Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Participants were recruited at Massachusetts General Hospital between September 2010 and October 2012 through area pediatric and obesity clinics and advertisements.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Of the 32 subjects who were screened, 22 were eligible & randomized. 5 subjects were ineligible due to Insulin Like Growth Factor levels above the eligibility limit for pubertal stage or age. 2 were excluded due to planned initiation of medications that were on the exclusion criteria list and 3 voluntarily withdrew consent prior to randomization.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Recombinant Human Growth Hormone

Forty subjects will be randomized to receive either recombinant human growth hormone or placebo/no treatment.

recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) : Initial rhGH dose 0.4mg administered by subcutaneous injection daily. Dose will be increased to 0.6 mg after one week and then increased to 0.8mg after two weeks.

Placebo/no Treatment

Forty subjects will be randomized to receive either recombinant human growth hormone or placebo.

Placebo : Placebo will be administered by daily subcutaneous injections. Sham increases will be used. Due to expiration of placebo medication, placebo subjects who enrolled after 6/2012 were randomized to no treatment.
