Efficacy and Safety of Octreotide Capsules (MYCAPSSA) in Acromegaly


Brief description of study

Octreotide capsule is a novel, orally-administered formulation of the commercially-available injectable drug octreotide. In a recent phase 3 trial, oral octreotide capsules demonstrated maintenance of biochemical response up to 13 months in the majority of patients with acromegaly previously managed with somatostatin analog injections (reference below).

Detailed Study Description

This is a double blind, randomized study that assesses the efficacy and safety of octreotide capsules vs. placebo. Eligible acromegaly patients, treated with injectable somatostatin analogs, who are biochemically controlled and have prior evidence of active disease, will be randomized to receive either octreotide capsules or placebo for up to 36 weeks. At the end of this double blind, placebo controlled period, eligible patients will receive octreotide capsules in an open-labeled extension for at least one year. Patients failing to respond (per protocol), to oral treatment, (either placebo or octreotide capsules), will be rescued with the standard of care and upon meeting the eligibility criteria could also enroll into the long term extension with octreotide capsules.

This study received agreement from the FDA, under a special protocol assessment.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03252353
