The primary aim of the study was to evaluate d3-GHR as a possible cause of increased GH sensitivity in children with delayed infancy-childhood transition (DICT). The secondary aim was to investigate the impact of the GHR exon 3 deleted/full-length (d3/fl) polymorphism on GH treatment response in prepubertal children classified as having idiopathic short stature (ISS).
