Brief Summary:
A 26 week trial of TransCon hGH, a long-acting growth hormone product, administered once-a-week. Approximately 150 children (males and females) with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) will be included. All study participants will receive TransCon hGH. This is a global trial that will be conducted in, but not limited to, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
