Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Expectant Mothers Experiencing Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 Year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An AE is any unfavorable and unintended change in the structure, function or chemistry of the body temporally associated with study drug administration whether or not considered related to the use of the study drug.

  • Number of Expectant Mothers Experiencing Serious AEs (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 Year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An AE or suspected adverse reaction is considered "serious" if, in the view of either the investigator or sponsor, it results in any of the following outcomes: death, a life-threatening adverse event, inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, a persistent or significant incapacity or substantial disruption of the ability to conduct normal life functions, or a congenital anomaly/birth defect. Important medical events that may not result in death, be life-threatening, or require hospitalization may be considered serious when, based upon appropriate medical judgment, they may jeopardize the participant and may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed in this definition.

  • Number of Infants Experiencing AEs [ Time Frame: Up to 1 Year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An AE is any unfavorable and unintended change in the structure, function or chemistry of the body temporally associated with study drug administration whether or not considered related to the use of the study drug.

  • Number of Infants Experiencing SAEs [ Time Frame: Up to 1 Year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    An AE or suspected adverse reaction is considered "serious" if, in the view of either the investigator or sponsor, it results in any of the following outcomes: death, a life-threatening adverse event, inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, a persistent or significant incapacity or substantial disruption of the ability to conduct normal life functions, or a congenital anomaly/birth defect. Important medical events that may not result in death, be life-threatening, or require hospitalization may be considered serious when, based upon appropriate medical judgment, they may jeopardize the participant and may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed in this definition.

  • Take-Home Baby Rate [ Time Frame: Birth of a one or more live babies (Up to 1 year) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The take-home baby rate was calculated as the number of participants with a least one live born infant in the follow-up study (P05783, 38834, NCT00702520) relative to the number of participants treated with Corifollitropin alpha in the base study (P05788, 38833, NCT00702351).

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Corifollitropin alpha 100 ug
In the base study (P05788, 38833, NCT00702351), participants were pre-treated with daily subcutaneous (SC) injections of 0.1 mg triptorelin started between Day 21 and 24 of the menstrual cycle (mid luteal phase). After suppression of endogenous luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) was confirmed by estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) measurements, a single dose of corifollitropin alpha 100 μg was administered in participants weighing <= 60 kg. From stimulation Day 8 onwards, treatment was continued with daily SC of recombinant follicle stimulating hormone (recFSH) injections (maximally 200 IU) up to and including the day of administration of human chorionic gonadotprophin (hCG). No study medications were administered in the present P05783 study (38834, NCT00702520).
Drug: Corifollitropin alpha (MK-8962, Org 36286) 100 ug
Subcutaneous administration of corifollitropin alpha at a dose of 100 ug
Drug: Triptorelin
Daily SC injections of 0.1 mg triptorelin started between Day 21 and 24 of the menstrual cycle (mid luteal phase).
Biological: Recombinant follicle stimulating hormone (recFSH)
From stimulation Day 8 onwards, treatment was continued with daily SC of recFSH injections (maximally 200 IU) up to and including the day of administration of hCG.
Biological: Human chorionic gonadotprophin (hCG).
HCG was administered as a single subcutaneous injection of 5,000 to 10,000 international units.
Corifollitropin alpha 150 ug
In the base study (P05788, 38833, NCT00702351), participants were pre-treated with daily SC injections of 0.1 mg triptorelin started between Day 21 and 24 of the menstrual cycle (mid luteal phase). After suppression of endogenous LH and FSH was confirmed by E2 and P measurements, a single dose of corifollitropin alpha 150 μg was administered in participants weighing >= 50 kg. From stimulation Day 8 onwards, treatment was continued with daily SC of recFSH injections (maximally 200 IU) up to and including the day of administration of hCG. No study medications were administered in the present P05783 study (38834, NCT00702520).
Drug: Corifollitropin alpha (MK-8962, Org 36286) 150 ug
Subcutaneous administration of corifollitropin alpha at a dose of 150 ug
Drug: Triptorelin
Daily SC injections of 0.1 mg triptorelin started between Day 21 and 24 of the menstrual cycle (mid luteal phase).
Biological: Recombinant follicle stimulating hormone (recFSH)
From stimulation Day 8 onwards, treatment was continued with daily SC of recFSH injections (maximally 200 IU) up to and including the day of administration of hCG.
Biological: Human chorionic gonadotprophin (hCG).
HCG was administered as a single subcutaneous injection of 5,000 to 10,000 international units.

Detailed Description:

This is a follow-up protocol to prospectively monitor pregnancy, delivery, and neonatal outcomes of all women who were treated with corifollitropin alfa and became pregnant during the base Trial 38833. For this follow-up trial (38834), no investigational products will be administered and no study specific assessments are required, but information will be obtained as per standard clinical practice.
