Acute Application of Pegvisomant and Octreotide in Acromegaly
The Effect of Acute Application of Pegvisomant Alone and in Combination With Octreotide on Endogenous GH Levels During a 6 Hour Test in Patients With Acromegaly on Constant Pegvisomant Treatment
The purpose of the study is to investigate the efficacy of an acute additional application of the somatostatin analogue octreotide 100µg s.c. or the dopamine agonist cabergoline 0.5mg p.o. to the receptor antagonist pegvisomant during a 6 or 9 hour profile on reducing endogenous growth hormone in patients with acromegaly on stable pegvisomant therapy.
