|- Brief summary||Study evaluating the effects of GH-therapy versus no GH therapy in children with short stature born after intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) (age 3.00 tot 7.99 years). |
Randomisation of 120 children to one of the study groups after stratification for age and parental height.
During 3 years 2/3 of the children (n = 80) will be treated with biosynthetic growth hormone, 3 IU/m2/day (GH-group), and 1/3 of the children (n = 40) will not receive growth hormone therapy (control group).
Children with GHD (max GH peak < 20 mU/L during two GH stimulation tests) will not be randomised but will receive GH therapy from the start of the study (as a separate GHD group).
After 3 years the children of the control group will also start with GH therapy, 3 IU/m2/day. GH therapy will be continued in all groups until attainment of final height.
In 1999 a group of 30 older IUGR children (age > 8 years) was added to the original protocol.
