic efficacy depends on initial sizes of adenomas and the level of growth hormone as well as on the time of observation. "
06/01/2015 - "The aim of the study is to determine the effect of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) on remission and development of new pituitary deficiency according to the different subtypes of growth hormone (GH) secreting adenomas. "
06/01/2008 - "This study evaluates the safety and efficacy of gamma knife radiosurgery (GKRS) in patients with a growth hormone-secreting adenoma. "
02/01/2013 - "To analyse the characteristics and short- and long-term surgical outcome of patients who underwent transsphenoidal surgery for a growth hormone (GH)-secreting adenoma in our centre and to determine predictive factors of remission. "
01/01/2008 - "In eight (67%) of 12 patients with growth hormone-secreting adenomas, hormonal remission was achieved postoperatively. "
|4.||Pituitary Neoplasms (Pituitary Adenoma)
09/01/2014 - "Cavernous sinus (CS) invasion is the most important preoperative predictor of remission in the surgical treatment of growth hormone-producing pituitary adenomas. "
09/01/2001 - "Although it seems to be very effective in controlling growth and secretion of the growth hormone-secreting pituitary adenomas, there is a chance that some major risks from gamma knife radiosurgery might occur. "

09/01/1999 - "The efficacy of long-term growth hormone treatment and the optimal treatment modalities in Turner's syndrome are still controversial. "
04/01/1996 - "Since growth hormone is effective in increasing the height of girls with Turner's syndrome, it is important to dispose of growth and bone maturation curves in a large number of untreated patients. "
11/01/2015 - "The aim of this study was the evaluation of Turner syndrome inside the Albanian population, its clinical, cytological and genetic characteristics, the accompanying pathologies, and the efficacy of the treatment with the growth hormone. "
11/01/2015 - "Turner syndrome in Albania and the efficacy of its treatment with growth hormone."
01/01/2011 - "Height can be improved permanently by growth hormone (GH) treatment, as in children with Turner syndrome or born small for gestational age. "
