May 28, 2007

I need to meet with my Dr. soon to discuss options about lipodystrophy. Quesion: Is Serostim FDA appoved for Lipodystrophy?

Response from Dr. Pierone

Hello and thanks for posting.

At this time Serostim is not FDA approved for abdominal lipohypertrophy. However it has been studied and appears to be effective in the treatment of this complication. Depending on review of the research data by the FDA, Serostim may eventually be approved for this indication.
