Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of responders in each of the two Pasireotide LAR (long acting release)regimens independently [ Time Frame: 7 months ]
    To assess the efficacy of two Pasireotide LAR (long acting release) regimens independently in patients with Cushing's disease after 7 months of treatment regardless of up titration at month 4. A responder is defined as a patient who attains Mean Urinary Free Cortisol (mUFC) ≤ 1.0 X Upper Limit of Normal (ULN) at month 7 regardless of dose-titration.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of responders in each of the Pasireotide LAR (long acting release) 10 mg and 30 mg doses independently in patients with Cushing's disease after 7 months of treatment who did not up titrate the doses of Pasireotide at month 4. [ Time Frame: 7 months ]
    A responder is defined as a patient who attains mUFC ≤1.0 X ULN and had not had a dose increase at Month 4.

  • Change in mean urinary free cortisol from baseline at every month in the core and every 3 months in extension within the two Pasireotide LAR regimens [ Time Frame: 26 months ]
  • Proportion of responders in the two Pasireotide LAR regimens at every month in the core and every 3 months in the extension phases [ Time Frame: 26 months ]
  • Proportion of responders in the two Pasireotide LAR regimens as measured by controlled and partially controlled mUFC(mean urinary free cortisol) combined responders at every month in the core and every 3 months in the extension [ Time Frame: 26 months ]
  • Controlled mUFC (mean urinary free cortisol)response of the two Pasireotide regimens by month 7 and 12 [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    To evaluate the frequency of controlled mUFC response of the two Pasireotide regimens by month 7 and 12.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Karnofsky performance status ≥ 60 (i.e. requires occasional assistance, but is able to care for most of their personal needs)
  • For patients on medical treatment for Cushing's disease the following washout periods must be completed before screening assessments are performed

    • Inhibitors of steroidogenesis (ketoconazole, metyrapone): 1 week
    • Pituitary directed agents: Dopamine agonists (bromocriptine, cabergoline) and PPARγ agonists (rosiglitazone or pioglitazone): 4 weeks
    • Octreotide LAR, Lanreotide SR and Lanreotide autogel: 14 weeks
    • Octreotide (immediate release formulation): 1 week

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who are considered candidates for surgical treatment at the time of study entry
  • Patients who have received pituitary irradiation within the last ten years prior to visit 1
  • Patients who have had any previous pasireotide treatment
  • Patients who have been treated with mitotane during the last 6 months prior to Visit 1
  • Diabetic patients on antihyperglycemic medications with poor glycemic control as evidenced by HbA1c >8%
  • Patients with risk factors for torsade de pointes, i.e. patients with a baseline QTcF >470 ms, hypokalemia, uncontrolled hypothyroidism, family history of long QT syndrome, or concomitant medications known to prolong QT interval
  • Female patients who are pregnant or lactating, or are of childbearing potential (defined as all women physiologically capable of becoming pregnant) and not practicing an effective method of contraception/birth control. Sexually active males must use a condom during intercourse while taking the drug and for 2 months after the last dose of study drug and should not father a child in this period. A condom is required to be used also by vasectomized men in order to prevent delivery of the drug via seminal fluid
