There has been no study of human growth hormone (hGH) in Peyronie’s disease. I am unaware of the ability of hGH to dissolve collagen or scar. In all of the medical conferences that I have attended in the past decade that have included Peyronie’s disease research presentations, I have never seen any paper presented on this agent. If you are aware of any centers involved in such research please alert us.
