Bone Health in Childhood Growth Hormone Deficiency: A Study of Bone Microarchitecture and Serum Turnover markers
Bone health in children who are short
Sponsor: Pfizer
Enrolling: Male and Female Patients
Clinic Visits: 1
IRB Number: AAAQ4313

Additional Study Information: The purpose of this study is to learn more about the bones in children who are short. This study will help to see if the bones of short children who have low levels of growth hormone or children who are short but have normal levels of growth hormone are any different from children of average height. Bones have spongy inner parts and harder outer parts and we know that the thickness or thinness of these parts plays a role in how healthy and strong bones are. We also know that certain blood results show how fast or slow bones are growing. The results of this study may help identify what changes in the structure in bone are influenced by growth hormone, and see if blood results are related to these changes. This may help doctors find out if children who have low levels of growth hormone are at risk for having weaker bones.
