Brief Summary:

This trial is conducted globally. The aim of the trial is to investigate efficacy and safety of once-weekly NNC0195-0092 (somapacitan) treatment compared to daily growth hormone treatment (Norditropin® FlexPro®) in growth hormone treatment naïve pre-pubertal children with growth hormone deficiency.

The trial consists of a 26 week main trial period, followed by a 26 week extension trial period, a 104 week safety extension period, a 208 week longterm safety extension trial period and a 30 day follow up period. Participants receive NNC0195-0092 (somapacitan) (0.04 mg/kg/week) during the main trial and the extension period and thereafter NNC0195-0092 (somapacitan) (0.16 mg/kg/week) during the safety extension and the long-term safety extension periods.

  • growth with standing measurements: Chromosomal aneuploidy and significant gene mutations causing medical "syndromes" with short stature, including but not limited to Turner syndrome, Laron syndrome, Noonan syndrome, or absence of GH receptors. Congenital abnormalities (causing skeletal abnormalities), including but not limited to Russell-Silver Syndrome, skeletal dysplasias. Significant spinal abnormalities including but not limited to scoliosis, kyphosis and spina bifida variants
  • Children born small for gestational age (SGA - birth weight and/or birth length below-2 SD for gestational age)
