Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
|Official Title:||Long-term Safety Follow-up After Growth Hormone Treatment (rhGH) of Short Children Born Small for Gestational Age (SGA)|
- Evaluate the long-term effect of growth hormone treatment on the development of diabetes after end of therapy. [ Time Frame: 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term effect of growth hormone treatment on the development of diabetes in short children born SGA for 10 years after the end of treatment.
- To evaluate the incidence of anti-rhGH antibodies and anit-HCP antibodies after 6 months after termination of growth hormone treatment. [ Time Frame: 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
The secondary objectives of this study are:
- to report the incidence of anti-rhGH antibodies and of E. coli host cell peptide (HCP) antibodies (ABs) 6 months after termination of growth hormone treatment.
- to evaluate final height in follow-up period
- to evaluate IGF-I and IGFBP-3 levels for 10 years after end of growth hormone treatment
- to evaluate incidence and severity of adverse events
