This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Ipsen Identifier:
First received: October 6, 2005
Last updated: November 16, 2009
Last verified: November 2009
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of lanreotide autogel to placebo after a single injection. Effectiveness and safety were then also assessed following four fixed-dose injections and after one year of treatment given at titrated doses.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: Lanreotide (Autogel formulation)
Phase 2
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase II, Multicentre, Randomized, Double-blind Study in Acromegalic Patients Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of a Single Deep Subcutaneous Administration of Lanreotide Autogel (60, 90 or 120mg) Versus Placebo Followed by a Single Blind Fixed Dose Phase Evaluating the Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacodynamic, Efficacy and Safety Profile of Multiple Deep Subcutaneous Administrations of Lanreotide Autogel (60, 90 & 120mg) Ending in Open Label Dose Titration Phase.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • documentation of a diagnosis of active acromegaly based on either of the following definitions:

    1. the patient has never received somatostatin analog nor dopaminergic agonist or had previously received this medication but had stopped more than 3 months before visit 1 and had a mean growth hormone (GH)level >5ng/mL at visit 1; or
    2. the patient was receiving treatment with a somatostatin analog (other than lanreotide autogel) or a dopaminergic agonist at visit 1, had a mean GH >3ng/mL at visit 2 (or visit 2a) and had at least a 100% increase in mean GH levels between visit 1 and visit 2 (or visit 2a)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • receipt of radiotherapy for acromegaly within 3 years
  • pituitary surgery within 3 months prior to visit 1
  • prior receipt of lanreotide autogel or GH antagonist
  • anticipated need for pituitary surgery (adenomectomy) or radiotherapy during the study period
  • known hypersensitivity to any of the test materials or related compounds
  • clinically significant renal or hepatic abnormalities
