J Clin Endocrinol Metab, 2022. 107(5): p. 1357-1367. PMID: 34964458Brief Summary: This multicenter, randomized, controlled, phase 2 study compared the effects of once-weekly long-acting growth hormone (GH) somapacitan versus daily GH administered to GH-deficient (GHD) children over a period of 156 weeks. Efficacy estimates were height velocity (HV; cm/y) at year 3 and changes from baseline to end for height SDS, HV SDS, IGF-I SDS, and insulin-li...

J Clin Endocrinol Metab, 2021. 106(11): p. 3184-3195. PMID: 34272849Brief Summary: This randomized, open-label, controlled, phase 3 trial compared the effects of once-weekly long-acting GH lonapegsomatropin versus daily GH in GHD children over a period of 52 weeks. Efficacy was evaluated by height velocity (HV) and height gain from baseline to end. The long-acting formulation showed not only non-inferiority but also superior efficacy compared to...
