Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: IONIS-GHR-LRx
Single Dose of IONIS GHR-LRx administered subcutaneously once every 28 days for 16 weeks
Drug: IONIS-GHR-LRx
Single Dose of IONIS GHR-LRx administered subcutaneously once every 28 days for 16 weeks

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo (sterile saline 0.9%) Calculated volume to match active comparator administered subcutaneously every 28 days for 16 weeks
Drug: Placebo
Placebo (sterile saline 0.9%) Calculated volume to match active comparator administered subcutaneously every 28 days for 16 weeks




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy of IONIS GHR-LRx as percent change in serum IGF-1 from Baseline to 28 days after last dose [ Time Frame: Baseline and 28 days after the last dose ]
  2. Incidence and severity of adverse events that are related to treatment with IONIS GHR-LRx. [ Time Frame: Up to 211 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients achieving normalized IGF-1 levels to within 1.2 times of gender and age limits at 28 days after last dose [ Time Frame: 28 days after the last dose ]
  2. Proportion of patients achieving normalized IGF-1 levels to within 1.0 times of gender and age limits at 28 days after last dose [ Time Frame: 28 days after the last dose ]
  3. Change from Baseline in serum IGF-1 over time [ Time Frame: Up to 31 weeks ]
  4. Percent change from Baseline in Serum IGF-1 over time [ Time Frame: Up to 31 weeks ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Males or females with documented diagnosis of Acromegaly, aged 18-75 years old (inclusive) at the time of informed consent
  2. Patients must be on stable maximum or maximally tolerated dose of SRL (Lanreotide Autogel or Octreotide LAR, per treating physician judgment) every 28 days for a minimum of 3 months prior to screening and will be required to continue their stable dose of SRL throughout the study. Prior use of other medications for treating acromegaly is allowed but not within 6 weeks of screening.
  3. At Screening, serum IGF-1 (performed at central lab) between 1.3 to 5 x ULN, inclusive, adjusted for age and sex
  4. Females must be non-pregnant and non-lactating, and either surgically sterile, post-menopausal, abstinent, or using 1 highly effective method of birth control

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients who received surgery for pituitary adenoma within the last 6 months before the trial, or planning to receive surgery during the trial
  2. Patients who received radiotherapy for pituitary adenoma within the last 3 years before the trial, and/or planning to receive radiotherapy during the trial
  3. Patients with pituitary tumor that, per Investigator judgement, is worsening as assessed by pituitary/sellar MRI protocol at Screen or within 6 months of screening
  4. Evidence of decompensated cardiac function per medical judgement and/or NYHA class 3 or 4
  5. Clinical evidence of symptomatic hyperprolactinemia that would necessitate treatment
  6. Patients may not have insulin, chronic systemic use of glucocorticoids, weight loss medications or participate in weight loss programs within 2 months before randomization and during study participation.
  7. Patients on anti-diabetes medication or estrogen containing medications must be on a stable dose and regimen for >= 3 months prior to screening and throughout the trial
