Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in trunk FM, expressed in kilograms measured with DXA, from baseline to week 26 [ Time Frame: 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety measures [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    AEs, abnormal laboratory results (including glucose metabolism), immunogenicity, ECG.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in total FM, expressed in kilograms, measured with DXA, from baseline to 26 and 52 weeks [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in lean body mass, expressed in kilograms measured with DXA, from baseline to 26 and 52 weeks [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in trunk FM, expressed in kilograms measured with DXA, from baseline to 52 weeks [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in trunk FM, expressed as % change from baseline, measured with DXA, from baseline to 26 and 52 weeks [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   23 Years to 70 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Men and women between the age of 23 to 70 years old at screening, inclusive
  • GHD subjects as defined in the Consensus guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of adults with GH deficiency II (2007).
  • No r-hGH replacement therapy or use of GH secretagogues for at least 9 months with any registered or investigational r-hGH or GH secretagogue product.
  • The IGF-I level at screening ≤-1 SDS of the age and sex normal ranges according to the central laboratory measurements
  • Subjects who are on a stable diet and exercise regime and do not have plans to modify their diet or exercise for at least 12 months
  • Subject had a DXA screening and the results are interpretable according to the study plan.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding (at least 6 months delay from childbirth or lactation)
  • Evidence of growth benign intracranial tumor within the last 12 months (determined by comparing a previous MRI to a new one obtained no more than 6 months prior to study entry to clarify dynamics of growth).
  • History of any cancer. Exceptions to this exclusion criterion include resected in situ carcinoma of the cervix and squamous cell or basal cell carcinoma of the skin with complete local excision. Patients with GHD attributed to treatment of intracranial malignant lesions in childhood or adulthood (or, tumors) or leukemia may also be enrolled into the study provided that a recurrence-free survival period of at least 5 years is well documented in the study record.
  • Signs of intracranial hypertension at screening
  • Heart insufficiency, NYHA class > 2 (Appendix B)
  • History of overt diabetes mellitus (including currently treated, well-controlled DM) defined according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Criteriaa. A history of gestational diabetes, resolved after childbirth, is not exclusionary.
  • History of Acromegaly
