Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the serum hGH (human growth hormone) concentration-time curve [ Time Frame: from 0 to the time of the last quantifiable concentration over a 24-hour sampling period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum observed serum hGH concentration [ Time Frame: over a 24-hour sampling period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the effect (IGF-I) curve [ Time Frame: from time 0 to the time of the last concentration (AUEC0-t) over a 96-hour sampling period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum IGF-I effect (Emax) [ Time Frame: over a 96-hour sampling period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The frequency of adverse events (AE) [ Time Frame: from screening (3-14 days before first dose of trial product) to follow-up period (day 17 after first dose of trial product) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The frequency of injection site reaction [ Time Frame: from the time of injection of the trial product (day 1 and 13, respectively) to follow-up during the two dosing periods (day 5 and 17, respectively) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Abnormal hematology laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: from screening (3-14 days before first dose of trial product) to follow-up period (day 17 after first dose of trial product) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Abnormal biochemistry laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: from screening (3-14 days before first dose of trial product) to follow-up period (day 17 after first dose of trial product) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Abnormal findings in physical examinations [ Time Frame: from screening (3-14 days before first dose of trial product) to follow-up period (day 17 after first dose of trial product) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Vital signs [ Time Frame: from screening (3-14 days before first dose of trial product) to follow-up period (day 17 after first dose of trial product) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
