Safety of Somatropin and Induction of Puberty With 17-beta-oestradiol in Girls With Turner Syndrome
Dose Response Trial of Biosynthetic Authentic Human Growth Hormone and Induction of Puberty With 17b Oestradiol in Girls With Turner's Syndrome

This trial is conducted in Europe. The aim of this trial is to assess whether increasing doses of somatropin (Norditropin®) can maintain the initial increase in height velocity and improve final height. This trial has two trial periods, a main period of 4 years and an extension period until final height is reached.

Phase 4
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Genetic Disorder
  • Turner Syndrome
  • Drug: somatropin
    4 IU/m^2 body surface for 4 years (main period). In extension period subjects continue the reached dose until final height. Administered as once daily subcutaneous injection
  • Drug: somatropin
    Initial dose 4 IU/m^2 body surface the first year, then 6 IU/m^2 body surface for 3 years (main period). In extension period subjects continue the reached dose until final height. Administered as once daily subcutaneous injection
  • Drug: somatropin
    Initial dose 4 IU/m^2 body surface the first year, then 6 IU/m^2 body surface, the second year and finally 8 IU/m^2 body surface for 2 years (main period). In extension period subjects continue the reached dose until final height. Administered as once daily subcutaneous injection
  • Drug: oestrogen
    Treatment with oestrogen was administered if spontaneous puberty had not occurred by age 12 years and was initiated in the extension period after at least four years of somatropin treatment
  • Experimental: Low dose
    Interventions:
    • Drug: somatropin
    • Drug: oestrogen
  • Experimental: Medium dose
    Interventions:
    • Drug: somatropin
    • Drug: oestrogen
  • Experimental: High dose
    Interventions:
    • Drug: somatropin
    • Drug: oestrogen
