European Increlex® (Mecasermin [rDNA Origin] Injection) Growth Forum Database - IGFD Registry

2014-08-27 03:22:07 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to collect long-term safety information on the use of recombinant DNA-derived human Insulin Growth Factor-1 (rhIGF-I) Increlex® replacement therapy for the treatment of children with growth failure.


Surveillance registry, defined as a post-authorisation observational registry, called the Eu-IGFD {European Increlex® (Mecasermin [rDNA Origin] Injection) Growth Forum Database} which is intended primarily to monitor the safety of Increlex® replacement therapy in children with growth failure and secondly to follow the efficacy of this treatment. Patients who have already started Increlex® therapy before entering this observational registry may be included in this registry and data will be collected retrospectively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.

A persistent activity-dependent decrease in synaptic efficacy between NEURONS. It typically occurs following repeated low-frequency afferent stimulation, but it can be induced by other methods. Long-term depression appears to play a role in MEMORY.

Work that is a report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques after phase II trials. A large enough group of patients is studied and closely monitored by physicians for adverse response to long-term exposure, over a period of about three years in either the United States or a foreign country.
