  Purpose

The active ingredient of Pamorelin® 11,25 mg is Triptorelin. Triptorelin is a substitute for a natural hormone produced in the body called Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH). GnRH is a hormone secreted by hypothalamus (a gland located in brain) and controls the production of sex hormones (eg testosterone in men) in other organs in the body. The growth of prostate cancer cells, one of the most common cancers in men, is induced by the hormone testosterone. Hormonotherapy is one of treatments available to treat this type of disease by controlling the testosterone serum level. Pamorelin® 11,25 mg is normally injected in the muscle but this type of injection is not suitable for every patient. Therefore the primary purpose of this study is to assess the non-inferiority of the 12-week triptorelin formulation Pamorelin® 11,25 mg administered via subcutaneous (SC) injection as compared to Pamorelin® 11,25 mg administered via standard intramuscular (IM) injection based on the percentage of patients presenting a testosterone level ≤ 50 ng/dl at week 24.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of patients achieving a plasma testosterone level ≤ 50 ng/dl (1,7 nmol/l). [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Patient acceptability of the injection; the pain experienced during injection, scored by means of a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). [ Time Frame: Measured at baseline and 12 weeks ]
  • Care giver acceptability of the administration of the injection by means of a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). [ Time Frame: Measured at baseline and 12 weeks ]
  • Percentage of patients achieving a plasma testosterone level ≤ 50 ng/dl (1,7 nmol/l). [ Time Frame: Measured at week 12 ]
