Brief Summary:
During the first four weeks of the trial, participants will be randomly assigned to one of four groups: three groups will receive fixed doses of TransCon PTH and one group will receive placebo. TransCon PTH or placebo will be administered as a subcutaneous injection using a pre-filled injection pen. Neither trial participants nor their doctors will know who has been assigned to each group. After the four weeks, participants will continue in the trial as part of a long-term extension study. During the extension, all participants will receive TransCon PTH, with the dose adjusted to their individual needs. This is a global trial that will be conducted in, but not limited to, the United States, Canada, Germany, Denmark, and Norway.

    • ≥0.25 μg BID of calcitriol (active vitamin D) or ≥0.5 μg BID or ≥1.0 μg daily of alfacalcidol (active vitamin D), and
    • ≥400 mg BID calcium citrate or carbonate.
  4. Optimization of supplements prior to randomization to achieve the target levels of:

    • 25(OH) vitamin D levels of 30-70 ng/mL (75-175 pmol/mL) and
    • Magnesium level within the normal range and
    • Albumin-adjusted or ionized serum calcium (sCa) level in the lower half of the normal range.
  5. BMI 17-40 kg/m2 at Visit 1.
  6. If ≤25 years of age, radiological evidence of epiphyseal closure based on x-ray of non-dominant wrist and hand.
  7. eGFR >30 mL/min/1.73m2 during Screening.
  8. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) within normal laboratory limits within the 12 weeks prior to Visit 1; if on suppressive therapy for thyroid cancer, TSH level must be ≥0.2 μIU/mL.
