Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition acromegaly
Treatments saline, dg3173, octreotide
Phase phase 2
Sponsor Aspireo Pharmaceuticals Limited
Start date January 2014
End date September 2015
Trial size 20 participants
Trial identifier NCT02217800, DG3173-II-02

Summary

This study is designed to assess the effect of the different continuous s.c. infusion treatments on the human growth hormone (hGH) levels in untreated acromegalic patients in comparison to a standard dose of octreotide. In addition, the pharmacokinetic profile and the safety and tolerability of DG3173 after continuous s.c. infusion will be evaluated.

(Other)
Interventions: saline, DG3173 and octreotide. Eligible patients are to receive a constant 23 hour subcutaneous infusion of saline as placebo comparator and will be randomized in an equal ratio to one of three treatment sequences of doses of 920, 2760 and 5520 µg DG3173 by constant 23 hour subcutaneous infusions in a random sequence followed by three subcutaneous injections of 300 µg octreotide at approximately 8 hour intervals as an active comparator.
saline
Eligible patients are to receive a constant 23 hour subcutaneous infusion of saline as placebo comparator and will be randomized in an equal ratio to one of three treatment sequences of doses of 920, 2760 and 5520 µg DG3173 by constant 23 hour subcutaneous infusions in a random sequence followed by three subcutaneous injections of 300 µg octreotide at approximately 8 hour intervals as an active comparator.

Primary Outcomes

Measure
The number of patients who achieve a trough hGH concentration of <2.5µg/L during the last 12 hours of the 23 hour profile following each study treatment.
time frame: 23 hours following each treatment
