Endocrinology
Specialized therapies in targeted indications
We are committed to making a real difference in the lives of patients with selected endocrine and metabolic disorders. We do this through our unique offering of specialized therapies in targeted indications along with innovative drug delivery devices designed to maximize their full potential.
We are applying our expertise to treat growth hormone deficiency in children and adults, as well as other related metabolic disorders. In the United States, our growth hormone is helping patients with HIV-associated wasting and short bowel syndrome; also in the US, we offer EGRIFTA™ (tesamorelin for injection) as the first and only treatment indicated to reduce excess abdominal fat in HIV-infected patients with lipodystrophy (abdominal lipohypertrophy).
 

We have demonstrated our commitment to a rare metabolic disorder with a breakthrough therapy that allows those afflicted to lead a more normal life. In all of these areas, we are guided by our commitment to making a difference in the lives of patients and the people who care for them.

DISCLAIMER

Publication of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
There are two different, unaffiliated companies that use the name MERCK. Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which operates this website, uses the firm name “Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany,” in the United States and Canada, and also uses “EMD Serono” in biopharma, “MilliporeSigma” in life science and “EMD Performance Materials” in materials business. The other company, Merck & Co., Inc. holds the rights in the trademark MERCK in the United States and Canada. Merck & Co. is not affiliated with or related to Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which owns the MERCK trademark in all other countries of the world.   To reflect such fact and to avoid any confusion, certain logos, terms and business descriptions of the publications on this website have been substituted or modified, such as by referring to “Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany” instead of “Merck” standing alone.  Publications on this webpage, therefore, slightly deviate from the otherwise identical versions accessible outside the United States and Canada.
