|Central Precocious Puberty|
During clinical trials of Supprelin LA®, leuprolide stimulation tests were performed to determine adequacy of suppression. However, the use of this stimulation test to monitor suppression requires an expensive medication and collection of multiple blood samples. Alternative methods of monitoring pubertal suppression during gonadotropin releasing hormone receptor agonist (GnRHa) therapy have included both random and trough levels of Luteinizing Hormone (LH), estradiol or inhibin B. Recently, the free alpha subunit of pituitary glycoprotein (FASPG) has also been shown to be a potentially useful marker of hormonal suppression (Hirsch HJ, et al, JCEM 95:2841, 2010) as it undergoes a paradoxical rise following initiation of therapy, and reverts to baseline upon completion.
In this investigator-initiated pilot study we will evaluate novel markers of pubertal suppression in children receiving standard of care gonadotropin releasing hormone receptor agonist therapy for the treatment of central precocious puberty. Children with central precocious puberty who have selected treatment with Supprelin LA will undergo hormonal testing of markers of pubertal activity before and after placement of the Supprelin LA insert.

Children with Central Precocious Puberty
Children with Central Precocious Puberty will have hormonal testing of markers of puberty up to 30 days prior to placement of a Supprelin LA insert and 28-97 days after placement of the Supprelin LA insert.
- Sensitivity and specificity of free alpha subunit of pituitary glycoprotein to identify subjects with appropriate pubertal suppression. [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]The primary outcome of the study will be the sensitivity and specificity of a subject having elevated random FASPG values (> 0.6 ng/mL) to identify subjects who are appropriately suppressed based upon a leuprolide-stimulated LH <4 mIU/mL. This outcome will be based upon results of puberty hormone suppression testing obtained 28-97 days after placement of the Supprelin LA insert.
