Summary

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.

Description

Study Design:

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.
