Growth hormone studies
Aug 14, 2001

Do you know of any studies of lipidystrophy remedies, particularly of growth hormones, being done in Western Canada? Or any trials of new treatments that don't have this side effect?

Response from Dr. Bartlett

New treatments for lipodystrophy are actively being evaluated. One potential treatment is human growth hormone. I am not aware of clinical trials availability in western Canada, but I suggest that you call the office of Dr. Julio Montaner in Vancouver to get additional information. Good luck!
