Anterior Pituitary Hormone Replacement in Traumatic Brain Injury

Principal Investigators: Randall Urban, MD, Brent Masel, MD.
Co-Investigators: Kurt Mossberg, Ph.D., PT, Dennis Zgaljardic, Ph.D.

Purpose of the Study: The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) replacement on neuropsychologic function in individuals with growth hormone deficiency following traumatic brain injury. The second purpose is to determine the effect of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) replacement on body composition in individuals with growth hormone deficiency following TBI. The third purpose is to determine the effect of recombinant human growth hormone replacement on aerobic capacity in individuals with growth hormone deficiency following TBI.
