Indication: For the long-term treatment of growth failure in children and adolescents with severe primary insulin-like growth factor-1 deficiency (Primary IGFD).Severe Primary IGFD is defined by:- height standard deviation score ≤ –3.0 and- basal IGF-1 levels below the 2.5th percentile for age and gender and- GH sufficiency.- Exclusion of secondary forms of IGF-1 deficiency, such as malnutrition, hypothyroidism, or chronic treatment with pharmacologic doses of anti-inflammatory steroids.Severe Primary IGFD includes patients with mutations in the GH receptor (GHR), post-GHR signaling pathway, and IGF-1 gene defects; they are not GH deficient, and therefore, they cannot be expected to respond adequately to exogenous GH treatment. It is recommended to confirm the diagnosis by conducting an IGF-1 generation test.
