Efficacy and Safety Study of Varying Doses of Lanreotide Autogel in Patients With Acromegaly
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of lanreotide autogel to placebo after a single injection. Effectiveness and safety were then also assessed following four fixed-dose injections and after one year of treatment given at titrated doses.
Phase II, Multicentre, Randomized, Double-blind Study in Acromegalic Patients Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of a Single Deep Subcutaneous Administration of Lanreotide Autogel (60, 90 or 120mg) Versus Placebo Followed by a Single Blind Fixed Dose Phase Evaluating the Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacodynamic, Efficacy and Safety Profile of Multiple Deep Subcutaneous Administrations of Lanreotide Autogel (60, 90 & 120mg) Ending in Open Label Dose Titration Phase.
