<p>Between 1959 and 1985, the hormone was used to treat around 1,800 people in the UK</p>

Five patients are believed to have developed Alzheimer’s after receiving now-banned growth hormone treatment that was given to nearly 2,000 children decades ago, in the first evidence of human transmission of the disease.

A new study found a handful of people who received the hormones – which were banned in 1985 – had gone on to develop early onset Alzheimer’s and stroke symptoms.

The practice of injecting children with growth hormone extracted from the brains of deceased people was abandoned long ago – with good reason.

Around 200 children who underwent this procedure during 1959–1985 to treat short stature developed Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease decades later – a deadly, degenerative brain condition caused by a misfolded protein known as a prion.
