: hGH is a member of the somatotropin/prolactin family of hormones which play an important role in growth control and it is located at the growth hormone locus on chromosome 17 where they are interspersed in the same transcriptional orientation; an arrangement which is thought to have evolved by a series of gene duplications. hGH is synthesized by acidophilic or somatotropic cells of the anterior pituitary gland (1).The systemic inhibition of GH or IGF1, or both, may have therapeutic potential in preventing some forms of retinopathy (2).
