A PHASE 3, RANDOMIZED, OPEN-LABEL, ACTIVE CONTROLLED, MULTICENTER STUDY TO EVALUATE MAINTENANCE OF RESPONSE, SAFETY AND PATIENT REPORTED OUTCOMES IN ACROMEGALY PATIENTS TREATED WITH OCTREOTIDE CAPSULES, AND IN PATIENTS TREATED WITH STANDARD OF CARE PARENTERAL SOMATOSTATIN RECEPTOR LIGANDS WHO PREVIOUSLY TOLERATED AND DEMONSTRATED A BIOCHEMICAL CONTROL ON BOTH TREATMENTS
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 sustained biochemical response up to 13 months in patients with acromegaly previously managed with somatostatin analog injections (ref). The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy safety and patient reported outcomes between oral octreotide capsules and injectable somatostatin analogs.

This research study is being done to determine whether taking a dietary supplement called capsinoids, derived from sweet peppers, can activate brown fat that is already present or even generate new brown fat in individuals with excess weight. Previous studies have suggested that chronic consumption of capsinoids may be able to generate new brown fat in thin individuals. Capsinoids may also have a small positive effect on metabolism (increased calorie-burning) and fat loss. The knowledge gained in this study may eventually lead to more treatment options for people with excess weight.
