Experts in the field of endocrinology as well as ophthalmologists, oncologists, orthopedists and oral surgeons discuss the nature and mechanism of action of growth-stimulating substances whose biological and clinical activities in humans have been demonstrated or are being investigated. The monograph represents a good sampler of current basic and applied knowledge in the field
