The objective of this rollover study is to evaluate the long term (1 year) safety of a new weekly administered growth hormone preparation in adults with growth hormone deficiency who were treated with the same experimental preparation in study BPLG-005. In addition, further change in efficacy endpoints of BPLG-005 by prolonged treatment will be evaluated. Additional efficacy and safety data of the experimental preparation will be obtained from the switch-over patients.
