Further study details as provided by Ipsen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • GH (basal and during Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)) and IGF-1 levels, in acromegalic patients previously treated with octreotide long acting release (LAR) 20 mg. [ Time Frame: Weeks 16, 18 & 20 ]
  • Acromegaly symptoms. [ Time Frame: Weeks 16, 18 & 20 ]
  • Indices of insulin secretion & sensitivity [ Time Frame: Weeks 16, 18 & 20 ]
  • Adverse events [ Time Frame: Throughout study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients with GH levels ≤ 2.5 ng/mL and the number of patients with IGF-1 level < upper limit of normal (ULN). [ Time Frame: Weeks 16, 18 & 20. ]
  • Serum lanreotide Autogel 120 mg concentrations. [ Time Frame: Weeks 16, 18 & 20. ]
  • ECG and gallbladder ultrasound [ Time Frame: Week 20 ]
