Lonapegsomatropin (TransCon hGH) is an investigational once-weekly prodrug of somatropin for the treatment of GHD. Previous trials in treatment-naïve (52-week heiGHt Trial) and treatment-experienced children (26-week fliGHt Trial) have reported the efficacy and safety of lonapegsomatropin. Subjects were eligible to enter the open-label extension enliGHten Trial, which continues to evaluate weekly lonapegsomatropin in pediatric GHD. In heiGHt, treatment-naïve subjects...

Measurement of 11-oxo-androgens, a novel biomarker, in females with clinical signs of premature adrenarche.

Blinov Beatriz , Saenger Paul , Akerman Meredith , Gabriel Liana

Introduction: Adrenarche is characterized by the activation of androgen precursors which are released from the zona reticularis of the adrenal gland. Dehydroepiandosterone (DHEA) is a weak androgen and its conversion to slightly more potent androgens such as Dehydroepiandosterone- sulfate (DHEA-S) is thought to be responsible for the clinical signs of adrenarche. Premature adrenarche is one of the most common endocrine abnormalities causing concern among perip...

Efficacy and Safety of Once-Weekly Somapacitan in Childhood Growth Hormone Deficiency: Results of a Randomised Open-Label, Controlled Phase 2 Trial

Savendal Lars , Rasmussen Michael , Horikawa Reiko , Khadilkar Vaman , Battelino Tadej , Saenger Paul

Background: Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) requires long-term daily injections with GH replacement therapy and is associated with considerable treatment burden by patients and caregivers. Somapacitan is a long-acting GH derivative that is being developed for once-weekly dosing in adults and children with GHD. A well-established protraction method, which is successfully in use to extend the half-life of insulin and glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1, has been applied in developing ...

Once-weekly somapacitan versus daily growth hormone in growth hormone deficiency: 3 year efficacy and safety results from REAL 3, a randomised controlled phase 2 trial

Savendahl Lars , Battelino Tadej , Rasmussen Michael Hojby , Saenger Paul , Horikawa Reiko ,

Growth hormone (GH) replacement therapy currently requires daily subcutaneous injections. Somapacitan is a long-acting GH-derivative in development for once-weekly use in children with GH deficiency (GHD). A phase 2, multinational, randomised, open-label, controlled trial (NCT02616562) investigated the efficacy and safety of somapacitan compared with daily GH (Norditropin®). GH-treatment-naïve prepubertal children with GHD received 0.04 (n = 16), 0.08 (n...

Efficacy, Observer-Reported Outcomes, and Safety of Once-Weekly Somapacitan in Children with Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD): 4-Year Results from the REAL 3 Trial

Sävendahl Lars , Battelino Tadej , Højby Rasmussen Michael , Brod Meryl , Wai Lee Kai , Saenger Paul , Horikawa Reiko

Children with GHD are currently treated with daily subcutaneous growth hormone (GH) injections, which can be burdensome. Somapacitan is a long-acting GH derivative in development for once-weekly use in children with GHD. REAL 3 (NCT02616562) is a phase 2, multinational, randomised, open label, controlled trial assessing efficacy and safety of somapacitan vs daily GH (Norditropin®). Prepubertal, GH-naïve children with GHD received 0.04 (n=16), 0.08 (n</e...

OOnce-weekly Somapacitan vs Daily Growth Hormone (Norditropin®) in Childhood Growth Hormone Deficiency: One-year Results from a Randomised Phase 2 Trial

Sävendahl Lars , Battelino Tadej , Horikawa Reiko , Juul Rasmus Vestergaard , Rasmussen Michael Højby , Saenger Paul

Daily injections are required for human growth hormone (GH) replacement therapy. Somapacitan is a long-acting GH derivative being developed for once-weekly dosing in adults and children using a proven protraction method, currently successfully in use to extend the half-life of insulin and glucagon-like peptide 1.To evaluate the efficacy and safety of three different once-weekly somapacitan doses compared with Norditropin®, a daily GH, ove...
