Lanreotide Autogel-120 mg as First-Line Treatment of Acromegaly

Official Title

A Multicenter, Open, Prospective, Observational Study to Investigate the Effect of Lanreotide Autogel 120 mg on Control of GH and IGF-I Excess and Tumor Shrinkage in Newly Diagnosed Patients With Acromegaly

Brief Summary

      Recently, a new formulation of lanreotide, lanreotide Autogel (ATG) 60 mg, 90 mg and 120 mg
      was developed in order to further extend the duration of the release of the active
      ingredient. The ATG formulation consists of a solution of lanreotide in water with no
      additional excipients. ATG was found to have linear pharmacokinetics for the 60 to 120 mg
      doses and provided a prolonged dosing interval and good tolerability (1). In some previous
      studies, the ATG was demonstrated as effective as the micro-particle lanreotide (2,3) and as
      octreotide-LAR in patients with acromegaly (4-7).

      Data on the efficacy of ATG in newly diagnosed patients with acromegaly are still lacking.
      Similarly, the prevalence and amount of tumor shrinkage after ATG treatment is unknown. This
      information is particularly useful in the setting of first-line therapy of acromegaly that is
      currently becoming a more frequent approach to the disease (8). It is demonstrated that
      approximately 80% of the patients treated with depot somatostatin analogues as first line
      have a greater than 20% tumor shrinkage during the first 12 months of treatment (9). A
      definition of significant tumor shrinkage was provided in 14 studies (including a total
      number of patients of 424) and the results showed that 36.6% (weighted mean percentage) of
      patients receiving first-line somatostatin analogues therapy for acromegaly had a significant
      reduction in tumor size (10). About 50% of the patients were found to have a greater than 50%
      tumor shrinkage within the first year of treatment (10); in this study we found that percent
      decrease in IGF-I levels was the major determinant of tumor shrinkage (10).

      The current open, prospective study is designed to investigate the prevalence and amount of
      tumor shrinkage in newly diagnosed patients with acromegaly treated first-line with ATG.

Detailed Description

      This is an open, prospective, observational, clinical study to be performed in two University
      Hospitals (Naples and Genova, Italy). The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of
      the ATG 120 mg on control of GH and IGF-I excess in acromegaly according with the currently
      accepted criteria (12) and on tumor shrinkage. The secondary objectives are to assess
      improvement of clinical symptoms and safety profile. The study population will consist of at
      least 20 patients, enrolled in the two centers from Jan 1st 2003 to June 30th 2007. Patients
      give their written informed consent prior to entering into the study. The study was performed
      according to the principles defined by the declaration The safety population, as defined by
      the protocol, consists of patients who received at least one study drug dosing.

      Hormonal evaluation GH levels are assessed as a mean value of 5 samples at 30-min intervals
      (starting between 08:00 and 9:00 in the morning) taken at each visit before the injection of
      ATG. IGF-I levels are assessed as a single sample taken at each visit at the same time as the
      first GH sample. All hormonal parameters were assessed in a central laboratory (University of

      Improvement in clinical symptoms is considered on the basis of a semiquantitative scale for
      asthenia, hyperhidrosis, headache, swelling of extremities, arthralgia, paraesthesia, carpal
      tunnel syndrome: symptoms were graded as 0 = absent, 1 = mild, 2 = moderate, 3 = severe.

      Any adverse event (AE) during the study is monitored and reported by the investigators.
      Safety, evaluated by local laboratory data, is assessed at inclusion and at the final visit
      by: hematology: erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, haemoglobin, hematocrit; biochemistry:
      glucose, creatinine, alkaline phosphatase, total bilirubin, alanine aminotransferase (ALT),
      aspartate aminotransferase (AST), electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorous)
      glycosylated haemoglobin, triglycerides, total and high density lipoproteins (HDL)
      cholesterol, blood amylase, iron, transferrin, prothrombin; glucose and insulin
      concentrations; hormonal evaluation: thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), free triiodothyronine
      (FT3), free triiodothyronine (FT4), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing
      hormone (LH) levels. Safety related to gallbladder is assessed by ultrasound examination
      performed at inclusion and at the end of the study.
