A Single Dose Study to Evaluate the PK-PD Response and Safety of PHA-794428 in Children With Growth Hormone Deficiency

This study has been terminated.
(See termination reason in detailed description.)

First received: April 13, 2006

Last verified: May 2011
This will be the first clinical study of the development of PHA-794428 in a pediatric population. Since differences in PK and/or PD response may occur between adult and pediatric subjects, it is deemed appropriate to first conduct an exploratory single dose study in pediatric patients to assess safety and tolerability in this patient population. In addition this will add pediatric data to facilitate the prediction of the optimal therapeutic dose to be tested in repeated dose phase 2b trials in children, using PK/PD modeling

Further study details as provided by Pfizer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • PK, IGF-1 and safety measurements up to 2 weeks after dosing

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Antibody and IGFBP-3 measurements

Estimated Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: April 2006
Study Completion Date: November 2007
Primary Completion Date: November 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
The study terminated on 10-Dec-2007. Pfizer's decision to terminate the program was due to cases of injection-site lipoatrophy that were reported in the clinical Phase 2 studies after a single injection of PHA 794428.
