Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   35177   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5751   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

Temporary adjustment of glucocorticoid replacement therapy, as appropriate, is acceptable.
    4. Has a screening IGF-1 level of at least 1 SD (IGF-1 SD score <-1) below the mean IGF 1 level standardized for age and gender according to the central laboratory reference values.
    5. Has a BMI of ≥18.0 and ≤ 35.0 kg/m2 (both male and female subjects).
    6. Has a confirmed negative test result for anti-rhGH antibodies at screening.
    7. Must agree to use appropriate contraceptive methods (ie, condoms, cervical cap in conjunction with spermicide, sterilization, and intra uterine device) during the study and for 3 months after the last dose of study drug.
    8. Female subjects must have a negative serum pregnancy test result at screening.
    9. Must be willing and able to provide written informed consent before performing any study procedures.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    A subject meeting any of the following criteria will be excluded from the study:
    1. Has evidence of growth of pituitary adenoma or other intracranial tumor within the last 12 months which has to be confirmed by computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging scan (with contrast) within 3 months before screening. (Subjects with inactive remnant intracranial tumors are eligible).
    2. Is currently receiving antitumor therapy and has a history of malignancy other than i) cranial tumor or leukemia causing GHD, or ii) fully treated basal cell carcinoma or evidence of active malignancy.
    3. Has any clinically significant electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormality at screening.
    4. Has evidence of intracranial hypertension at screening.
    5. Has uncontrolled diabetes mellitus with diet and exercise, as determined based on glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels ≥7.0% at screening.
    6. Has impaired liver function defined as elevation of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) greater than 2.0 × upper limit of normal (ULN).
    7. Has impaired kidney function defined as increased serum creatinine levels greater than 1.5 × ULN.
    8. Has had active acromegaly within 18 months before screening.
    9. Has active carpal tunnel syndrome.
    10. Has Prader-Willi syndrome.
    11. Has had active Cushing syndrome within 12 months before screening.
    12. Has any other major medical conditions, including eg, clinically manifested hypertension, tuberculosis, major surgery within the 3 months before screening, or significantly abnormal laboratory test results (eg, disturbed calcium homeostasis); or any other conditions (eg, acute infections) that may influence drug absorption, metabolism, or excretion, or that may interfere with any study variables in the judgment of the investigator.
    13. Has been treated with systemic corticosteroids other than replacement therapy within 3 months before screening.
    14. Is a female subject of childbearing potential who is pregnant, breastfeeding, or intends to become pregnant.
    15. Has been treated with anabolic steroids other than gonadal steroid-replacement therapy within 2 months before screening. Oral estrogen replacement and hormonal contraceptives are not allowed in female subjects. For replacement purposes, transdermal estrogens are permitted in female subjects.
    16. Has a history of noncompliance with medications, uncooperativeness, or alcohol/drug abuse.
    17. Has a positive result from serology examination for hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
    18. Has a known or suspected hypersensitivity to rhGH.
    19. Has donated blood or had any major blood loss greater than 500 mL within 90 days before screening.
    20. Has a history of any medical or psychiatric condition that in the opinion of the investigator would pose a risk for participation in this study or interfere with the compliance needed for this study.
    21. Has received an investigational drug or product or has participated in a drug study within 60 days before screening.
