Reporting Groups
  Description
AcroGHD Randomized to Growth Hormone Subjects with a history of acromegaly who are now growth hormone deficient, randomized to growth hormone. This is an interventional arm.
AcroGHD Randomized to Placebo Subjects with a history of acromegaly who are now growth hormone deficient, randomized to placebo. This is an interventional arm.
AcroGHS Subjects with a history of acromegaly who now have normal growth hormone levels. This is not an interventional arm.
Active Acromegaly Subjects with active acromegaly. This is not an interventional arm.
