Acromegaly is typically caused by benign pituitary tumors that oversecrete growth hormone, which leads to elevated levels of IGF-1, producing the clinical signs and symptoms that characterize acromegaly.2 These effects may manifest slowly over the course of a decade or more.2
Veldoreotide is a novel investigational product under development by Strongbridge for use in treating acromegaly.
The safety and efficacy of veldoreotide for treatment of acromegaly have not been established.
