Humatrope (somatropin, rDNA origin, for injection) is a polypeptide hormone
of recombinant DNA origin. Humatrope is synthesized in a strain of Escherichia
coli that has been modified by the addition of the gene for human GH. The peptide
is comprised of 191 amino acid residues and has a molecular weight of about
22,125 daltons. The amino acid sequence of the peptide is identical to that
of human GH of pituitary origin.
Humatrope is a sterile, white, lyophilized powder intended for subcutaneous
or intramuscular administration after reconstitution to its liquid form. Humatrope
is a highly purified preparation. Phosphoric acid and/or sodium hydroxide may
have been added to adjust the pH. Reconstituted solutions have a pH of approximately
7.5. This product is oxygen sensitive.
Vial — Each vial of Humatrope contains 5 mg somatropin (15 IU or 225
nanomoles); 25 mg mannitol; 5 mg glycine; and 1.13 mg dibasic sodium phosphate.
Each vial is supplied in a combination package with an accompanying 5-mL vial
of diluting solution (diluent). The diluent contains Water for Injection with
0.3% metacresol as a preservative and 1.7% glycerin.
Cartridge — Cartridges of Humatrope contain either 6 mg (18 IU), 12
mg (36 IU), or 24 mg (72 IU) of somatropin. Each Humatrope cartridge contains
the following:
