PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of LB03002, a sustained-release human GH (SR-hGH), compared with that of daily rhGH for 12 months in children with GH deficiency (GHD). METHODS: A total of 73 children with GHD were screened and 63 eligible subjects were randomized in a 1:1 ratio of LB03002 (SR-hGH) to daily rhGH treatment group. LB03002 was administered once weekly at a dose of 0.5 mg/kg while daily rhGH was administered for 6 consecutive days with equally divided doses to make a total of 0.21 mg/kg per week. Treatments were given for 12 months by s.c. injections. Injection site reactions and adverse events were investigated throughout the study period. RESULTS: The mean (S.D.) height velocity (HV) SHOWED a clinically significant increase after the 6-month treatment: 3.00 (1.15) cm/year at screening to 9.78 (1.98) cm/year at 6 months in the LB03002 group; 2.39 (1.63) cm/year at screening to 10.56 (2.65) cm/year at 6 months in the daily rhGH group. The increased HV at 12 months was still maintained in both the groups: 9.06 (1.63) cm/year at 12 months in the LB03002 group; 9.72 (2.32) cm/year at 12 months in the daily rhGH group. Most of the adverse drug reactions were mild and tolerable. No subjects were withdrawn due to adverse events. CONCLUSION: Weekly injection of LB03002 at a dose of 0.5 mg/kg per week was confirmed to have comparable efficacy to daily injection of rhGH at a dose of 0.21 mg/kg per week. Both formulations were well tolerated.
