News About HGH, The Human Growth Hormone


Man charged with selling illegal forms of growth hormone.

Paul Gustafson,  Star Tribune

A St. Paul man alleged to have sold an illegally obtained human growth hormone and a homemade version of it to body builders was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Iowa.

Basil Han, 29, is accused of buying the human growth hormone hGH from two Iowa men who obtained it illegally from China, according to court documents.
When the Iowa men lost their Chinese sources of hGH, one told authorities, they created their own version, placed it in false packaging and sold much of it to Han for resale.

When Han was arrested March 18 in Iowa, he was in the process of buying the men's counterfeit hGH business and moving supplies and equipment for making the hormone to St. Paul, authorities allege.

By then, however, one of the Iowa men already was cooperating with federal authorities. As a result, federal agents tape-recorded Han on March 14 as he agreed to buy the men's business for $15,000. Later that day, the agents watched Han as he allegedly moved equipment for the illegal drug business into an apartment in the 1100 block of Ashland Av. in St. Paul, according to a search warrant filed Friday. Han was indicted on one count of possessing human growth hormone with intent to distribute it for unauthorized purposes and on one count of conspiracy.

His scheduled hearing Friday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was postponed. His attorney, John Lane, of Cedar Rapids, could not be reached for comment.

A man identified as B.J. Stevens told federal authorities that he and Nick Hanson of Mason City, Iowa, schemed to import hGH illegally from China beginning in 2000, according to court documents.

They did so by using Web sites to pose as representatives of legitimate biotechnology companies that needed hGH for neuromuscular research.
The hGH then was fraudulently repackaged as an approved human growth hormone product called Serostim and sold to body builders and others, the indictment alleges.

The Federal Drug Administration has not approved any foreign-manufactured hGH for use in the United States. But Serostim, a recombinant hGH product produced by Serono Inc., of Massachusetts, has been approved to prevent AIDS wasting.
However, the drug, which helps develop muscle mass, has become widely available on the black market because, unlike other steroids, it isn't detected in drug testing used by sports groups.

A Serono spokeswoman declined to comment on the scope of the drug's misuse, but she said there have been similar cases.

When the Iowa men lost their Chinese sources of hGH in September 2001, they began making their own counterfeit version from ingredients bought over the Internet, Stevens told authorities.

They also sold a substance called Somaject, which they made themselves, by making it appear to be a human growth hormone product made by a legitimate German firm, according to the indictment against Han.

Han allegedly bought 2,500 kits of hGH from the Iowa men between May 2001 and December 2003, then sold it to others. Much of it was the counterfeit substance the Iowa men made themselves, Stevens told authorities.

Human Growth Hormone or Somatropin injections should only be used under close medical supervision and for its prescribed medical purpose. To buy HGH legally and safely, you must have a valid prescription from your doctor. The article above highlights the risks of purchasing growth hormone without a prescription or from untrusted sources that sell hormone injections and steroids online especially from overseas countries where the quality of the HGH you are buying cannot be verified. The FDA does an excellent job of providing product safety guidelines and information and has done much to protect consumers from buying and using fake or illicit somatropin injectables that could potentially harm patients. Always confer with a licensed medical professional before taking hormone drugs. Get a blood test and physical examination to see if you are a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy using HGH. Enroll in an experienced, licensed physician's HRT or HGH program so your treatment results can be properly monitored and dosages accurately prescribed.

The FDA seeks to protect patients by issuing alerts. Below is an excerpt which helps to demonstrate how the FDA is actively helping bring to light the risks associated with buying and using HGH injections imported from other countries like China, Mexico and other online anablic steroid websites.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is the active ingredient in a number of human prescription drugs approved for marketing in the U.S. under new drug applications (NDAs). FDA-approved HGH can be legally prescribed for a limited number of conditions including:

  • hormonal deficiency that causes short stature in children;
  • long-term treatment of growth failure due to lack of exogenous GH secretion;
  • long-term treatment of short stature associated with Turner syndrome;
  • adult short bowel syndrome (SBS);
  • adult deficiency due to rare pituitary tumors or their treatment; and
  • muscle-wasting disease associated with HIV/AIDS.
HGH has important benefits, but also serious, known risks. Among the possible long-term side effects of HGH is an increased risk of cancer, and other dangerous side effects have been reported, including nerve pain and elevated cholesterol and glucose levels. For this reason, HGH is carefully regulated in the U.S.

The cost of approved HGH products is high, averaging several hundred dollars per dose. Because of this high cost, HGH drugs have been counterfeited and unapproved HGH products are offered for sale to U.S. consumers. For example, we have encountered HGH products imported as a lyophilized powder and declared as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) for pharmacy compounding. Some pharmacies promote compounded HGH for anti-aging purposes. It is sold as a "fountain of youth" in longevity clinics and to build body mass, weight loss, increase libido, and gain stamina. None of these indications are in the labeling of the FDA approved products.
