Now that we have a big competition from different companies marketing recombinent growth hormone, I thought I will enlist all the available companies, the cost and any good or bad experience.
Novo Nordisk - norditropin- Rs 300/unit- Norway
Pfizer- genotropin- Rs 250/unit - USA
Eli Lily- humatropin- Rs 230/unit- USA
LG- eutropin- Rs 170/unit- India (Imp from korea)
Ferring- Zomocton - Rs 170/unit - India
Ranbaxy- Headon - Rs 156/unit - India (Imp from china)
Merck- serono/ saizen- Rs 200/unit - ??
I have used all of them. Ranbaxy supply was patchy but now I think it is better. The top three are pen devices and the rest are syringes.
LG says they are coming up with a depot GH, but when? I think some trials are going on.
