Approval of Omnitrope, made by Sandoz, was announced Tuesday in a statement on the FDA’s Web site. Omnitrope, also known as somatropin, is a hormone used to treat growth disorders in children and adults.
This will be great for the children who need a little help if they have been tested first and show a deficiency. But... I hope it can be easily tested in baseball players. Lord knows there enough juice (steroids) in the players now!
It's a shame that the players have to take drugs and human growth hormones in order to beef up their stats. It gives our youth the wrong message that it's okay to cheat and subject your body to abuse in order to be popular and get all the contracts for sponsors.. ARGH!!
