Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Somatropin in Adults With Growth Hormone Deficiency Caused by Trauma and/or Head Injury
Official Title  ICMJE Head Trauma With Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): A Multicenter, Phase IV Study to Evaluate the Effects of Genotropin in Adult Patients With Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) Caused by Trauma and/or Head Injury
Brief SummaryThe purpose of this study is to assess the prevalence of GHD in patients who sustain a head injury or suffer a major traumatic event and to evaluate the efficacy of growth hormone (GH) therapy in the treatment of GHD caused by trauma or head injury
Detailed DescriptionThe study was terminated on October 9, 2003. The reason cited for the termination was due to poor patient recruitment and therefore not enough data could be collected to provide comprehensive analysis for reporting of results. No safety or efficacy issues were reported to cause the termination of the study.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 4
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE
  • Brain Injuries
  • Growth Hormone Deficiency Dwarfism
Intervention  ICMJE Genetic: somatropin
Somatropin will be administered as a daily subcutaneous injection; Fixed doses starting with 0.1 mg/day in patients older than 55 years or patients weighing less than 50 kg; all other patients: 0.1 mg/day or 0.2 mg/day (these doses should all be lower than 0.04 mg/kg/week); all patients starting at 0.1 mg/day will have their dose progressively increased in 0.1 mg/day increments to a maximum clinically- and pharmacologically- tolerated plateau dose; all patients starting at 0.2 mg/day will increase in 0.2 mg/day increments; all incremented dose changes will occur at monthly intervals based on IGF-I levels; treatment will continue for 12 months
Study Arms  ICMJE Experimental: 1
Intervention: Genetic: somatropin
