Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Ht SDSca [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4,12,26 weeks after initiating treatment ]
    Ht SDSca was calculated by dividing the difference between the actual height of a patient and the mean height of the population for that chronological age by the standard deviation (SD) of the height of the population for that chronological age

  • People with severe cardiopulmonary, hematological and malignant tumors diseases or general infection and immune deficiency.
  • Diabetic.
  • Potential tumor patients (family history).
  • Abnormal growth and development, such as Turner syndrome, constitutional delay of growth and puberty,Laron syndrome, growth hormone receptor deficiency, girls of growth retardation without excluding abnormal chromosome.
  • Subjects took part in other clinical trial study within 3 months.
  • Other conditions which in the opinion of the investigator preclude enrollment into the study.
