HEADON (Somatropin-recombinant Human Growth Hormone)

HEADON (Somatropin) is a neuropeptide, also called GHIH (Growth Hormone-Inhibiting Hormone). It regulates various physiological functions and exerts an inhibitory action on numerous secondary hormones such as glucagon and insulin.

It is identical to the main form of the naturally occurring human growth hormone, a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in humans and other animals.

It is used in the pediatric population to treat short stature due to growth hormone deficiency (including idiopathic [of unknown cause] growth hormone deficiency), Turner syndrome, Noonan syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, short stature homeobox-containing gene (SHOX) deficiency, chronic renal insufficiency, idiopathic short stature and children small for gestational age.

It is also used to treat the intestinal disorder (short bowel syndrome) or HIV-related weight loss or wasting. It also regulates gastrointestinal tract activities like gastrointestinal motility and secretion of gastrin and secretin.
