Estimated Enrollment: 8
Study Start Date: May 1998
Detailed Description:

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients receive an escalating dose of recombinant human insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I). IGF-I is given subcutaneously twice a day. The dose of IGF-I is increased each day for 4 days. Glucose is administered intravenously, when necessary, to prevent hypoglycemia.

Following the study treatment patients resume prior medication and may undergo surgery.


Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 3 Months
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No


--Disease Characteristics--

  • Diagnosis of hyperinsulinism (i.e., evidence of fasting hypoglycemia with inadequate suppression of insulin, normal pituitary and adrenal function, and increased insulin action)
  • Intractable hypoglycemia (i.e., persistent IV glucose requirement for maintaining glucose levels greater than 60 mg/dL)
  • Failed standard treatment regimen of diazoxide, octreotide, and frequent feedings to control hypoglycemia
  • No other major medical problems
