Post-hoc subgroup analysis of the pivotal phase 3 study of once-weekly somatrogon vs once-daily Genotropin: results from subjects with peak stimulated growth hormone value <6.7 ng/ml

Phillip Moshe , Deal Cheri , Silverman Lawrence , Henocque Robin , Nijher Monica , Wajnrajch Michael , Wang Ronnie , Cara Jose

Objectives: Somatrogon is a long-acting recombinant human growth hormone (GH) approved by the EMA as a once weekly treatment for children with GH deficiency (GHD). The peak stimulated GH cut-off value for diagnostic criteria for GHD varies according to country-specific guidelines. The objective of this subgroup analysis of the pivotal phase 3 somatrogon study was to evaluate the primary and secondary efficacy endpoints for subjects with a peak GH value <6.7...

Efficacy and safety of once-weekly somatrogon in pediatric subjects with growth hormone deficiency: lack of impact of anti-drug antibodies

Deal Cheri , Silverman Lawrence , Korth-Bradley Joan , Roland Carl , Taylor Carrie , Cara Jose , Wajnrajch Michael

Objectives: Somatrogon, a long-acting recombinant human growth hormone (GH) consisting of the amino acid sequence of human GH (hGH) and three copies of the carboxy-terminal peptide (CTP) of human chorionic gonadotropin, is approved by the EMA for treatment of children with GH deficiency (GHD). In this phase 3 study, children with GHD received either somatrogon or Genotropin. The impact of testing positive for anti-drug antibodies to somatrogon (ADA+) on the ef...

Objectives: Somatrogon is a long-acting recombinant human growth hormone (GH) approved by the EMA as a once weekly treatment for children with pediatric GH deficiency (GHD). A global phase 3 study compared the efficacy and safety of once-weekly somatrogon with once-daily Genotropin in pediatric subjects with GHD. The objective of this subgroup analysis was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of once-weekly somatrogon vs once-daily Genotropin in the subset of A...

A real-world study of persistence with daily growth hormone therapy among children with growth hormone deficiency in Japan

Loftus Jane , Wogen Jenifer , Benjumea Darrin , Jhingran Priti , Chen Yong , Alvir Jose , Wajnrajch Michael

Background: Paediatric growth hormone deficiency (PGHD) is treated with daily somatropin (recombinant human growth hormone) injections. High rates of discontinuation and poor adherence to treatment, which are associated with worse growth outcomes, have been documented previously, for example in the US and EU. Discontinuation of somatropin has not yet been evaluated using real-world data in Japan.Objectives: To describe d...

Objective: KIMS (Pfizer International Metabolic Survey) was a postmarketing surveillance study of growth hormone (GH) replacement in adults and adolescents with GH deficiency (GHD) that concluded in October 2012. This analysis aimed to evaluate the overall safety outcomes from the full cohort of GH-treated patients of KIMS.Methods: Data were collected on adults and adolescents with confirmed GHD and closed epiphyses trea...

Background: Use of recombinant human growth hormone (somatropin) is recommended for children with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) to normalize adult height and avoid extreme short stature. Prior research conducted among small study samples, across different study populations and health care systems, has suggested an association between adherence to somatropin and clinical outcomes, including height velocity. There is a need for further research, using real-wor...

Objective: KIGS (Pfizer International Growth Survey) was a large, international database of pediatric patients who received recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) as prescribed in real-world clinical settings. This analysis evaluated the long-term safety and efficacy data from all participants until KIGS close in 2012.Methods: Children with growth disorders and treated with rhGH (Genotropin® [somatropin]...
