What is Omnitrope?

Omnitrope is a laboratory-created human growth hormone designed to treat people living with certain growth-hormone-related disorders. Growth hormone is not only important to help children grow taller, but also supports other vital parts of the body, such as bones and muscles.

In children, Omnitrope works by increasing the amount of growth hormone, helping the child’s bones grow and muscles develop.

What does Omnitrope treat?

  • Growth hormone deficiency (GHD)
  • Turner syndrome
  • Prader-Willi syndrome
  • Idiopathic short stature
  • Small for gestational age
  • Adults with either adult onset or childhood onset GHD

Growth hormone

Growth hormone is a hormone produced in the pituitary gland at the base of the brain. When the pituitary gland doesn’t make enough human growth hormone—or doesn’t make any at all—the condition is called growth-related disorder.


Omnitrope contains an amino acid sequence that is identical to that of the human growth hormone of pituitary origin, which supports the growth and development of our bones and muscles.
