Biological marker associated with depression in children uncovered by University of Pittsburgh researchers

ilar decreased production of growth hormone when given GHRH as currently or recently depressed children. The never-depressed children at high risk to develop depression and the children who were already depressed both secreted significantly less growth hormone than the normal controls. Moreover, the depressed children continued to secrete less growth hormone after the stimulation with GHRH even after the depression improved. These findings suggest that the blunted GH after GHRH is a trait marker for depression in children.
