MELBOURNE's the drug, it made by US experimental
pharmaceutical company Biomarin, has proved successful in animal models, and will be given as part of an international study.

If successful, the drug (MELBOURNE) would be given by a daily injection to children from the age of four until the end of puberty, when bones are almost finished growing.

Around five to eight, babies are born each year with achondroplasia, the most common form of dwarfism, every year.

"It's not just about making people taller, some children need a curvature of the spine straightened, others need surgery because there's a big hole where the brain becomes the spinal cord, or their spinal cord is squashed," Prof Savarirayan said.

"This medication could mean children won't have to have serious surgery, which is a great option for families."

"It's like someone's left the tap on in the garden and everything is flooded. Plants need water to grow, but if you overwater them they don't grow well and you need to turn the tap off."  said Prof Savarirayan

"But if this drug can prevent hip replacements, spinal stenosis, breathing complications and ear infections, which are all part of the package, it will be fantastic."
More than 80 per cent of babies with the short stature condition have parents of normal height, and develop it as the result of a spontaneous genetic mutation. The gene regulates bone growth, but the mutated version of the gene causes the growth signal to be over-stimulated.
National president of the Short Statured People of Australia, Meredith Tripp, said she was hesitant about the clinical trial.
