What is R-Gene 10?

R-Gene 10 is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer. R-Gene 10 is given as a stimulant to the pituitary for the release of human growth hormone (HGH) in patients where a measure of pituitary reserve for HGH is needed. It can be used as a diagnostic aid in various conditions such as pituitary dwarfism, postsurgical craniopharyngioma, pituitary trauma, acromegaly, gigantism, and problems of growth and stature.

What doses of R-Gene 10 are available?

R-Gene 10 is available as arginine hydrochloride Injection. 100 mL of R-Gene 10 contains 10 g of L-arginine hydrochloride, equivalent to a 10% solution, 0.1 g/mL. L-arginine is a naturally occurring amino acid.

Extreme caution is advised when infusing R-Gene 10 into pediatric patients. There have been reports of overdosage of R-Gene 10 in pediatric patients resulting in death.

The test procedure for the intravenous infusion of R-Gene 10 is part of the test for the measurement of the pituitary reserve of HGH. The procedure is as follows:

  • The test should be carried out in the morning after a normal night’s sleep. Overnight fasting should continue through the test period
  • The patients must be on bed rest for at least 30 minutes before the procedure begins
  • R-Gene 10 should be administered through a needle or catheter in an antecubital vein or other suitable veins. Blood samples should be taken by venipuncture from the contra-lateral arm
  • Blood samples should be drawn at –30, 0, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes
  • Blood samples should be centrifuged and the plasma stored at –20°C until checked
  • The diagnostic test results showing deficiency of pituitary reserve for HGH should be checked with a second test with R-Gene 10, or with the insulin hypoglycemia test

Speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about the test procedure so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
