Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients with non-functioning pituitary adenomas (NFPA) who achieve tumor volume reduction of at least 20% after 24-week treatment with pasireotide LAR [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  2. Mean change of tumour volume assessed by pituitary MRI [ Time Frame: from baseline to week 4, 12 and 24 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. change in tumor volume [ Time Frame: 4, 12 and 24 weeks ]
  2. the effect of pasireotide LAR in hormonal response, and relevant disease-related symptoms [ Time Frame: at screening (it will be considered as baseline) and at Weeks 4, 12 and 24. ]
  3. Percent change of tumour volume assessed by pituitary MRI [ Time Frame: from baseline to week 4, 12 and 24 ]
  4. Proportion of patients achieving tumour volume reduction of at least ≥ 20% [ Time Frame: after 4, 12 and 24 weeks ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Non-functioning pituitary adenoma ≥ 1cm, patients without any previous treatment for the tumor
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0 or 1

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who require a surgical intervention for relief of any sign or symptom associated with tumor compression
  • Previous pituitary surgery
  • Previous medical treatment for pituitary tumor
  • Patients who have received pituitary irradiation within 10 years prior to randomization
  • Prolactin (PRL) levels > 100 ng/mL. PRL evaluation should be performed with diluted samples to make sure to avoid the "hook effect."
  • Patients presenting prolactinomas, acromegaly or Cushing's disease
