A Study of Leuprolide 11.25 mg and 30 mg Administered Every 3 Months to Treat Central Precocious Puberty
The purpose of this study is to determine if new formulations (11.25 and 30 mg) of leuprolide are effective in treating children with Central Precocious Puberty.
Approximately 80 children with confirmed Central Precocious Puberty will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive a total of two (2) injections of either leuprolide acetate 11.25 mg or 30 mg depot formulation, each injection administered 3 months apart (6 months of treatment):
This study includes a Screening Period (up to 4 weeks), two 3-month treatment cycles, and a posttreatment follow-up period (12 weeks following the Month 6 visit). Study visits will occur at Screening, Day 1, Week 2 (only for subjects participating in the PK subset), Months 1, 2, 3, Month 6/Early Termination, and 12 weeks later, for the Posttreatment Follow-up Visit.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
