3. Rudman Study
The Rudman study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM; 323:1-6 1990). This pilot study divided 21 men 61-81 years old with plasma IGF-1 levels less than 350 iu per liter into two groups: 12 test subjects and 9 controls subjects. A six month base period of data collection preceded the six month test (GH injection) period. The study showed an increase in lean muscle mass, a decrease in adipose fat tissue, and an increase in vertebral bone height. All test subjects had measurable increases in their IGF-1 blood values. The control group showed none of the above benefits.

6. University of Illinois at Chicago
"HGH activates gene involved in healing damaged tissue." HGH is known to increase lean body mass and bone density in the elderly, but it does something else, too. It activates a gene critical for the body's tissues to heal and regenerate, says Robert Costa, professor of biochemistry and molecular genetics at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a member of the UIC Cancer Center.

"Papadakis and colleagues reported that a cohort of healthy, active men older than 70 years of age with low insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels had increased lean body mass and decreased fat mass after receiving HGH for 6 months. This finding confirmed our observations after 6 months and 12 months of human growth hormone treatment in a similar group of healthy older men.

"Discovery of Ghrelin, a novel growth hormone releasing peptide."  "Using this technique, we succeeded in the purification of an endogenous ligand for GHS-R from stomach and named it "ghrelin". Ghrelin has a unique structure, with an n-octanoyl modification at its third serine residue essential for its activities to stimulate GH secretion from pituitary cells. The existence of ghrelin in the stomach suggests a new mechanism regulating GH secretion."

"HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE (HGH)."  Jerry Emanuelson.  "At the age of 30, people have spent most of their lives with fairly high levels of human growth hormone (HGH). HGH is responsible for growth during childhood -- and for the repair and regeneration of human tissue throughout our lives. By the time we reach the age of 30, our HGH levels are only about 20 percent of their peak levels during childhood, and after the age of 30, they continue to decline at about 14 percent per decade."
