Adult onset: Patients with GHD in adulthood are defined as patients with known hypothalamic pituitary pathology and at least one additional known deficiency of a pituitary hormone excluding prolactin. These patients should undergo a single dynamic test in order to diagnose or exclude a GHD.
Childhood onset: In patients with childhood onset isolated GHD (no evidence of hypothalamic pituitary disease or cranial irradiation), two dynamic tests should be performed after completion of growth, except for those having low insulin like growth factor I (IGF I) concentrations (< 2 standard deviation score (SDS)), who may be considered for one test. The cut-off point of the dynamic test should be strict.

10 mg and 20 mg: powder and solvent for prolonged release suspension for injection:
Somatropin Biopartners is indicated in children and adolescents aged 2 to 18 years for long term treatment of growth failure due to insufficient secretion of endogenous growth hormone.
