- Genetics & Neuroendocrinology of Short Stature
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term effects of the growth hormone (Humatrope) based on observational data. The primary objectives are to characterize defects in genes corrected with growth disorder or the pituitary gland; develop growth deficiency, which may...
- H80-MC-GWBQ Efficacy of Exenatide in Adolescent Patients with Type 2 Diabetes
The primary objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that glycemic control, as measured by change in hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) from baseline to endpoint, with exenatide is superior to that of placebo after 28 weeks of treatment in adolescent patientswith type 2 diabetes ...
