The global market for growth hormone deficiency (GHD) treatment will rise in value from $1.26 billion in 2014 to reach approximately $1.88 billion by 2024, representing a moderate Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.08%, according to research and consulting firm GlobalData.

The company's latest report states that the increase, which will occur across the seven major countries of the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan, will be primarily driven by the launch of long-acting growth hormone biobetters, which are expected to begin entering the market in 2017.

Dr Lakshmi Dharmarajan, GlobalData's senior analyst covering cardiovascular and metabolic disorders, says the less frequent dosing schedules of these drugs will be attractive to patients, offering improved compliance and adherence outcomes.

She comments: "According to Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs), patient compliance with daily growth hormone drugs has been a long-standing issue in the GHD treatment landscape, and it remains the greatest unmet need.

"As a consequence, pharmaceutical companies are focusing heavily on developing easier delivery options for patients, leading to therapies that can be administered weekly or bi-weekly. Indeed, nine of the 12 drugs currently in development for GHD are long-acting growth hormone biobetters."

Hello everyone out there i'm Valencia Grimsley,Do you know that there is a great Herbal doctor who can cure any deadly disease? Like Cancer, Hiv, syphilis, diabetes, herpes madness, low spam count And also bring back your Lover e.t.c. Well my main reason why i am writing this right now is to inform the whole world about the great deeds, Dr.Ebosa did for me. I was diagnosed of this deadly disease in the year 2007 ever since then i was taking my medications, until i met the great herbal doctor, though i never believed in herbal med. I saw many testimonies on how a great herbal doctor cured their deadly diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he asked me to send him my email, which i did. He gave me a form to fill, I filled it and send it back to him. He told me that he required some items in which he will use in preparing the herbal medicine for me. I don't know where to find the items he required. He told me that the only alternative is for me to send him the money, then he can help me to purchase the items from the items sellers. I promised myself to do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and he prepared the herbal medicine and send to me through courier service delivery and i make use of it as he instructed. few weeks later he asked me to go for check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative. If you are passing through hardship and you need a way out, kindly contact him via his email on ebosaherbalremedy@hotmail.com or http://ebosaherbalremedy.blogspot.com.
