  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to look at the relationship between growth hormones, and recovery from a TBI - traumatic brain injury. It is believed that a TBI may interfere with the body's ability to produce growth hormones. These hormones may be needed by the body for growth, mental development and sexual maturation.
