Acromegaly and Serum Growth Hormone

Summary

Serum levels of HGH were measured in patients with acromegaly before (n = 10) and after (n = 7) radiotherapy or surgical intervention. Besides the confirmation of diagnosis, these measurements allowed the evaluation of the endocrine activity of the disease. Unsatisfactory responses to therapeutic procedures presently in use were recorded in the majority of the cases observed.
