The 2nd IGFD Forum

  • Since the 1st IGFD Forum in Chantilly in November 2007, clinicians have gained experience in diagnosis of SPIGFD and treatment with Increlex. We will draw on this experience.

  • Advances in three particular areas related to SIGFD; prevalence in short stature patients, genetic diagnoses, and new therapeutic studies with Increlex.
