Controlled Trials of rhGH Treatment for CF Summarized in the CER

The CER evaluated studies of rhGH therapy, conducted among patients with CF, that reported data on prespecified clinical or humanistic outcomes and were reports of new discovery.

Randomized controlled trials and prospective cohort studies were pooled when trials evaluated both rhGH-treated and control groups.

This table summarizes the 10 trials of rhGH treatment of patients with CF that met inclusion criteria for quantitative analysis in the Effectiveness Review.
