Single Dose Pharmacology Study of DG3173 and Octreotide in Acromegalic Patients.
A Study of the Effect of Ascending Single Doses of DG3173 and 300 μg of Octreotide on Human Growth Hormone Levels in Untreated Acromegalics.
The study is designed to investigate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of DG3173 in untreated acromegaly patients. Twenty patients received ascending single doses of DG3173 and one dose of octreotide, the current gold standard of medical therapy for acromegaly, with each patient receiving all doses of DG3173 as well as octreotide.
Participants With Trough Human Growth Hormone < 2.5 ug/mL

Octreotide, then ascending DG3173
Description: Interventions: octreotide and DG3173. Eligible patients are to receive 300 µg octreotide as active comparator, followed by four ascending doses of 100 µg, 300 µg, 900 µg and 1800 µg DG3173. All treatments will be administered consecutively to all patients as single subcutaneous bolus injections.
