PDF | Abstract The measurement of circulating concentrations of growth hormone (GH) is an indispensable tool in the diagnosis of both GH deficiency. This makes it impossible for clinical practitioners to use research findings to make evidence-based clinical decisions.

A result of non-standardized hormone assays is that criteria used to diagnose patients differ depending on which test is being used, leading to inconsistent patient care.

Guiding Medicine for Millions of People. Point-of-care testing (POCT) is defined as laboratory assays performed near the patient. The development of new POCT assays has been increasing at a rapid rate.

POCT testing can include home test kits and handheld monitors. An assay is a technique either biological or chemicd which is used to: (1) determine if an unknown substance has hormonal character- istics, and aP what type hormonal substance it is; (2) the relative potency of this hormonal substance, i.e., 8, quantitative assay.

Biological assays are based on known effects which these hormones. Various assay technologies have been developed for gene expression analysis (Fig 1).For example, qRT-PCR amplifies a gene of interest and uses fluorescent probes or dyes to depict the gene expression; NanoString nCounter uses probe pairs to anneal to a region of RNA and detect genes; DNA microarrays allow cDNA targets to hybridize to probes on a solid slide and can Cited by: 8.

Short stature has been defined as a height below the 2 standard deviation for age, sex and ethnicity. Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) represents a condition characterized by reduced GH secretion, isolated or associated with other pituitary hormone deficiencies.
