"This book is designed as a summary of the basic and clinical aspects of the regulation of GH axis as well as the effects of GH in catabolic conditions and GH deficiency. . .Particularly good are the basic chapters on the design of GH secretagogues, structure and function of GH receptor, and the CNS effects of GH. The chapter on interrelations between GH secretion and sleep is superb in that it is a brief but comprehensive treatment of the topic. . . This is a good summary of some novel aspects of basic GH research."-Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal

"A concise, well written, amply illustrated and referenced text." -Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology & Metabolism

"Human Growth Hormones: Research and Clinical Practice fulfills every expectation of excellence, largely as a result of the outstanding caliber of the contributors....the volume blends the basic-science elements of secretagogue discovery with the investigative clinical applications of GHRHs and GHRPs in the thorough and thoughtful manner....Central nervous system (CNS) actions of GHRH and GHRP agonists are presented in two outstanding chapters, followed b a brief but comprehensible biomathematical model of agonist-receptor-driven GH secretion as modulated by somatostatin restraint. The overview of pediatric neuroendocrinology by Bercu et al. is comprehensive and articulate....The illustrations throughout the text are plentiful and superb....As a clinical neuroendocrinologist working in the arena of GH pathophysiology, and teaching at the basic fellowship level, I regard this as one of the bright stars among scholarly updates for clinicians, research fellows and senior scientists"-Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism
