  Purpose

This study will investigate long-term, low-dose growth hormone administration in HIV-infected patients with reduced growth hormone (GH) secretion and increased visceral adiposity. We hypothesize that low-dose growth hormone will reduce visceral fat. Secondary endpoints will include measures of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), glucose homeostasis, lipids, blood pressure,bone density, cardiovascular risk and safety parameters.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Visceral Adipose Tissue Area From Baseline to 18 Months [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in visceral adipose tissue area as measured by single-slice abdominal computed tomographic scan


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Insulin-like Growth Factor-I From Baseline to 18 Months [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Change in insulin-like growth factor-1

  • Change in Trunk Fat [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in Fasting Glucose [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    change in fasting glucose

  • Change in Trunk to Extremity Ratio [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in trunk to extremity ratio

  • Change in Triglycerides [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in triglycerides

  • Change in Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in subcutaneous adipose tissue

  • Change in CD4 Cells [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Change in CD4 cells

  • Change in Logarithm HIV Viral Load [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Change in logarithm base 10 HIV viral load

  • Change in Lean Body Mass [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in lean body mass

  • Change in Quality of Life Score From the Medical Outcomes Study-HIV Survey From Baseline to 18 Months [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in quality of life score was measured by the Medical Outcomes Study-HIV (MOS-HIV)survey. The MOS-HIV asks patients to report on health-related quality of life and physical function from the past 4 days. The scoring range is 0-100, and a higher score indicates better quality of life.

  • Change in Diastolic Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in diastolic blood pressure

  • Change in Adiponectin [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in adiponectin

  • Change in Carotid Intima Media Thickness (IMT) [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in carotid intima media thickness (IMT)

  • Change in Body Mass Index [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in body mass index

  • Change in Extremity Fat [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in extremity fat

  • Change in 2-hour Glucose [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in 2-hour glucose

  • Change in Systolic Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in systolic blood pressure

Detailed Description:

This study will investigate long-term, low-dose growth hormone administration in HIV-infected patients with reduced growth hormone (GH) secretion and increased visceral adiposity. We hypothesize that low-dose growth hormone will reduce visceral fat preferentially over subcutaneous fat, and increase lean body mass. Secondary endpoints will include measures of IGF-1, glucose homeostasis, lipids, blood pressure,bone density, cardiovascular risk and safety parameters. Dosing of growth hormone will be based on patients' IGF-1 levels and will not exceed 6mcg/kg/day.
