Official Title: A Prospective, International, Multi-centric, Open-label Study to Assess the Efficacy of an Extended Injection Interval Schedule of Lanreotide Autogel 120 mg in Acromegalic Subjects Who Are Biochemically Controlled on the Long Term Treatment With Octreotide LAR 10 or 20 mg

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of subjects having maintained their injection interval schedule of six weeks or increased their injection interval to eight weeks whilst keeping their normalised insulin growth factor (IGF 1) levels (age and sex adjusted) [ Time Frame: At study end at Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of subjects with normalised IGF 1 levels (age and sex adjusted) [ Time Frame: At Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of subjects having maintained an injection interval of six weeks or increasing their injection interval to eight weeks [ Time Frame: During Phase 2 of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean change from baseline in IGF 1 values (expressed as % of upper limit of normal (ULN)) overall and by injection interval [ Time Frame: At Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maintain normalised IGF 1 values [ Time Frame: At Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Symptoms of acromegaly (headache, excessive perspiration, fatigue, soft tissue swelling and arthralgia) [ Time Frame: At baseline, Weeks 24 and 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean changes from baseline in Quality of Life scores (AcroQoL* and SF 36) [ Time Frame: At Week 24 and Week 48 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The subject has given written informed consent prior to any study-related procedures
  • The subject is male or female and is over 18 years of age
  • The subject must have had documentation supporting the diagnosis of acromegaly
  • The subject has been receiving octreotide LAR (10 or 20 mg) treatment for at least six months and is biochemically controlled. Control is defined as normal (age and sex adjusted) IGF 1 levels for two consecutive measurements (at least two months apart) preceding study entry
  • If the subject is receiving dopamine agonist therapy, treatment should be stable for at least four months, and no change in their dopamine-agonist medication is expected during the entire study period

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The subject has received radiation therapy to the pituitary gland before study entry
  • The subject has a history of hypersensitivity to lanreotide or drugs with a similar chemical structure
  • The subject has received a growth hormone receptor antagonist (pegvisomant) therapy within three months before study entry
  • The subject has undergone treatment with any other investigational drug in the 30 days before study entry or is scheduled to receive an investigational drug, other than lanreotide 120 mg, during the course of the study
  • The subject has received any unlicensed drug within the 30 days prior to the baseline visit or is scheduled to receive an unlicensed drug during the course of the study
