OPKO Announces Completion of Enrollment in Phase 3 Trial of hGH-CTP in Growth Hormone Deficient Adults

OPKO Health, Inc. has completed enrollment in the single pivotal Phase 3 trial of its long acting human growth hormone (hGH-CTP) in growth hormone deficient (GHD) adults.

The trial is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of hGH-CTP with a primary endpoint of superiority compared to placebo in decreasing fat mass in adults with GHD. The trial is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center, global study in adults with GHD. The study is divided into two treatment periods: a 26-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled period, followed by a 26-week, open-label extension.

The study is expected to end toward the second half of 2016; regulatory submission will follow study completion.
