A Multicenter, Randomized, Blinded Study to Assess Safety and Efficacy of Pasireotide LAR vs. Octreotide LAR in Patients With Active Acromegaly
The patients will receive either Pasireotide LAR or Octreotide LAR for one year of treatment. The objective of this study is to compare the proportion of patients with a reduction of mean GH level to <2.5 µg/L and the normalization of IGF-1 to within normal limits (age and sex related) between the two treatment groups (pasireotide LAR and octreotide LAR) at 12 months. Following one year of treatment patients may proceed into the study extension. Patients who did not respond to the treatment they were randomized to (based on month 12 assessment results) will be switched to the other treatment arm at month 13.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
