Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Liver Function Tests [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The figures present the number of participants who had abnormal (defined as above upper limit of normal range (ULN)) alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels, aspartate aminotransferase levels, and bilirubin levels plus the number of participants who had ALT increases >3x ULN and ALT increases >3x ULN with concurrently increased bilirubin >1.5 ULN.

  • Participants With Markedly Abnormal Change in Vital Signs and Body Weight [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Vital signs and body weight included incidence of markedly abnormal changes in blood pressure (systolic and diastolic), pulse, and body weight at the end of trial as compared to baseline. The table presents the number of patients in each group with normal baseline and markedly abnormal value post-baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Serum Levels of Testosterone After 1, 2, and 3 Years [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 88
Study Start Date: October 2001
Study Completion Date: March 2006
Primary Completion Date: March 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Degarelix 80/80 + 40
In the main study (FE200486 CS02; NCT00819247) loading doses of degarelix 80 mg were given on Days 0 and 3. Maintenance doses of 40 mg were given on days 28, 56, 84, 112 and 140. In the extension study (FE200486 CS02A) the same maintenance dose of degarelix was given once every 4 weeks.
Drug: Degarelix
Given as a subcutaneous injection once every 4 weeks.
Other Name: FE200486
Experimental: Degarelix 40/40 + 40
In the main study (FE200486 CS02; NCT00819247) loading doses of degarelix 40 mg were given on Days 0 and 3. Maintenance doses of 40 mg were given on days 28, 56, 84, 112 and 140. In the extension study (FE200486 CS02A) the same maintenance dose of degarelix was given once every 4 weeks.
Drug: Degarelix
Given as a subcutaneous injection once every 4 weeks.
Other Name: FE200486
Experimental: Degarelix 80 + 20
In the main study (FE200486 CS02; NCT00819247) one loading dose of degarelix 80 mg was given on Days 0. Maintenance doses of 20 mg were given on days 28, 56, 84, 112 and 140. In the extension study (FE200486 CS02A) the same maintenance dose of degarelix was given once every 4 weeks.
Drug: Degarelix
Given as a subcutaneous injection once every 4 weeks.
Other Name: FE200486

Detailed Description:

Degarelix was not FDA regulated at the time of the trial. After completion of the trial degarelix has been approved by the FDA and is thus an FDA regulated intervention (FDA regulated intervention is therefore ticked "YES").

The data include participants from both the main study (FE200486 CS02; NCT00819247) and the extension study FE200486 CS02A.
