also be at increased risk of developing a number of long-term health consequences, including obesity, insulin resistance, carbohydrate intolerance, dyslipidemia, and psychosocial disadvantages. If untreated, SGA children account for nearly 15 percent of short adults.

In conjunction with this indication approval, and in support of the Novo Nordisk Triple Bottom Line; a commitment to economic success, environmental soundness, and social responsibility to employees and customers; the company will donate up to $15,000 to local charities in New Jersey, where the company has its U.S. headquarters.

"For 40 years, Novo Nordisk has helped to make children's lives better through an unwavering commitment to the field of endocrinology and growth-related disorders," said Eddie Williams, Vice President, Biopharmaceuticals, at Novo Nordisk. "In the past two years, Novo Nordisk has made Norditropin(R) available to a wider range of patients through the approval of three indications: treatment of children with short stature associated with Noonan syndrome, treatment of children with short stature associated with Turner syndrome, and now, the treatment of patients born SGA."

About SGA

Children born SGA are born shorter and/or weigh less than 97 percent of children of the same gestational age, regardless of whether or not they are born premature. SGA may be caused by fetal abnormalities, placental insufficiency, and maternal factors.

The natural growth hormone level of children born SGA varies from normal to deficient. Decreased growth is likely due to insensitivity to the body's own growth hormone and/or other growth factors. Growth hormone therapy is thought to overcome this insensitivity, enabling children to reach their full height potential.
