Growth Hormone Treatment in Infants Aged 1 to 2 Years With Chronic Renal Insufficiency (CRI) and Growth Retardation.
Open Randomized Trial Examining the Growth and Safety Effects of Treatment With Recombinant Growth Hormone on Infants Aged 1 to 2 Years With Growth Retardation Secondary to Chronic Renal Insufficiency

This trial is conducted in Europe. Objective(s): To evaluate the effect of human growth hormone on infants aged 1 to 2 years with chronic renal insufficiency (CRI) and growth retardation despite an adequate dietary intake.

Trial Design: This is an open, parallel group clinical trial with a duration of one year, in which period 50% of patients will receive GH treatment and the other 50% will act as a control group, without treatment.

Trial Population: The trial will involve a total of 16 infants aged from 12±3 to 24 months suffering chronic renal insufficiency (Glomerular Filtration Rate less than 60 ml/min/1.73 m2), and growth failure and undergoing conservative treatment or peritoneal dialysis. Include the key inclusion and exclusion criteria.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients will be infants of both sexes aged 12 ± 3 months with chronic renal insufficiency and growth retardation.
  • To be included in the trial, patients must meet all of the following inclusion criteria a.)-c.):
  • a.) Male or female infants with a chronological age of 12 ± 3 months
  • b.) Chronic renal insufficiency with Glomerular Filtration Rate less than 60 ml/min./1.73m2, according to the method used routinely in each participating center
