3.Secondary Outcome
Title Cmax of hGH
Hide Description

As part of the following endpoint:

Pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of serum human Growth Hormone (hGH) from ACP-001 treated dose groups compared to the PK profile of hGH from the daily Omnitrope treated group.

Cmax (maximum value of concentration) values at Week 4

Time Frame Days 22 to 29
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic analysis was performed on all patients who had at least one measurement of the primary variable and who had attended the Day 28 study visit. Two patients in Cohort 2 (ACP-001, 0.04 mg hGH/kg/wk) were withdrawn from the study before Day 28 and were therefore excluded from the analysis.
