Abstract

Data on the effects of rhGH treatment in children on peritoneal dialysis are limited. In general rhGH therapy seems to be less effective compared with results on patients with chronic renal failure on conservative treatment. Our experience suggests that rhGH can stimulate growth in children on CPD, and that the efficacy of such therapy is reduced after the first year of treatment, although the rhGH is still active.
