Replacement therapy

replacement therapy

therapy designed to compensate for a lack or deficiency arising from inadequate nutrition, from certain dysfunctions (e.g., glandular hyposecretion), or from losses (e.g., haemorrhage); replacement may be physiological or may entail administration of a substitute (e.g., a synthetic oestrogen in place of estradiol).
