LG Life Sciences has indicated that access to an investigational treatment associated with this study is available outside the clinical trial.
Treatment with recombinant human growth hormone (somatropin) has been proven to be effective in stimulating height velocity and improving height in children with short stature due to insufficient endogenous Growth Hormone secretion. Currently somatropin is available in daily injection formulations. The requirement of daily administration causes significant burden and interruption of normal daily life. A product with less frequent dosing regimen will provide considerable improvement over currently available conventional replacement therapy regimens.
The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate the clinical comparability in terms of safety and efficacy of a new sustained release recombinant human growth hormone formulation to that of daily growth hormone.
