ZOMACTON® (somatropin) is a synthetic human growth hormone (hGH) produced by recombinant DNA technology.
The main use for the product is to treat Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) in children.
How to use ZOMACTON
Somatropin is broken down by the digestive system and therefore cannot be taken by mouth. It needs to be administered through the skin as an injection.
Cases of Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) should ideally be treated on a nightly basis (at bedtime) with somatropin. The dose and exact schedule of administration is based on an individual assessment of each patient, but the treatment is over several years.
ZOMACTON can be administered using needle-free delivery systems, ZOMAJET® 2 VISION and ZOMAJET® VISION X.
