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

Slide: 23 of 37

Summary of Benefits (1)

Potential benefits of rhGH treatment to patients with CF include a reduced hospitalization rate, at 1.6 fewer per year, a conclusion supported by moderate-strength evidence. Weight is associated with mortality risk, and modest gains in weight were observed with treatment (with moderate strength of evidence), but there is no direct evidence about how these gains may modify risk.
