Further study details as provided by Pfizer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of subjects experiencing treatment-emergent adverse events across the duration fo the study

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of patients with normalization of IGF-I, at Week 40, in the two randomized groups (Sandostatin LAR plus pegvisomant and pegvisomant alone). Normal IGF-I is defined as a value within the normal reference range for age for the study specific

Estimated Enrollment: 75
Study Start Date: October 2003
Study Completion Date: May 2006
