Newsflash Mr Cohen! recombinant human growth hormone didn't exist in the 
1950's. Obviously bovine sources were used. That's why the treated 
patients came down with CJ disease. (totally unrelated to the intrinsic 
GH molecule.)

Why should anyone call YOU to discuss a topic of which you obviously
know so little?
