Dose Ranging Study of Recombinant Human Insulin-like Growth Factor I in Children With Hyperinsulinism
I. Determine the dose of recombinant human insulin-like growth factor I that minimizes or decreases the need for exogenous glucose support without causing hypoglycemia.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Study Start Date:||August 1995|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||January 1999|
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients receive an escalating dose of recombinant human insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I). IGF-I is given subcutaneously twice a day. The dose of IGF-I is increased each day for 4 days. Glucose is administered intravenously, when necessary, to prevent hypoglycemia.
Following the study treatment patients resume prior medication and may undergo surgery.
