Effectiveness of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone (rhGH) in the Treatment of Patients with Cystic Fibrosis

Slide: 22 of 37

Intermediate End Points and Health Outcomes in rhGH-Treated Patients With CF (4)

This slide summarizes key findings from the systematic review about the correlation of pulmonary function and anthropometrics with  mortality and HRQoL.

Other pulmonary function measures were linked to mortality and HRQoL in about half of the univariate and multivariate analyses performed and do not exhibit the predictive strength of percent predicted FEV1.

Among anthropometrics, only weight showed a consistent predictive relationship with mortality risk. However, the connection between weight with HRQoL is not clear.
