Now it's possible to inexpensively, safely, effectively and legally increase natural production of Human Growth Hormone, by using Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (GHRP) and Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRH).

Through the Registry, we will also be able to gather unique information on Geref, the only growth hormone releasing hormone on the market and the sole treatment alternative to human growth hormone for children with idiopathic growth hormone deficiency," she added.
By contrast, Geref is a synthetic growth hormone releasing hormone, which triggers the release of natural, endogenous growth hormone in the body.
Under this agreement, BTG will market Serono's recombinant human growth hormone, Saizen(R) (somatropin [r-DNA origin] for injection) for the treatment of children with growth failure due to inadequate levels of growth hormone; Geref(R) (sermorelin acetate for injection), the first approved growth hormone releasing hormone for the treatment of idiopathic growth hormone deficiency in children; and Geref(R) Diagnostic (sermorelin acetate for injection), a complementary product for the diagnosis of growth disorders.
Geref, a growth hormone releasing hormone, triggers the release of the body's available reserves of growth hormone.
VGX is currently developing a portfolio of DNA based vaccines covering HIV, HPV and influenza as well as DNA therapies for cancer and HIV related cachexia based on growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH).
