Somapacitan, also known as NNC0195-0092,3 is a growth hormone analog indicated to treat adults with growth hormone deficiency.2,6 This human growth hormone analog differs by the creation of an albumin binding site, and prolonging the effect so that it requires weekly dosing rather than daily.5
Somapacitan was granted FDA approval on 28 August 2020.7
Somapacitan, sold under the brand name Sogroya, is a growth hormone medication. Somapacitan is a human growth hormone analog. Somapacitan-beco is produced in Escherichia coli by recombinant DNA technology.
The most common side effects include: back pain, joint paint, indigestion, a sleep disorder, dizziness, tonsillitis, swelling in the arms or lower legs, vomiting, adrenal insufficiency, hypertension, increase in blood creatine phosphokinase (a type of enzyme), weight increase, and anemia.
It was approved for medical use in the United States in August 2020.
Somapacitan (Sogroya) is the first human growth hormone (hGH) therapy that adults only take once a week by injection under the skin; other FDA-approved hGH formulations for adults with growth hormone deficiency must be administered daily.
Somapacitan is indicated for replacement of endogenous growth hormone in adults with growth hormone deficiency.
Somapacitan should not be used in people with active malignancy, any stage of diabetic eye disease in which high blood sugar levels cause damage to blood vessels in the retina, acute critical illness, or those with acute respiratory failure, because of the increased risk of mortality with use of pharmacologic doses of somapacitan in critically ill individuals without growth hormone deficiency.
Somapacitan was evaluated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in 300 particpants with growth hormone deficiency who had never received growth hormone treatment or had stopped treatment with other growth hormone formulations at least three months before the study. Particpants were randomly assigned to receive injections of weekly somapacitan, weekly placebo (inactive treatment), or daily somatropin, an FDA-approved growth hormone. The effectiveness of somapacitan was determined by the percentage change of truncal fat, the fat that is accumulated in the trunk or central area of the body that is regulated by growth hormone and can be associated with serious medical issues.
At the end of the 34-week treatment period, truncal fat decreased by 1.06%, on average, among particpants taking weekly somapacitan while it increased among particpants taking the placebo by 0.47%. In the daily somatropin group, truncal fat decreased by 2.23%. Particpants in the weekly somapacitan and daily somatropin groups had similar improvements in other clinical endpoints.
It was approved for medical use in the United States in August 2020. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the approval of Sogroya to Novo Nordisk, Inc.
