Protocol for Drug Use Investigation of Follistim Injection (Study P06132)(COMPLETED)

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00920634
First received: June 12, 2009
Last updated: February 4, 2015
Last verified: February 2015
  Purpose

The main purpose of this investigation is to collect information about safety and efficacy of Follistim Injection from actual clinical use to induce ovulation in patients with anovulation and oligoovulation due to hypothalamus-pituitary dysfunction.

Post-marketing surveys are not considered applicable clinical trials and thus the results of this survey will not be posted at its conclusion. The results will be submitted to public health officials as required by applicable national and international laws.


Condition Intervention
Anovulation Drug: Follitropin beta

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Protocol for Drug Use Investigation of Follistim Injection

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
1
Patients with anovulation and oligoovulation due to hypothalamus-pituitary dysfunction (amenorrhea first grade, anovulatory cycle, polycystic ovary syndrome, oligoamenorrhea) who underwent ovulation induction
Drug: Follitropin beta
For subcutaneous or intramuscular injection, the usual dosage is 50 IU of follitropin beta (recombinant) once daily for 7 days. The dosage should be adjusted subsequently while monitoring the development of follicles (dose increase by 25 IU every 7 days if the response of the ovaries is poor) and, after confirming presence of follicles of 18 mm or larger in mean diameter by the ultrasonic tomography, ovulation is induced by the administration of a human chorionic gonadotropin preparation.
